‘It Cost ₦25.9 Million To Put Nigerian Colours On Burj Khalifa’

The display of the green-white Nigerian colours on the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), to mark Nigeria’s 60th Independence Anniversary may not be a gesture of goodwill after all.

Many Nigerians Thursday gushed endlessly on seeing the 828 metre-tall edifice turn green and white and assumed it was UAE’s way of identifying with the West African nation who has turned its Middle Eastern counterpart to a Mecca of sorts.

UAE’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Fahad Al Taffaq shared a video of the spectacle while congratulating Nigeria on Thursday.

“Happy 60th Independence Day #Nigeria!

“Congratulations to the leadership, government and good people of Nigeria on this occasion.

“Nigeria’s Flag was featured today on #BurjKhalifa to celebrate our growing relations,” Taffaq wrote.

However, it has emerged that it cost 250,000 Emirate Dirham (approximately N25.6 million) to put up.

Lead Partner at SBM Intelligence, Mr. Cheta Nwanze, who tweets from @Chxta, claimed this in a tweet on Friday.

He wrote, “Woke up to see cretins in my mentions about Burj Khalifa.

“Newsflash: #Dubai didn’t do that shit because they love #Nigeria.

*Someone blew ₦25.9M on that stunt. Food inflation at 16% but you’re blowing money on trips. Biko let me go for my exercise. This 19° won’t go to waste.”

Nwanze further shared information about advert rates for displays on the Burj Khalifa.
