As a people, we need to start building massive edifices like this just to make ourselves feel good. It does a lot for national morale when you unveil architectural masterpieces.

Sadly, nobody is discussing lifting national morale as part of this campaign. Our people need something to give them a lift just as the unveiling of Liberty Stadium, Cocoa House and the Western Nigeria Television Station once did.
