    China ku inawo ile omo o ni ba gbese e nle; It’s all a about show off. Have they consider economy down-turns it will create in the future as well as the maintenance of the buildings inside building. Because, I’m of the opinion that they must have borrow the money from other nation to execute the projects. Many Nations have done greater things in the past, which their citizens are bearing the brunch (economy wise).

    Somepeople are just fool, for someone that is educated to be asking how a commerce center will bring food to peoples table show ignorance and lack of understanding.the construction alone had given people food not to talk of the activities that will be going on there.maintenance of the place has created jobs already. Fool on the net.

    Some people are just punks that doesn’t know what basic knowledge is. Nigeria did Festac ’77 built National Theatre, what is the outcome or effect of it on Nigeria economy and how much job does it creates, couple with the condition of the building today? Then it was number one in West Africa if not in the whole of Africa. If you don’t know, do your fact finding and analysis before running your stinking mouth on people next time. Because I’m sure you weren’t born during Festac ’77. Even US government the richest nation on Earth borrowed money from other Nations. The impact of which is reflecting on their economy nationwide as at now.
