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


Hush... Eleme is also in Ogoni.

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.
This is rubbish! P.H is three times the population of Abia? Are you alright?? P.H population is just slightly bigger than Aba but Aba is far better planned than P.H. Owerri is more beautiful than P.H, the city is overated & has remained stunted!!

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.
u wont blame them aba rd is the only place they knw.

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!

Una no go kill person! In 2005/2006, when I was serving in imo, rivers was an eyesore, compared to whats obtainable now(I was there 2016 n was amazed by d change)!

Aba road is the only major road in the city where most activities take place. Ikwere rd, stadium rd etc are just feeder roads.

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.
True but to correct part: Blocks A,B and C are 7 stories each, Podium block is 10 while point block is 17.

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.

Federal Secretariat is 10 storey building

PH witout good road network, mostly dependent on individual household borehole for water supply, and a very compact city. Only in ur dreams can PH be d capital of Nigeria

What a "dividend of democracy"!
Nigerians are largely dumb and ignorant, they only get agitated when tribal, religious, political and class sentiments are whipped.

A Riverian will stupidly feel good now that his/her state secretariat is the tallest without questioning what is being produced in that office that benefits his/her life.

If y'all don't start thinking logically and objectively, no messiah will be able to solve your problems. The change has to come within.
Re: Rivers State Secretariat Is The Tallest And Biggest In Nigeria. by opuada331(m): 5:28pm On Dec 07


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.
my dear do you think aba road is the only major road in Ph city? We have Ikwere road and we have woji Akpajo road were you can use to go out and in of ph city... It's obvious you haven't been anywhere in portharcourt stop misinforming people here

You're obviously a dundee of the first order. Go back to primary school & learn how to read & comprehend. Aba is far more planned than your grossly overated P.H. There is a difference between city planning and refuse management! P.H is a disgrace & disappointment, a stunted city that has refused to grow despite being the centre of the oil industry. I hate it when dull and unintelligent people quote me because I'm alergic to re.tar.ds!
