Yet it receives zero attention from the federal gov't to assist it with its challenges!

If Onitsha could get just 50% of the funds and attention the federal gov't pumped into Lagos and Abuja, it would go a long way in helping to make it one of the best cities in Africa!

That's why they panicked and forced GEJs hand to get rid of Festus Odumegwu. Besides the fact that they sized up the man, and he looked like the stubborn type that couldn't be influenced or bought....that his name would have given them nightmares as well! lipsrsealed

Onitsha has more privately owned high-raising residential building than Lagos.

You might break your neck before you see a privately owned three storey residential apartments in Lagos.

Thank you Peter Obi for making Onitsha great.
