Sen.Annie Okonkwo recently disclosed that Governor Okorocha had attracted a multi-million dollar shopping mall to the State. The project is said to be worth $500 million US Dollars.
Sen. Annie Okonkwo who is also a major stakeholder in the project said the shopping mall will be built by a consortium led by Topright and in partnership with Shopright, Walmart and other notable world supermarkets chains.
He stated that the project was feasible due to the conducive environment and infrastructural advancement which Gov. Okorocha’s administration had provided for investment flow into the state.
This is commendable o! But, how far with the existing Aladinma mall structure? It was only two years ago that the former Governor, Ikedi Ohakim commissioned it and was said to have cost 2.5 Billion naira. How it was allowed to become non functional, only God knows. Are we going to abandon it or will the new mall be an extension?
