There are few signs of revival in Kano, though it is nearly as big as Lagos. “Shoprite OPENING SOON” is splashed on a red-and-orange sign where the Ado Bayero Mall, the norths first modern shopping centre, is going up. It has been a long wait: Shoprite, a South African food distributor, has been operating in Lagos since 2005.

尽管卡诺和拉各斯面积差不多,卡诺却很少有复兴的苗头。红橙相间的“Shoprite即将开业”字样喷在Ado Bayero购物中心,这是北方的第一个现代购物中心,正逐渐恢复过来。这是一个漫长的等待:Shoprite作为南非最大的食品经销商,早在05年就进驻拉各斯运营。

 

Kanos state governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has poured millions into infrastructure. Taxis weave through huge concrete columns that will eventually support a flyover. But while three-lane highways are being built, feeder roads from rural communities remain decrepit. A multimillion-dollar development, the Mega Five Projects, will have three posh housing estates and two transport terminals.

卡诺的州长Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso投入了上百万用于基础设施。巨大的水泥柱下出租车往来穿梭,而上面将支撑起一座立交桥。但是正当三条高速公路建设时,通往农村社区的支路却还是残破不堪。投资百万美元的5个大型项目将建成3个豪华住宅区和2个运输站。

 

Such projects make little sense when many northerners, struggling to make a living, are deciding to leave Kano in search of better prospects—down south. “It is the only logical way for the government,” says the owner of a big construction company. “Visible development gives the impression of stability and progress.” But it will not be enough to close the gulf between Nigerias two halves. As a result, northerners are increasingly resentful.

努力谋生的北方人民决定离开卡诺寻找更好的出路---南下,这项工程就没有太大的意义了。一个大型建筑公司的老板说道:“看得到的发展才会让人觉得稳定和进步,这才是政府该有的逻辑思维。”但是,尼日利亚南北方的鸿沟一时还无法消除。因此,北方人民怨恨情绪日益高长。
