    @Lacey why should those 3 LAGOSIANS care about your hometown or state? SMH

    In most of these states, you cannot even buy/lease land or own property if you not an indigene (heck, if you from the ‘wrong’ LGA of the state), meanwhile Nigerians from all across the country and the world (heck, many West Africans) are voting with their feet and wallet into Lagos. That $16bn Dangote refinery is PRIVATE investment, as if Eko Atlantic City, the Lekki Deep Sea Port (until NPA ‘muscled’ its way into it with a small equity holding), as are scores of other PRIVATE investments in Lagos. PRIVATE investors vote with their feet and their wallet, and investment goes where it is most welcome. Look at the LSETF granting low-cost loans and credit to all eligible Lagos RESIDENT SME entrepreneurs, regardless of so-called State of Origin. In which other Nigerian state are they enlightened enough to follow suit? So go ahead and mock Lagos for so-called “mediocre infrastructure” and its so-called “expensive slums”, more AMBITIOUS fellow citizens (and even foreigners) will continue to vote with their feet and wallets!!

    LACEY, want some cheese with that whine? LMAO! Sure, Lagos benefited from previously being the federal capital, but since the FGN moved to Abuja over 27 years ago what exactly have they done in Lagos – other than abandoning their buildings and neglecting federal roads and infrastructure? Ahmadu Bello Road along the bar beach is littered with long abandoned and rundown liaison offices, as are the National Stadium, National Theatre, National Museum, Tafawa Balewa Square, Federal Secretariat Ikoyi, Independence Building, NITEL House, State House Onikan, etc., etc. Look at how Lagos has assumed the responsibility of completely rebuilding the shabby federal MMIA airport road, long neglected by your overlords in Abuja. Abegi, quit hating on Lagos and tell your own governors to get off their fat lazy behinds and try to do a quarter of what Lagos governors have done. Some Nigerians can so insular and petty!!

    All of you hailing Lagos for private investments. at what costs abeg? No company or person will invest their hard earned without expecting a significant return.
    @Ovadje- i didnt know Dangote is a Lagosian. When did this happen?

      @amebo, Aliko Dangote is Lagosian by virtue of living continuously in Lagos for over 30 years (that’s more time than he has lived in his parents’ state of Kano), but I see that you are one of those fixated by the “State of Origin” syndrome that I alluded to. That’s why you folks keep killing each other in endless so-called “Settler” vs “Indigene” fratricides even after countless years of living together (Ife-Modakeke, Kataf -Sango, etc., etc.), SMH

      Meanwhile, why should a private investor who takes the considerable risk of investing (instead of just sticking his cash in a bank and living off the interest), and thereby creating direct and indirect jobs and livelihoods for fellow citizens and generating tax income (corporate and income) for the government (hopefully to invest in infrastructure, including schools and hospitals) not be deserving of a “return”?!
