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.
Oga, biko, what is the difference between an 18-storey building and a skyscrapper

Wetin come concern you?


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.

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

pH dirty, then go back to your state Abia.

Lovely. Only if this type of structures are everywhere then people wouldn't be flying out of the country anyhow. Even musicians would love to shoot their videos in this kind of environment. I hope these big eye politicians will not steal it and go and hide it in America cheesy grin grin

Maybe you can start by telling us what a skyscraper is and how many storey buildings make a skyscraper.

For your information, there is on;y one skyscraper in the whole of Nigeria.

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

Most beautiful

The governor that built it said the contractor made a mistake. The open hand are supposed to have the map of the state in between it. It is a nice building sha..


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.
