Ibeno is blessed. If harnessed properly, it could compete with Zanzibar.

Nice, my grand father always participated in boats regatta in his life time in Rivers state. We still have his boats and paddles, which has his name inscribed on it.

It's so much fun to see colorfully designed boats all paddling away fiercely in a friendly competition.

Lol, the festival was contested by age groups, men, women, representatives of the PDP flagbearer...

As in, they were not part of the men, women and age groups? They came under the umbrella of "representatives of PDP..."?

I know you wanted to advertise the party, but next time, rearrange the write-up well, and include more pictures to show the colourfulness of the boat regatta festival

I did my NYSC in Ibeno, upenekang precisely. It's a nice place to be, the people are hospitable too.

My neighbors back then always bring fish for me and my colleagues. We are still friends. I will visit there again whenever things get better.
