    The proposed location for this mall is not clear. Is opposite Asaba International Airport on the Asaba Benin Road or along the Ibusa Asaba Road?

    I personally don’t see how Asaba at this point can support a $100 million shopping Mall.

    You know how it works in Nigeria. This could be some one with a need for publicity. It may never happen.

    Look at the airport. It is suppose to be opened 4 months ago.

    we are not interested in shoping mall. The government has highjacked every sphere of business in delta state leaving the populace at their mercy. Every where in asaba is so idle because nothin is happenin. Who are those that will take charge of the shoping malls is it not the government. who are those that will work at the shopping mall is it not them. Let them build their shopping mall but let the stop chassing innocent citizens around. They should allow us to do our business while they do theirs.

    Information about chief Dennis Osadebe says that he was born to parents of mixed cultural background. Also, I cannot help but notice that his middle name Chukudebe is spelled without a “w”. Does anyone know the birth place of chief Osadebe’s Mother. I point out the different way of spelling the middle name because that may provide a clue to the use of the phrase “parents of mixed cultural background”. Maybe Asaba.com can get in touch with one of the family members to get this information.
