    Hahaha see expensive buildings every where in Abuja, Lagos and Kano. For instance, the international conference center Abuja Nigeria, cost Nigeria government more than 700 hundred millions of dollars.

    I’m sure the writer hasn’t been all over the continent of Africa…number one, and number two…there are buildings that predate Europe and America in Africa who’s cost is unimaginable. A Billion dollar building constructed by today’s engineers can’t even withstand the winds of a tropical storm. Ours have withstood Time!
