COPIED: Hate Gen. Sani Abacha as you wish, his records of prudent management are yet to be matched talk more of broken.
Are you aware Gen.Abacha executed various projects without taking any loans?
…and what you are about to read are quite impressive that no matter the intensity of the “loot propaganda” against him and his family he is a HERO and a visionary leader.
Here are JUST A FEW of the NUMEROUS projects he executed within 4 years and 7 months his administration lasted without taking any loan.
1, National Assembly Complex.
2, Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG)
3, Federal Medical Centers (FMC) in all the State Capitals.
4, Built the National Hospital Abuja.

6, Aminu Kano Hospital, Kano
7, Gwarinpa Housing Estate (thd BIGGEST housing estate in Africa)
8, Apo legislative quarters
9, Aluminum Smelting Company, Akwa Ibom
10, PTF drugs and beds in all the federal government hospitals.
11, PTF roads and water projects across Nigeria.
12, Lecture halls, campus buses and hostels in all Federal universities.

Recall that Nigeria’s foreign reserve was $494 million in 1993 when Gen. Abacha took over as the Head of State.
With crude oil as Nigeria’s major earner dangling between $8-$9 per barrel, Gen. Abacha still grew it to $9.6 billion by the middle of 1997, decreased Nigeria’s debt from $36 billion to $27 billion, reduced an inflation rate of 54% inherited from Ernest Shonekan to 8.5% between 1993 and 1998.
And for those accusing him of being responsible for MKO Abiola’s death, take a deep breath remember Gen. Abacha died before MKO and ask your self one more time, who did the dirty work.
To my fellow youths from bayelsa, ARE YOU ALL AWARE GEN. ABACHA CREATED YOUR STATE?
May Allah SWT forgive his short comings and Grant him Jannatul Firdaus.
