Rivers State Secretariat Is The Tallest And Biggest In Nigeria. by Symphony007: 9:53pm On Jul 30, 2013
The rivers state government secretariat is the tallest and biggest government secretariat in the country apart from the federal secretariate in abuja. The rivers state secretariate complex is a cluster of about 6 nine storey building and the principal secretariat which is almost 20 storey high is the tallest building in the south south and south east of nigeria. The buildings beats out competition from rival lagos and kano. They are a highlight of the city and is located at it's heart besides the state government house, central bank, city council, house of assembly, high court..etc

Its only an 18 storey building and not a skyscraper. Once you drive into Abakaliki and turn left towards the township, the building stares you right at the face.

it is still taller with 20 storeys. 18 floors and a two storey exclusive penthouse. The building you speak of should be in competition with the federal secretariat on aba road in port harcourt.

Rivers State can comfortably be the federal capital of Nigeria.
Rivers State has the best governors/government house in West Africa. One of the best if not the best in Africa. Lagos dey learn. If not for federal and private enterprise, lagos no go see Rivers State back at all!

The Rivers State Secretariat is comrised of Block A, Block B, Block C and Podium Block. They are ten storey each. Some distance to them is another, the tallest, around Government House (Brick House). It is called Point Block, and is made up of three crescent-shaped blocks with their curves backing one another. On them are two open hands facing the sun.
The structures here, including the Ministry of Justice when you're entering through Superbod remind me of structures in the first generation universities in Lagos, Ife, Ibadan and Zaria. They're of high quality.
Township where the Secretariat Complex is located is the place I love most in Port-Harcourt. In fact this is the real capital of Rivers State. Notable places, structures, schools and roads here include: Radio Rivers in Degema Street, Nigerian Prisons, Civic Centre Comlex, State High Court, Federal High Court, Bernard Carr Street, Aggrey Road, Creek Road, I.B. Johnson, Police Headquarters, Mosco Road, Bank Road, Nnamdi Azikiwe Road, House of Assembly Complex, Baptist High School, Loco Market, Gbundu, Enitonia High School, GGSS, Habour Road, Holy Rosary Girls School, Comprehensive Secondary School, Stella Maris College, Government Secondary School, Borokiri; Tourist Beach, Zoo, NPA, and so on.

Federal Secretariat, Port-Harcourt, beside Military Cemetry can't stand Rivers State Secretariat Complex.

A city where scores of companies ve yards in d middle of d city, with heavy vehicles criss-crossing d whole length and breadth of d city on a daily basis. Horns and sirens blaring indiscriminately and everything and everywhere seemingly taking its course from Aba road btw eleme and borokiri. Shut down aba road and ph comes to an abrupt halt because before u say jack, all d smaller alternative routes get gridlocked wit traffic. PH is a compact city sir.

where did this aba road trash come from. I have been hearing it a lot from nairaland and i will not let it become a standard. Have you heard of ikwerre road, airforce road, stadium road, peter odili road and many others. And what makes port harcourt any different from any major city in the world where there is traffic? Plus whenever a v.i.p is in port harcourt, the entire length of aba road leading to the airforce base is shut and the city still moves, so your premise is utterly flase.

I hope you know we are talking abt PH metropolis and not other LGAs. In otherwords just phcity and some parts of obiakpor.

On d v.I.p point, why were resisdents screaming blue murder dat d city was locked down wen PEG visited recently? Dats cos d security on aba road was beefed up and d town shut down

I still maintain dat d city is too compact to serve as a capital city for Nigeria

What is dis one saying?

Ogoni is a tribe, and Tai is a LGA in ogoniland. Although Tai is d closest LGA in ogoniland to PH, u ve to pass tru eleme LGA to get to tai. Eleme is not a city, talk more of tai. Sakpenwa d capital of Tai is a village. Only notable tins there are d police baracks, scretariate and d huge model college along d east west road.

If u know where Aba is, u won't even say ph is close to it.

Ph, too dirty and compact as of now. Simple

and apparently you don't know that lagos is a collection of local governments. The capital is just ikeja. And who told you tai is not developed? Have you ever been there? Have you heard of shongai in tai? Have you been to ahoada which is more developed than places like mushin in lagos. You have not been to eneka or choba? And when the bonny-bodo road is complete.

Plus, what do you mean by port harcourt is dirty? You have no basis for that assumption. Port harcourt despite it's growing population has managed to keep it's sanity. There are no slums like makoko or ajegunle. Port harcourt population is tripple the size of abia but aba is offensivelt dirty and ph is not. Make fact based arguements.
