That's Dividend of Democracy.

Even Garri that used to be cheaper than street light, the poor can't even eat again!!

Tinubu even got elected before Otti oooo yet Nigerians both young and old, yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa are all crying

When light comes, darkness disappears.

All the tribalists (from the north, east west or south) coming here to turn this thread to a tribal war, may your light never ever shine. Can I hear a loud amen brethren?

That particular road was recently constructed and they installed street lights at once there.

Moreso, the people jubilating were aged women.

Aba had street lights before now. Even Useless Ikpeazu fixed some around Aba Owerri road when I visited a friend. But that moment, your favorite does something, you celebrate it because you're reaping fruit of your action and decision.

It's a SE thing generally. I use to hear how bad it was. It is rumoured that Theordore was the worst person to ever rule Abia state, and at some point, Nairalanders were even comparing Theordore Orji (Abia) to Peter Obi (Anambra) to see who was worse.

MrGlobe back then was the equivalent of our present day Racoon.

The only backward one here is you that parades all over nairaland using a Igbo moniker when you’re actually a Igbo-hating bigot! Why are you ashamed of carrying on your hate and trolling using your real ethnic identity!?

On topic: I’m happy for Ndi-Abia! I will rejoice with them over this had i been there! The symbolism of having streetlights on their street for the first time goes much deeper than just celebrating streetlights….it shows gov’t is being felt in their lives and means well for the masses for the first time possibly since 1999!
