Na lie.

Our Niger Delta petrodollars developed Lagos and Abuja just because its the federal capital then and now.

when did Nigeria discover Oil and when has Lagos being a developed port city and trade center

Olopobiri oil was discovered in 1956 and concenssioned to shell by eastern region government producing megre 5000 barrels per day

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Lagos

that's the list of development that existed in lagos before your yeye oil, they had schools, colleges, hospitals, bridges and electricity far before some primitive people even started wearing cloths

does this look like development.. or which Aba is O.P talking about?

Lagos has being far developed even before Nigeria saw its first drop of oil in 1956 and the money had always come in through trade and exports, from the slave trade to the cocoa days

A School in 1859 and a School in 2020 are two different things, in 1859 it showed superiority and class of Lagos ruling hierarchy like Oba kosoko, Oba Akintoye, Oba Dosunmu, it shows level of development and sophistication , while Aba in the 18 century women don't even wear cloths, they don't have schools

Anything Abuja is getting today is only a duplicate of what Lagos already has. Lagos as a result of its status inherited headquarters of federal govt ministries and parastatals, CBN, National Stadium, national airport, Banks Hqtrs, Hqs of oil companies, Hqtrs of many brands in Nigeria, Embassies and high commissions and many more.

but Aba women without such school knew what it meant to riot and resist colonialism more than the people whom the school was established.

Anyway, the school is a colonial legacy and doesn't fit into our discussion.
