Oko_AGB:

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 do you mean by LGA's? Is ikeja not suppose to be the city of lagos? Everyother area is an LGA that is now pratically incorporated in the city.

Once again, traffic is a major issue in every populated city, i don't remember lagosians jumping for joy whenever the first couple is in town and major roads are blocked..or the infamous floods that shur down that city and caused the government to declare a public holiday..

Port harcourt was never meant to be the capital of nigeria. It was a retreat for the british in nigeria. It was like a little paradise called the garden city. The founding of oil and other commercial prospects blew up the city unless before port harcourt officially was from borokiri to utc at nnamdi azikiwe road. Diobu down are ikwerre villages.

a farm? A farm with residential area, recreational area, research institute,offices, a facility that streaches hecters of land where even expatraits live. Yeah, it's very convinent to call it as farm to trivialize it in the eyes of those who have'nt seen it. I'm not tired of replying. Goodluck.

Bros please stop joking, Port Harcourt cannot be the same size as Lagos which is expanding into Ogun State.

Its easy to calculate. The distance from Mbiama to Akwa-ibom is already bigger than Lagos not to talk of from Bonny to Abia boundary. Unless he meant Lagos Island and Port-Harcourt city.

Port Harcourt City before now have just one and half LGA. That is PHALGA and some part of Obio/AKpor. But, since ten years ago it has added 2 more local government namely Eleme and Ikwerre LGA. That said, people confuse old Port Harcourt township that is refer to as 'Garden City' with the present day Port Harcourt.
The military government did not help matter to give this present day Port Harcourt that plan we all dream of. People were buying land and building houses indiscriminating. And thus alter the initial design of the city. That is why it was difficult for the present day government to develop without demolishing. No wonder the govt came with a mega city called Greater Port Harcourt. If you visit the new city you will notice internal roads been constructed and some trunck A roads such as Prof. Tam West road and M10 road in progress, with M1 road to link the old township with the new city coming this december. Havin said these, mistakes of our fore fathers can be corrected if we all work together.

Symphony007:
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

This are the tallest building in Nigeria. try get good information.

Symphony007:
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.

Fear God plss!, even won't compare PH to Lag. I spent a decade in PH and PH, it black soot, uncultured and hopeless proud and illiterate people don't come near Lag for a minute, not even Ogun state. Rubbish!

Is it government structures that make a City great or better. undecided
Going by your description , Rivers is not near the share class of Lagos...those things already point to "Administrative bottleneck" ...they are more interested in having the best Government house , instead of building social infrastructures to affect lives

A City that lacks a major road network of worth is what you are comparing to Lagos. A City that has more slumps than real urban planning
