OWERRI | Hand of God Project | Proposed | AFRICA'S TALLEST

Quote:
For us, completion is already planned. We have a chart we are following and we have tarred most of the roads. If you go to Ekinegbo road you will see it, but we intend to have all the roads tarred before the end of September. If you go to Oguta, what they used to call water-lake, you will see that we are turning it into a Bar Beach now and we are turning it around, even the hotel has been completely renovated. It is not something I think I can take credit, I think there is hand of God in it. I think Angels are beginning to award contracts themselves. But there is the monumental project, which you are not seeing yet. In the last two weeks we awarded a contract of about N31 billion naira for the 'Hand of God'? The 'Hand of God' is going to be the tallest tower in Africa, if not in Africa and Europe.

This seems to be a very dubious project and I nearly didn't post it because it seemed so dubious. Maybe it's not and someone might have more information.

Me too, and I hope some Nigerian posters see this thread. Maybe they'll know something.

Owerri is in the south east, not the north east

Rochas may be the biggest dupe ever. I went to Owerri last week and I didnt see any roads/projects being constructed. The guy may be all talk with no action.

There are/were definitely road/infrastructure being constructed. Maybe not in areas you went. The Port Harcourt Federal road is under construction, there's some kind of works/beautification going on near Modotel/Weatheral. Plus there have been completely new roads built. I'm not even a government follower.
