Dubai: A Pictorial Timeline of An Historic Transmogrification



Transformation showcases visible headway and nowhere else can it be felt more notably than in the beautiful city of Dubai. In the course of the last few decades, with its strong design, exciting horizons, super shopping centers, and cosmopolitan way of life, Dubai has transmogrified into a noteworthy traveler destination throughout the globe. In spite of the fact that the “city of the future” as referred to by many, has witnessed a massive change after the discovery of valuable crude resources in 1966, it has a rich legacy, regardless of the misguided judgments individuals may have.



The 1960s initiated the transformational change to what might end up modern-day Dubai, various spearheading activities, including the opening of Dubai Airplane terminal and the principal customary international service by Kuwait Aviation route the following year. The Dubai Council of Business and Industry propelled in 1965 pursued toward the decade's end by the Dubai Gold Market, perceived as the third biggest purchaser of gold on the open market at the time.




In any case, before we continue, here are some energizing certainties and misconceptions you should know from this course of events.

1. Dubai is not a country. Perception they say is a reality. In the developing world, Dubai is believed to be an independent nation like the US, UK, and Canada by a vast number of people. This is a misconception that has gotten a broad affirmation in provincial social orders across nations of the world. Dubai is one of seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. Situated south of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai is more famous than UAE just like the city of Port Harcourt is to Rivers state in Nigeria.

2. UAE being the sovereign established government is a league of seven emirates comprising of Abu Dhabi (which fills in as the capital), Ajman, Duba, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm Al Quwain.

3. Each emirate is administered by a ruler; together, they mutually structure the Federal Supreme Council. One of the rulers fills in as the President of the United Arab Emirates.

4. Dubai got autonomy on the 2nd of December, 1971.

5. Dubai is the most populous emirate while it is the second biggest topographical region after Abu Dhabi. In view of the census conducted in 2005, Dubai which beforehand has a growing population of marginally more than four million people currently has an index population of near 10 million individuals as at 2018.

6. Dubai has prevalently comprised of more than 8 diverse ethnic gatherings originated from outside nations like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, leaving just 20% of the population indigenous.

7. Islam remains the overwhelming religion of the UAE.

8. Arabic is as yet their official language while English is widely used.

9. UAE Dirham (AED) is the recognizable spendable currency in Dubai.

10. Finally, Dubai is undoubtedly one of the most present-day and cosmopolitan city on the planet. This evolutionary change could be traced to the discovery of crude oil in 1966.




You sure must have been thrilled by the elementary facts given above, yet regardless, GistaDom Naija is enthused about uncovering to you tonight some chronicled photos of Dubai before and after the boom. Try not to be in a rush as you would love to peruse this piece yet again.

Awesome.

Who wouldn't be proud to be part of such a developed society?

Isn't this wonderful? This is what we patriotic nigerians want for our country but those in the helm of affairs are setting bad presidence.

At least Lagos ought to be at the same level with Dubai.

Oil money is same anywhere.

By 1966, the British government had come to the conclusion that it could no longer afford to govern what is now the United Arab Emirates.[49] Much deliberation took place in the British parliament, with a number of MPs arguing that the Royal Navy would not be able to defend the Trucial Sheikhdoms. Denis Healey, who, at the time, was the UK Secretary of State for Defence, reported that the British Armed Forces were severely overextended, and in some respects, dangerously under-equipped to defend the Sheikhdom

It was the European and Americans that designed and developed everything in Dubai because the government of Dubai was ready to pay any amount for it development.

It was designed from scratch, a wasteland. At a time Nigeria was fighting it civil war. The same thing with Qatar. The Americans and Europeans are living there and owning up property we can't speak for the same with Nigeria, and which Americans called blessed land but failed people and leadership because of the northeners.

Just look where was are today.

Black skin = backwardness, stagnancy, corruption, looting, criminology, promiscuity, drug trafficking, Hiphop music and rascality, foolishness, selfishness, greed, materialism, and of course tribalism angry angry


If you doubt me, check all the black dominated countries and cities, no matter how rich in natural resources they are, they never advance economically, technologically or scientifically.....from Nigeria to Gabon to Equotorial Guinea, to Ghana, to, to Ivory Coast to Mali, to Kenya to Ethiopia, to Liberia, to Cameroon, to just name it....the only thing that saved South Africa is the white people from Netherlands that helped to build reliable infrastructure and put in place working leadership and government, if not, South Africa would have been as useless as Somali angry angry
