KANO | Kwankwasiyya City | Master-Plan | Under Construction ‎

Kwankwasiyya City - Kano







Name: Kwankwasiyya City
City: Kano
Use: Master-Plan
Status: U/C
Developer: Kano State Government


Quote:
Kano State’s Five Mega Projects: These are multi billion naira development projects comprising three planned cities (Kwankwasiyya, Amana and Bandirawo) and two transport terminals (North/South), which were initiated by the government of Kano state under the leadership of the Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso. The five mega projects have come into being as a result of the administration’s resolve to transform Kano into a mega city with world class facilities, thereby transforming it into one of the most economically developed states in Nigeria.

The state government has awarded contracts for the development of high quality infrastructure in each of the five project sites. Initially, the government’s plan for the cities was to allocate land to investors who will build their homes. However, that plan was reversed with the decision to build the homes and then sell them to interested parties. The terminals on the other hand, will be developed through Public Private Partnerships (PPP). It is hoped that by the year 2015, all the five projects will be fully operational.

Great the north need as much development as possible. The Nigerian federal government should pump in as much money in that region as possible. Inclusive infrastructural projects from modern schools, sporting facilities for the youth, massive social housing,Government loans to idle youth to start businesses and revival of Agric business. This Boko haram fight cannot be won by military warfare. America with its 600 billion dollars a year military budget haven't stop bombs from exploding everyday in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Welfare checks to mothers that send their kids to school. The Southern part of Nigeria are filled with more progressive people highly ambitious and intellectually superior to the Nigerian northern brothers and sisters. like one American president once said a country is as strong as it weakest link. To archive peace in Nigeria Southern Nigerian folks would have to bend over and sacrifice for the unity of Nigeria.

Hmm.....well, let's hope that with tax payers resources brought to bare in such a manner, the actors have sort to engage the local communities in the final scheme, also extension shouldn't be restricted to those that can afford the homes outright.

I take your point, it's indeed well articulated! Nevertheless, you missed an important aspect; one which cut across religion, ethnicity, geo-political divisions etc. As the saying goes, you can force a horse to the river; u can't force it to drink water! The said Federal government or whatever government prior, of which the Northerners has somewhat domicile monopoly has lavished considerably more resources in the North than any other region taken in isolation. Consequently, regardless of whatever initiatives and programs get propagated by whatever party, it's up to the citizens and communities to be receptive to these ideas. It's up to right thinking persons within those enclaves to reform the thought processes of their compatriots and hence channel their energies into constructive ventures. The reason for the disparity in the south as against the North, has a direct correlation with peoples acceptance of progressive ideals. As long as we remain a federation, it's the responsibility of the federal government to guarantee security of lives and property. Hence, it is prudent to continue to engage folks who are intolerant and fixed on a narrow perspective regardless of the cost. In a case where we simply can't get beyond religious and ideological differences, the fixation of a one Nigeria become increasingly farcical; in all honestly, meaningless!

Trust me i totally get what you are saying, but the fact of the matter is you can not have peace when one section of a country have illiteracy rate running at over 80 percent with about the same poverty rate.POVERTY+ IDLENESS+ILLITERACY=TIME BOMB.Critical decisions have to be made now or never. The Federal Government have to step in and demand those implementations. If the Northern folks don't want the help offered to them on a platter of Gold then the country should divide. I was in Yobe State in 2008 the hopelessness and poverty i saw, i knew that it was just a matter of time before hell let loose.

I share your sentiments, broadly speaking! As regards the illiteracy levels, It can be a wee bit misleading as those account doesn't factor in Islamic education which is prevalent in the North. Nevertheless, this feeds into my earlier script, there really isn't an appetite for accepting alternatives going by recent trend(boko haram, polio vaccination saga etc). It truly is perplexing!

Saw this since but didn't post it here
I think almost all the states should build a Terminus like Kano The northern and southern terminus is to contain Trailers i think at a cost of N18B and to solve the congestion in Kano, there would be a Metro currently CCECC is designing it contract for designing it was awarded months ago and to be ready by 2015, the state is also building 2 power plants of 35MW (20 + 15 )

illiteracy rates in NG are measured on your ability to read or write any language, not just english. though we're pretty gloom and doom about the north, between Kano and Kaduna alone the level of industry in that region is astonishing. Several other cities are very underrated.

Ok good to know Herachio, I guess all the industries in the north went down the drain because of Nigeria Power problems. Let just hope that this power privatization thingy get sorted out as quick as possible. I really have big hope for Nigeria, weaker and poorer African Countries need that big powerful black African country like Nigeria to look up to.

I actually think the favoritism government has shown the north throughout nigeria's history has been a part of the problem. One of the main sources of employment is government industry, which was put in the middle belt and north at a higher rate and number than in the south. The end result is almost all of the government industries were mismanaged and killed off by years of corruption so the employment base of the north went with it.

Yes that is why President Yar'adua awarded a contract for a 215MW power plant in Kaduna for industries ONLY,due to be completed by end of 2013 and not only in the North the whole country once we fix power, Nigeria would catapault forward

I think is time to think forward as Nigerians rather than a regionalist,ethnic groups or religion. There is no one region,state or ethnic group in this country that is advantageous comparatively over the other. Not even in the resources. For "Resources are not, they become". What is resource today may not be tomorrow. Whatever our sentiments, it's good to note that the future hold an answer. The north may be bombed , disadvantageous in any form, or rather criticized today, it may not tomorrow. The new development by the State government is centered towards the improvement of the happiness and quality of life of the Kano people and all. Let others follow positvely. We need to grow as people rather than grow in our sentiments. It's the better way to start. We all have a stake one way or the other...... To this I say they have started, so follow with good ideas. Don't throw stones!

Hamsa welcome to the forum my friend please don't feel offended every region in Nigeria has it challenges, the North like you said is not doomed the opportunities that are bound in that region is endless. We are just disappointed with the lack of political will on the part of the Northern political elite to bring changes in the life of an average northerner, and also Northern folks refusal to change for the better and become more accommodating to people with different believes. Just don't take this statement personally, but folks from the Northern part of Nigeria especially the northeast should ask themselves this questions? most Nigerian President came from this region, we dominated high Government positions since 1960 why are we still much poorer than our Southern Brethrens. We should be so mad to the extent that any time any politician will come to use us to destabilize the country for their political gains we will tell them to kiss our you know where the sun don't shine.

Thanks for the effort! Pfheeww...! I couldn't just go on with that guy of the issue. It is highlighted in numerous statistic, islamic education isn't factored into Nigeria's literacy level.
