Tinubu In China To Woo Investors For Lekki Free Trade Zone (Throwback) by trutharena: 2:15pm On Jun 23, 2022
Lagos — Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the weekend in Beijing, China mounted an aggressive marketing pitch to persuade Chinese investors to invest in the newly created Lekki Free Trade Zone.

Addressing over 500 captains of Chinese industry and top decision makers, Tinubu said China and other Asian economies had already recorded a feat as the Asian Tigers but must co-operate to ease the emergence of Nigeria as the African Tiger.

Lagos — LEKKI Free Trade Zone (LFTZ), the much celebrated multi-billion dollars bilateral business venture between Lagos State and the Chinese Investors has kicked off, with President Olusegun Obasanjo describing Governor Bola Tinubu of Lagos State as "a brilliant governor with brilliant ideas".

The LFTZ cited in Ibeju-Lekki local government area of the state, according to its managers, would occupy 1,000 hectares of land employing over 300,000 as workers on completion.

Lagos — Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Lagos State yesterday restated his determination to create a global business paradise in the Lekki Peninsular axis.

The governor spoke at the Alausa oval office when he hosted members of the Lekki free trade zone committee and private investors from China who were at Alausa oval office to brief him on the progress made since a similar meeting took place four months ago.

Records are always there and facts never lie. Lekki free trade zone is becoming a new city employing hundreds of thousands.

The same people who are some if the greatest beneficiaries of Tinubu's vision are now his greatest critics. It was the same thing they did to Awolowo. These people came from the South East to enjoy Awolowo's free education policy in the early 80s but hated him so much.

I think the best thing is for Nigeria to adopt true federalism with a certain percentage of jobs reserved for people in that region. Lets see how some people will survive if they had to go back to their region.

This same free trade zone now hold billion $$ investments for Lagos. This is a man with foresight, he plan and build a long lasting framework that can be continued with successive government.

When we tell these guys why we are supporting Tinubu because of his past succes as goevrnor, they abuse us and compare him with Obituary OR they accuse us of tribalism.

How can you even compare Tinubu success as governor and ability to grow economy to expand revenue base to that of Obi?

Lol, that free zone now hold one of the largest refinery in the world. The tax Lagos will generate from that will be more than Anambra budget in a full year.

Obi Pandora is a lazy economist, in his period he did not expand Anambra revenue base but rather saved money instead. His lack of foresight was why Obiano spent all the money and Soludo met an empty treasury.

Now Sanwo-Olu will benefit from Dangote tax due to the foresight and economic prowress of Tinubu who understood that investments and thinking for the future will save a state.

You also have Eko Atlantic which currently attract investment from even USA government, they will pay taxes to Lagos. This is how you build a state.

We need Tinubu in Nigeria to help us set a proper structure that allow continuity and growth. How can you see all his past achievement and still not believe in him to turn Nigeria around for the better?

This is the type of purposeful leadership some ignorant interlopers are comparing with a certain Pandora tax haven fraudster who was stacking Anambra's commonwealth in offshore accounts while his people are forced to become economic migrants in neighbouring cities and states.


Vote TINUBU 2023. Vote APC.

When we judge him with Lagos today, you guys cry that he is not the governor.

When he brought out his success as governor that still stand till today, you guys cry we are bringing the past.

But the same Meth addicts are trending Obi brewery investment which he did a long time ago which eventually turned out to be a failed investment. You are hypocrites, all of you.

I pledge to support Tinubu if you can share a video or resent article where your master Tinubu has outlined what he will do for Nigeria apart from it's my turn.

This thing pain you seriously

E pele oo.

Obi left office when as Governor and when did Tinubu leave office. When was Obi's investment made

You guys should all go back to school to understand basic economics

The lagos you brandish is Tinubus private property but Tribe and religion has blinded you even as you wallow in poverty and blindly following him.

Lagos has high IGR but the loan the state is owing is higher than their monthly generated income. Lagos has the highest loan in the hwole of Africa for a city in a country.

When Obi was Governor, Anambra doctors were on strike for 13 months. You can Google it. It is all over the Internet. People died and he did not care. Why? His family either received treatment in Lagos or abroad.

When Obi was Governor of Anambra, Anambra ASUU was on strike for 6 months. Google is your friend. He did not care because his children schooled in England.

The Investment he made in International Breweries was not just bad for Anambra but a conflict of interest. Anambra paid 2billion naira for that failed investment but he awarded his family 1 billion without paying any cost. Peter Obi should be in jail if Nigeria had strong judiciary. No wonder he was impeached.

Yes. He could have learned why all Anambra indegenes are selling Gala and La Casera inside Lagos holdups and sleeping under Lagos bridges. Or have you ever seen a Lagos indegene sleeping under bridges in Onitsha or Owerri?

set yourself free from religious and ethnic slavery. Come clean, the reason you are not supporting Obi is because he is a christian and Igbo

He has told us what he will do. Can your oga at the top speak so we can check which plan serves us right in the interest of Nigeria.

I am from Cross River state. I voted OBJ in 1999 and 2003. Okadigbo and Buhari contested in 2003. I chose OBJ because he was better than Buhari/Okadigbo. 2007 i voted Yaradua/Good luck. There were Igbo and Yoruba contesters. 2015 I voted GEJ. 2023 i am voting Peter Obi. can you see i have gone round Nigeria in the interest of Nigeria but you lots see Nigeria through the eye of religion or tribe before chosing who to vote

I wont reply you again. If Tinubu wins and sells Nigeria rewarding political allies. Its not my problem I visit Nigeria twice every year to supervise my little company in Abuja. My second passport will take me to 180 countries of the world with no visa required. you see i am not the one to suffer neither will my children. God bless

Ashiwaju has done it before, he can do it again.

He has the antecedents Worth of consideration
richie240:

The noise makers know ds for a fact but right from inception of this great country, their Achilles heels has always been tribalism and bigotry.

The average ipobian had rather support a madman of Igbo descent than support an expert from another region all bcus "blood is thicker than water".
Their support for obi is not issue-based but ethnocentric. No amount of proof of excellent antecedents of tinubu will make them see him in good light talkless of vote for him; and no amount of proofs of wrongdoings of obi will stop them from voting obi.

An African proverb says " the pounded yam of 20 years can still scorch your hands". Las-las, by Feb 27, their eyes will clear!
you've said it all.
Thesame Tinubu they're using propaganda against has lots of legacy traced back to him in today Lagos but Obi has none in Anambra.

Yet they're blackmailing us into supporting a failure like Obi, the well packaged fraud from Alaigbo.

Vote Obi and stop disturbing us.

Despite the fact that campaign has not started, Tinubu for as far back as February said (as one of campaign promises) that WAEC and NECO examination will be free!


Tell us what are the campaign promises of Obi that made you think he's better than other aspirant if not that you all are emotional people who can't think deeply and easily driven by mere Political propaganda.

His lies has been busted many times!
He has his name linked to corruption!
He's not a youth!

What then made him a saint!

What are Obi legacies as Governor of Anambra, let's juxtapose.

It's a challenge.

You can't tell me he did what no Governor has ever done in Nigeria!

The Lekki FTZ is one of the biggest FDI in Nigeria history. It was because of the huge developmental and economic transformation that prompted Dangote to also quickly set up his refinery, biggest in Africa, in that zone too. This is the kind of visionary leader Tinubu is and the kind of visionary leader that will be president by 2023.

But Peter Obi went to Egypt to learn how to make his brain work, because it stopped working since he left APGA. Unfortunately for him, it was a wasted journey because he is back in Nigeria and his brain is still not working. The political prostitute is presently planning to become Kwankwaso's VP grin
