    Hi, do you reckon once finished it would be a famous landmark?

  • Jim w

    And if i may ask, what other landmarks are there in Nigeria? just trying to learn a bit more before our visit later this year

    • Thanks for you interest! Yes it certainly will be a landmark. However to make sure it remains one it will need to be maintained properly. The National theatre in Lagos is also a landmark but it hasn’t been maintained well. Still one nonetheless.
      Calabar is another wonderful place in Nigeria. In Cross River state you’ll find what is known as the worlds 2nd best preserved forest with a vast array of wild animals.
      There are still many others across the country!
      Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss a post about another landmark. 🙂
