This is commendable.

The bad blood between Chimaroke and Sullivan didn't help Enugu in any way.

Only God knows what Rainbownet would have become had it still been in operation.

Ugwuanyi has done well for taking up the conference center.

However, I am not impressed with his performance one bit.

Well, reliable sources told me that Chime invited them to come and probe Chima's businesses in Enugu.
And that's how they also finished my lovely Cosmo FM

Many years of abandonment has caused this building to be looted and mindlessly vandalized.

The building already had a roof with complete tinted-glass tidings before it was shamefully abandoned.

Today, the roof panels and the high quality glass that gave it it's signature appearances has been stolen. Worse is that they will be replaced with inferior cheap quality replacements that will ultimately make the building and ugly piece of sh*t.

Even the tiled grey-colored marble used on the crown of the building has been stripped to probably be replace with mere green painting of the concrete wall.

This is a clear proof that Nigeria is retrogressing and not progressing.

I wonder how thieves had the boldness to strip the building of all its bespoke fixtures and fittings seeing as it’s so close to gov’t house!

Knowing how we do things, i think you’re right to be afraid Ugwuanyi will do a whack job on this....just to tick the box that he’s completed another abandoned project!

My take is that they should just complete this thing and wipe out shame from their faces. Politics in Nigeria is very vindictive and diabolic. this is similar thing Obiano is doing with the hotel and malls Obi started in Anambra State. Imagine cutting ones nose just to spite ones face. Our politics down East need to be look into, the vindictiveness is so much

This didn't happen just today. The road has been bad and nothing was done to maintain it. Just see its state today, it has finally split into 2 decimal places. Mistakenly someone dies here, everyone will start calling Devil or blaming God for allowing it.

From the point of view when these estates were started, your post is a little deceptive by posting older estates which predates the present administration. The key burning issue today is about Government not being strategic in opening up more lands to make cost of land affordable. The Estates you see today at zoo gardens, Independence Layout Phase II and Golf Estates were possible because previous administrations worked hard to make them available in the past 10 - 15 years. Gov. Ugwuanyi's regime has not opened any new estates in Enugu city, except a few he opened at Nsukka where his priority lies anyway.

Compared to Abia and Ebonyi states, although Enugu, Anambra and Imo state government have assisted new estate developers by opening access roads into new areas, more needs to be done to open up more standard estates and expedite the process of land acquisition for investors.


Abia state has continued to lag behind in new estate development, even when Abia has the best potential to utilize it's closeness to Port Harcourt to open up land just before the River into Obigbo (Oyigbo) Rivers State. Such an estate if well planned will easily attract investors from PH who would take advantage of cheaper land to build in the estates closer to PH. But Abia currently has the WORST leaders in Igboland and therefore, i don't expect them to see the point i am making. Instead, they will attack me for pointing out how they could take full advantage of proximity to Port Harcourt to boost Estate Development along Port Harcourt - Aba Expressway the way Asaba has experience housing estate boom by taking advantage of it's proximity to Onitsha. Instead, Aba has practically remained frozen in time and not developing at the rate expected of a major city of its size and one which is very close to Port Harcourt easily Nigeria's second biggest financial capital.

If you don't know, it is possible to ask before making wrong aspersions. My intent was not on who created the estate, but to show that the estates are being developed by individuals.

Saying the Ugwuanyi didn't create any estate, means you are ignorant. These are the estates created by his administration in Enugu. Completion of their development is a different thing altogether.

1. Heliu Estate

2. Ranger Phase 2

3. Valley Estate

4. Citadel Estate

5. Transparency Estate

6. WTC Estate.

Dude STOP lying!

Ugwuanyi has NEVER started any estate in Enugu except in Nsukaa! Shame on you for claiming Heliu or even Jedidiah as Ugwuanyi's estates. Yes, he was Governor when they were built. But what was his contribution in helping land acquisition of even providing access roads for new developers to come to Enugu? == ZERO!

Tomorrow, i can also see Buhari claiming he built the estates in Enugu because he was President when people built it to address housing deficit and he contributed ZERO to the effort to make it happen. Look at the NEW Estates in ESHDC website and tell me how many fully owned Government ones have come into reality since Ugwuanyi's tenure?

I don't normally like to respond to people who cross other peoples comments. They come out as rude people with extreme low-self esteem. But I will reply you. The governor was instrumental in land acquisition for these estates...Heliu was even an acronym of his title... Can you tell how other governors created their estates like Golf, Liberty, and ZOO?

An ambitious effort to shore up the internally generated revenue base of Enugu state has begun in earnest, with the launch of a new town development along the Enugu-PortHarcourt Expressway that will yield over N1trillion to the coffers of the government.

The new layout, christened, Heliu residences (an acronym drawn from the name of the state governor, His Excellency Lawrence Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Heliu) is the first district being created by the state government since the creation of Enugu state, 25 years ago.

The new urban community, covering over 132 hectares of land, is divided into two with one section for the construction of 500 houses of a single family or twin family duplexes/bungalows to be solely financed by a Consortium led by FIT Consult and 500 plots of land for sale to individuals for development.

Don't mind the chap. Most of them will sit in their houses in other states and saying what they don't know. I concede the fact that Ugwuanyi has not done much in Enugu city in terms of infrastructure like Umahi of Ebonyi state, but it will be a lie to say he didn't create any estate in Enugu.

As you for, Biko shut up!

Your own is just to put up deceit online and when you are challenged, you begin to yap rubbish. Putting up pictures of estates done by other Governors and passing them as Ugwuanyi's is deceitful. Someone talked about WTC, i have not challenged him yet, until i verify it's not a state government effort, then i will point it out. I don't challenge people if they are telling the truth.

few peeps would buy into an estate (unless it's within an economic zone) on aba-ph axis, the road not only is bad, but insecurity around ph is high. Housing in aba is not an issue, we need multiple lane roads not estates, the areas around abak, aba sports club, umuichichi /glass force, aba malt plant and many others can pass as estates. Don't know why the governors of my state refused to see beyond tribe to develop aba

Dude, i hate LIARS that is my problem with you.

Perhaps i went too far to say Ugwuanyi had Never developed any estate, but he had not performed as much as the expected level of a typical Governor of Enugu State would. Even WTC has less than 10 one-storey buildings which isn't even up to Loma Linda estates. Yet, we always rated and thought Chimaroke was the worst in promoting new estates.

Did I mention any estate in my first post? How did I lie? You started the estate thing. I was on the development of sections of the city, but you barged in with estates. So far, I have not seen any lie. You don't expect everybody to follow your views or opinions. It's rude and shows a massive lack of home training and proper upbringing. It will be dangerous to pass it on.
