Ado Bayero Mall - Kano

Just when you're hoping they're finally fixing the roads or improving transport networks, they go and plan yet another shopping mall.

However, contrary to what you might interpret as being a complaint from me, is in fact just me marvelling at the fact that at least they are constructing and investing in architecture, be it for economical purposes (what other reasons would they invest).

Kano state has been building a mall called Ado Bayero Mall, and here are some pictures, its design is actually quite attractive (in my opinion).

Construction began in 2011.
