Nigerian Investor Proposes African-themed Hotel At Willoughby Bay


Cabinet Notes: An African-themed resort is contemplated, very likely at Willoughby Bay; five such resorts have been built by the investor in Nigeria and Ethiopia, and they attract well-off Nigerians and others.


The Chairman of Cabinet sought to connect the investor to the head of the Peace Airline; the carrier has received permission from the Antiguan authorities to fly seven hours directly across the Atlantic Ocean from Nigeria to Antigua. The Cabinet listened with interest and examined the material provided by the investors’ lawyer.


The members are persuaded that the opportunity is ripe for investments from Africa’s most populous state that is a provider of petroleum to countries of Europe and the USA.

    • Racism is a serious issue still in 2020…
      No Chinese because they’re Chinese.
      No Nigerian because he’s B***k.
      I bet you support UPP.

    • Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! “As I begin to recognise that the Negro is the symbol of sin, I catch myself hating the Negro. But then I recognise that I am a Negro. There are two ways out of this conflict. Either I ask others to pay no attention to my skin, or else I want them to be aware of it. I try then to find value for what is bad–since I have unthinkingly conceded that the black man is the colour of evil. In order to terminate this neurotic situation, in which I am compelled to choose an unhealthy, conflictual solution, fed on fantasies, hostile, inhuman in short, I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me, to reject the two terms that are equally unacceptable, and through one human being, to reach out for the universal. When the Negro dives–in other words, goes under–something remarkable occurs.” ― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks!

      In this the International Decade For People of African Descent 2015 – 2024, all 93,000 souls of African Descent resident on Antigua and Barbuda possess DNA that is a minimum 25% Nigerian! “Afrocentricity is a paradigm based on the idea that African people should reassert a sense of agency in order to achieve sanity.” – Dr. Molefi Asante, Afrocentricity, The Theory of Social Change!

      According to the UN data, Nigeria’s 2020 population is estimated at 206,139,589 people, the most populous Nation in Africa, is equivalent to 2.64% of the world population and Nigeria ranks number 7 in the list of countries by population! Nigeria has 5 Billionaires one of whom is a woman and Africa’s richest Industrialist and Philanthropist worth $14.4 Billion USD with companies throughout the continent! De Vendors at the Amofah Market at Da Bridge say Pay Attention! As of 2018: “The AfrAsia Bank Wealth report of 2018 cited that 71,000 millionaires (that is 76% of Antigua and Barbuda’s Population of People of African descent all of whom carry the Nigerian DNA, more so that of the Edo People from the ancient Benin Empire) are living in Nigeria, each with a net worth of USD 10 Million or more. The report also revealed that country has 320 centi-millionaires, each of who have net assets worth USD 100 Million. // The Nigerian millionaires, according to these reports, will likely earn more dollar bills in the coming years. Thanks to the ease of doing business, hard work and the unrelenting resolve of Africans!” “The Afrocentric paradigm is a revolutionary shift in thinking proposed as a constructural adjustment to black disorientation, dislocation, decenteredness, and lack of agency.” – Asante!

      Clearly some, due to a neglected colonial education, have neither the grounding in Geography nor Historical Referent Points in Time and Space! To quibble with a 7 hour flight over the Middle Passage for people of “high net worth” shows how well many have been damaged by enslavement! Closer to home is the African American Population which has a purchasing power that is the 7th largest in the World, bigger than Canada, yet no SIDS in the English speaking Caribbean has targeted that market for their Tourism, Hospitality and Yachting Sector! Why don’t they! That Sector is dominated by North Atlantic Privateers who have been well schooled in Western Civilization! “The Negro enslaved by his inferiority, the white man enslaved by his superiority alike behave in accordance with a neurotic orientation.” ― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks!

      Friends, Country WoMen, Rastas, leave The naysayers, ‘Supercilious sad-sack Sophisticates” and “Purveyors of Puritan and Pentecostal Privateerism,” who, as mi gud fren “From the Sidelines” laments have shown no creativity of thinking “outside the box.” “Come, then, comrades; it would be as well to decide at once to change our ways. We must shake off the heavy darkness in which we were plunged, and leave it behind. The new day which is already at hand must find us firm, prudent and resolute.” – Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of The Earth!

      Two Years ago, four brave, phenomenal, young Antigua and Barbuda Women of African Descent, rowed their way across the Middle Passage into the Historical Annals. Not only was this an amazing feat of mental acuity, physical prowess, navigational skills and dexterity, in the words of the four intrepid individuals, it was “spiritual” as they felt the presence of the ancestors on the perilous journey! What has been the effect on the National Psyche and our Cultural and Psychological location! Most Journeys to Africa, Asia, Oceania and Europe are coordinated along Northern Longitudes! With modern technology Latitudinal travel is becoming the order of the day as being more efficient and effective!

      Will the Silk Road be extended along the Northern Equatorial Latitudes! This mere voice in the wilderness has been urging GoAB to abandon its Maghreb Mission and to set its Vision towards the AU at Addis using “Sheba Miles” to extend LIAT’s Alliance and Infrastructure! It would appear that GoAB would prefer to fly the friendly Caribbean Skies from its Hub at VCBIA in harmony with “Peace” and its Southern Neighbours! With The Good Hon. PM, “there are no coincidences!” “For ourselves and for humanity, comrades, we must turn over a new leaf, we must work out new concepts, and try to set afoot a new man.” – Fanon!

      The PM has embarked upon an ambitious Strategic Imperative to achieve a Value Proposition aimed at Social, Environmental and Financial Sustainability! Not being as Risk Averse as many of his contemporaries, he is embarking on a Strategy where he sees that both horizontal and vertical integration can be successful, not only for Tourism and Hospitality but also the Transportation Sector! It’s a Bold and Daring Move that only one as fearless as PM Browne would undertake! The Die is being cast! It would be helpful to show the People of African Descent how such leverage would not only improve the value chain but would lead to an improved triple bottom line in the two sectors National Sectors of Tourism/Hospitality and Transportation!

      “One of the key assumptions of the Afrocentrist is that all relationships are based on centers and margins and the distances from either the center or the margin. When black people view themselves as centered and central in their own history then they see themselves as agents, actors, and participants rather than as marginals on the periphery of political or economic experience. Using this paradigm, human beings have discovered that all phenomena are expressed in the fundamental categories of space and time. Furthermore, it is then understood that relationships develop and knowledge increases to the extent we are able to appreciate the issues of space and time.” – Asante!

  1. The Nigerians are no different than Chinese…they both do what’s BEST for them..Now ANTIGUANS & ANTIGUA will see more AFRICANS ARRIVING to take residence there as well cos where their monies go they go too…



    This is the issue

  3. Nigerians are welcome after all their ancestors blood sweat and tears help to build Antigua the earth is the lord’s and the fullest there of

  4. Do you really think Nigerians, living in Africa, will fly over 7 hours to get to Antigua, to vacation at a resort that reminds them of Africa, in numbers large enough to sustain a profitable resort, when there are 5 similar resorts already in Africa? I guess it’s the indigenous lions, elephants and giraffes that roam the plains of Bethesda that attracted these investors to Antigua… wonder what this is really all about?

  5. It’s about time. Mother Africa is to be welcomed. However, we cannot welcome scamps and conn artists, no matter what colour or country.

  6. Fact check all investors from Yida, Peter, Morris Bay, Barret, Robert D, and this African.

    Let them put a certain percentage in escrow that money will remain in escrow to pay severance when the time comes.

    The interest goes to the treasury or fund social programs closest to the project.

  7. Another failed experiment announced by the top dawg. Election gimmick. The last untouched lands up east is been cut up by the real estate company call ALP Realty.
    Antiguans wake up.

    • Ah shut up !! Funny i never heard you complaining when UPP cut up Frenches Cove for themselves and their minions..

  8. Google: Allan Onyema ,Chairman of Air Peace,Nigeria. Is this the proposed Investor? I would tell the Administration. Please do your background checks.Do not fall for sweet talk. That would results in sweet sounding nothings. There is an article dated,Friday,November 22,2020.Please read it to avoid an embarrassment.

  9. Cabinet again?????? Why is Cabinet vetting investors and investment projects? Isn’t this what ABIA is for? The last time Cabinet greenlighted projects we got e-books, Peter Verdee , R. A Stanford and all other assorted crooks looking to scam dotish third world small island politicians.
    Keep the politicians out of this.

  10. Hope the safari themed resort does not include any non native carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. God speed. Hopes it comes through fruition!

  11. Any Nigerian would have to proof him/herself to me before I can trust him/her. They have a worldwide reputation that cannot be overlooked. Sorry but that is just the fact. Same way I would look at Chinese. Due Diligence, Due Diligence, Due Diligence. You cannot have enough of that. They are just born swindlers. When you do find a good and honest one it is very rare. And believe me I have Nigerian friends and I have told them so in their face. You have many here in Antigua. If Nigerian shake my hands I’ll have to count my fingers to see if any is missing. And make sure you do not wear any jewellery. Even amongst other African Nations they are distrusted.
