Jonathan, Clinton Inspect Eko Atlantic City

President Goodluck Jonathan is in Lagos with former US president Bill Clinton to inspect the Eko Atlantic City project before departing to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, to participate in the 3rd Summit of Heads of State and Government of Africa and South America.

The president is listed among the keynote speakers at the summit which has the objective of promoting political and economic cooperation between the two continents which will take place on Friday, February 22, 2013.

Other speakers include the Presidents of Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea, former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, former president Lula da Silva of Brazil and the current chairman of the African Union.

A statement from the presidency says President Jonathan will be accompanied to the summit by the Minister of Transport, Alhaji Idris Umar, the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mr. Edem Duke and the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Prof. Viola Onwuliri. Dr. Jonathan is expected back in Abuja on Friday.

The Eko Atlantic City is a multi billion naira land reclamation project along the Bar Beach coastline in Victoria Island. It will be a new home to 250,000 people and the workplace of another 150,000.

The 10 square kilometre development will have waterfront areas, tree-lined streets, efficient transport systems and mixed-use plots that combine residential areas with leisure facilities, offices and shops.

    In the fisrt place , I am one of those who see the huge money spent to reclaim land from ocean as idiotic. We are not Japan or Hong kong that depend so much on the land recovered from the ocean. We have abundant lands all around Lagos area if this city must be sited in the Lagos area. The huge money spent reclaiming land will go a long way in building more houses and bettering the infrastructure of Lagos state than this senseless adventure. The second thing is, ” What will Obasanjo be doing in that summit in Equatorial Guinea, is it not time yet that this man stopped disgracing himself ? “.  He always likes himself to be seen among world leaders in Conferences where he actually contributes nothing and where no world leader takes him serious. Please help me tell Obasanjo that he has enough group pictures of world leaders hanging on the walls of his houses, he does not need more. The world leaders are in summits to find solution to world problems and not for photo taking
