cjrane:They are selling land there to interested public and never really planned to build the houses. Their work there is to maintain a good city plan in the area and maintain infrastructure when built.
I already got a plot there

Chinese company offers to rehabilitate Enugu-Onitsha Expressway on concession
The construction company would rehabilitate the road with its sourced fund, while a process of recouping the money invested would be worked out
A Chinese construction company, China CAMC Engineering Limited, has offered to rehabilitate the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway on Built, Operate and Transfer concession.
The company, led by Dr. Chuma Ezedimma of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, made the disclosure on Friday during a courtesy call on Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.
Ezedimma, who is in-charge of the UNIDO Regional Office in Nigeria, said the Chinese company was a public-owned firm in Asia.
He said the construction company would rehabilitate the road with its sourced fund, while a process of recouping the money invested would be worked out.
“The idea is for China CAMC to rehabilitate the road and toll it for a number of years that will be agreed on to recoup its investment before transferring it to government,” Ezedimma said.
He said funds for rehabilitation of the road would not be a problem as the company had already taken advantage of the China-Africa fund in its operations.
According to him, the company is a reliable partner with UNIDO and has a wide range of interest, which includes power, oil and gas, petrochemical among others.
He said: “The mission of China CAMC Engineering Limited in Nigeria is to seek for investment in several areas like agriculture, infrastructure, mining and social investments.
“As a public and centrally owned company, it has access to the China-Africa fund, which is a $60 billion fund, which we want to use to promote technology and investment in Nigeria.”
Ezedimma said they were in the State to solicit positive partnership in the area of infrastructural development.
He urged the government of Anambra and Enugu States to table the proposal for the rehabilitation of the road to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.
Responding, Ugwuanyi expressed delight in the interest of the company to invest in the state.
He said the state government had interest in direct foreign investment, which necessitated the first Enugu State Investment Summit held in April.
The governor said his administration would provide the enabling environment for all investors that sought to do business in the state to thrive.
“The interest of China CAMC to invest in our state is much welcome and we shall make them comfortable and their investments safe,” Ugwuanyi said.

Nsukka residents seek exploration of gas, crude deposits

Nsukka residents seek exploration of gas, crude deposits
•The abandoned site
A natural gas and oil well discovered about 50 years ago at Ehalumona in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State has remained untapped since its discovery.
The residents have expressed the desire to see exploration activities at the site.
The natural gas and oil deposit in the area is said to be in large commercial quantity and estimated to last for over 50 years.
An indigenous oil and gas company, Seveen Energy was said to have acquired the site for exploration but abandoned it for what insiders called political interference.
The vast gas site was first discovered by CGG Company prior to the Nigerian Civil War in 1966. It has been overgrown with weeds and left in a deplorable state.
The untapped crude deposit found in abundance in the area has traces of the same deposits in other communities in Nsukka and also cut across local governments in the area.
The areas that have traces of the crude deposits include Obollo Ekeh, Ezebinagu, Isi Uzo, amomg others.
The major base of the oil is in Ehalumona and it has about 30% petrol and 70% natural gas deposits.
The residents of the oil rich communities have expressed worry over the inability of the indigenous company, Seveen Energy to carry on further explorative activities since the Federal Government awarded it since 2013.
The residents dislosed that the Seveen Energy company had carried out a siesmic operation they termed environmental impact assessment in February 2014 at the abandoned oil zone.
In 2008 the huge natural gas deposit attracted Geokinetic Gas and Oil Plc, for further exploration of the site but failed to continue.
A community leader, Cletus Akor disclosed that prior to the Nigerian civil war in 1966, the oil and gas deposits had earlier attracted CGG company where they carried it’s first seismic exploration but couldn’t continue as a result of the severity of the civil war.
The community youth leader, Oji Uzo expressed his dissatisfaction over the abandoned oil-rich zone, describing it as a waste of both human and capital resources.
He said: “This type of thing should not be joked with. Look at an endowment being overlooked, something that would have been a source of employment opportunities for jobless Nigerian youths is overgrown by grasses. When this company first came here, our youth were employed as labourers and some worked in other lucrative positions, but look at how delapidated it is, a treasure of a nation.
“They told us that they would test the natural gas which they did and carried a half tanker of the crude gas for test, but we have not heard from them again.”
Also, Mr. Jonathan Ugwuanyi disclosed that apart from the Natural gas located in the area that there are untapped natural resources like Gold, Coal, among other resources located in the area.
The traditional ruler of Ezebinagu /Ehandiagu communities, Igwe Daniel Ugwuanyi expressed his belief that the company may begin exploration of the natural gas soon.
He said: “If this gas deposit is explored, it will create job opportunities for the people as well as a source of revenue for the Federal and State government.”
He said that the gas deposit would likely foster the construction of the much neglected Nsukka, Ehalumona, Ehandiagu, Mbu-Ikem road,” he said.
He therefore apealed to the State and Federal government to react positively to the abandoned huge gas deposit located in Ezebinagu/ Ehandiagu communities.

If there was another re-run of presidential elections, we igbos would have still voted for GEJ. He simply was the first president to do "something" for the igbos since after d civil war. We for the first time felt integrated to the country called Nigeria. Appointing an army chief by GEJ was a good shock for us... We never believed a day like that will come. Please since APC has won d election, we are only asking for unity and not all this hate and killings we have endured for decades. We love you all
