Technological but unable to make test kits for covid-19. Or is mixing of alcohol and chemical to give hand sanitizer technological feat?

You don't know the meaning of development clearly.

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.

Aba women riot of yesterday lol we are talking of 18 century... CMS isn't colonial legacy its legacy of Christiandom in lagos and it was before the british battle.. and please stop shifting goal post.. Lagos is far far developed than the Aba onitcha or any eastern city way before oil of 1956 or Lord Lugard was even born

was CMS grammar school not white colonialists legacy? aren't you the one just shifting the goal post?

It is easy to say that Lagos was far developed before God created the world but I really want you to tell me how many national airports, Bank Hqtrs, Federal ministries and parastatals, Embassies federal housing estates, oil company Hqtrs, Hqtrs of multinationals that were in Lagos before it became the national capital as well as major institutions like university, research inatitutes CBN headqtrs, State house, and even major markts that were there before its political status.

Stop naming a secondary school, it neither makes a city nor livelihood.

Does the development you see there look like government projects?

Other regions depend on allocations, we depend on ourselves to develop.


Wow... interesting, pls enlighten us more about yourself dependence.

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

Hia.
Some parts of Lagos are dirtier than the places in the pics you posted. I am tired of people of people displaying stupidity. Every state in Nigeria has its clean and dirty areas. When I saw some slums in Lagos on TV, I nearly fainted. Those places cannot exist in Imo state. So please apply sense.

When the bigger, better and finer cities in the world are grieving over the pandemic despite their commercial and technology superiority.

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

Morufu the ewedu muslim olodo, 1858 was in the 19th century. The first black man to ever record his autobiography was Olaudah Ikwuano and he lived around 1750s which was the 18th century and wrote about his people's culture, tradition, Igbo market days etc.

During that period, your yoruba forebears were still killing themselves in Kiriji wars and selling their human body parts to the highest bidder. grin

Nothing.
My statement wasn't one of competition or bragging but one of setting the facts as far as the meaning of the term "development" is concerned. In a situation where lives are involved like this, o think it is a stup1d idea to make empty boasts or start chest-beating over the dead.

what do you benefit by mudslinging abia state? is your state better than abia state?

why are you so cowardly in representing your true state rather, you use a fake umuahia moniker? Ha vuru gi asu?

your state in the next 100 years can never be as Industrious as abia state.

Hahahahahaha we all know cocoa money made Ibadan what it is today, I'm sure you miscreants know this but decided to remove the plug to your brain.
The premier university(unibadan)
First TV station.
Cocoa House(tallest as at that time)
Liberty stadium
Now tell me where wasNnewi Aba and onitcha during this period?? Y'all are still living on the tree during that period

so where are those "firsts" now? how are they faring today?

with all your firsts, the Eastern region was still the fastest growing economy in the world (not even Africa) if you know your modern African history well.

take your ewedu firsts and get out of this thread.
