It is you who don't know what you're saying.
I'm terms of contribution to the economy, that oil and gas you people keep talking about, over 70% of it pass through Rivers ports to bring in dollars and revenue for Nigeria.
Lagos ports cannot boast of 70% contribution to Nigeria's revenue

You see how you got F9? Is Rivers port a creation of Rivers state government? Is the crude oil in rivers a creation of the Rivers state government?

I specifically mentioned what Rivers state government since 1999 achieved and you’re talking about ports.

Now if we are to now count head to head for all infrastructure whether FG/State, will Rivers be able to measure?

What is the total revenue from port service in Rivers state compared to Lagos?

What is the contribution of Rivers oil to the GDP of Nigeria itself compared to Lagos?

Where is Rivers version of state/private sponsored seaport and how much investment have Rivers attracted in the magnitude of Lekki FTZ?

Where is Rivers version of Eko Atlantic? Where is Rivers version of Lagos light rail which is by far what most sub-national in Africa can afford?

What is the total FDI that River state bring compare to Lagos?

Which government agency in Rivers is as robust as LAMATA and even the usual Lagos RRS formation?

Bro nothing spectacular in Rivers that can make it go head to head with Lagos when you speak about Government impact.

Rivers state is under a curse

Let Rivers state especially the ikweres return does houses dey seize from the Igbos after the Biafra war.

Look Lagos and Kano dey return does property dat belongs to the Igbos immediately after the war.Some indigenes even kept the rentage of such houses,after the war handed it to the Igbos when dey return back to dose states

Rivers indigenes especially the so called ikweres landlord dat don't know how block is been moulded should ask of forgiveness.

If not this is how dey will continue fighting Dem selves.

It's instigated because of crude oyel in the state. Divide and conquer and rule policy of Nigeria did not start in 1999 in the old Eastern region. It started way back in 1967 with creation of Rivers and Cross River States out of the old Eastern region.
After the creation of the two states, Northern military Generals and politicians seized all the multi billion Dollar oil Wells in the region.

Bro nothing spectacular in Rivers that can mLake it go head to head with Lagos when you speak about Government impact.
Rivers crude oil is its natural resource and not a creation of any govt. If rivers was in a sane country where they are free to control their resources, it will easily be the richest state in Nigeria as it was in the colonial Times.
Rivers gives Nigeria over 60% of its revenue. As a matter of fact, Lagos is known for imports. The and imports that's claimed to be killing the naira while Onne is exclusively for oil exports that brings in forex that strengthens our reserves. Most of the FDI that comes into Lagos is still oil and gas based and the oil is in Rivers not Lagos. For example, if Mobil open a new oilfield, on their books, it will be termed FDI against their headquarters in Lagos.
Eko Atlantic, Lekki seaport are private investments. They have nothing to do with the state. Onne port is a free trade zone like Lekki and does far more volume than it.
Lagos rail took 24 years and uncountable loans to achieve. PH rail is still ongoing as well. So there's nothing in rail to make Lagos better than PH.
LAMATA is simply a state transport service. What does it matter that it's called LAMATA? What value does that add to anything?

You are just saying nonsense. Most FDI that comes into Lagos is not Oil and gas based. Infact, overall wise, Oil and Gas usually constitute the lowest capital importation into Nigeria compared to Banking and general production. Before you talk to me, always have your facts.

Below is the share of sector and the capital imports.


Eko Atlantic, Lekki seaport are private investments. They have nothing to do with the state. Onne port is a free trade zone like Lekki and does far more volume than it.
They are public/private partnerships, you clearly don’t even know what you say. Lagos state hold 20% stake in the Lekki seaport. How can you compare that to Onne port that has no input of Rivers state government?

Even if the rail took 5000 years, what we have right now in Lagos is that they have the blue and red line rail, an infrastructure which Rivers can never boast of yet. LAMATA innovated the BRT system and the brainchild behind the LAGferry and rail. I mentioned them so you can understand how government creation function in Lagos compared to Rivers.

You have a penchant for straw man argument. The initial bone of contention was about Lagos and Rivers state government and what achievement they’ve been able to effect in their states for 24 years period.

It will take someone suffering from chronic delusion to ever say Lagos governors haven’t performed far far far spectacularly well than Rivers governor when you talk about the mega projects and investments they’ve brought to their states.

It will take someone suffering from chronic delusion to ever say Lagos governors haven’t performed far far far spectacularly well than Rivers governor when you talk about the mega projects and investments they’ve brought to their states.

If you were a good student of history you will know Opobo, Bonny and Brass traded oil palm and kernel with Europe in pre-colonial and colonial times. Google Jaja of Opobo. Even during colonial times, the region known today as the South South was the richest part of the country contributing the most to revenue. Google and confirm.

Again, you have shown your poor knowledge. Capital importation is not FDI. If MTN takes a loan from Citibank in SA, that will be counted as Capital importation. If a services firm takes a loan from a UK bank, it will be recorded as capital importation as well. FDI is different. It is not just capital but more importantly, the foreign stockholding and investments in local businesses ,as it implies that generates value for the country.

Lagos state owns just 10% of Lekki ports and its investment is not monetary but is the land asset there. Onne port that I'm referring to is the largest export terminal in Nigeria. You know what that means? Close Onne today and your FG will collapse. Even your Tinubu has shares in Onne. But it is not just about the port. It is about the fact that the oil and gas activities that makes the port very viable comes from Rivers land. That is what I am telling you when I say in terms of contribution to the economy, Lagos has nothing over Rivers. Instead, it is even Rivers that is feeding Lagos. If all the money from that oil was left to Rivers alone, the state will be much more richer and more developed than Lagos. As a matter of fact, Lagos benefits from all the economic activities in other parts of the country as its ports are used for imports by other parts of the country. This same situation is what led to Lagos paying royalties to the North during colonial times after it was proven that part of Lagos riches came from northern exports of cotton at Lagos ports and imports that are north bound.

So in terms of economy of Nigeria, Lagos does not have any contribution that exceeds that of Rivers moreso when Lagos is an importing economy while Rivers is an exporting economy
