Amalgamation House Neglected Despite Tourism Potential

The Amalgamation House is where the then governor of the Northern Protectorate and the Colony and Protectorate of Southern Nigeria, Lord Frederick Lugard.

The Amalgamation House is where the then governor of the Northern Protectorate and the Colony and Protectorate of Southern Nigeria, Lord Frederick Lugard, on January 1, 1914, signed a document merging the two entities into one.

The house, which was the administrative headquarters of Lord Lugard, is located in Ikot Abasi, Akwa Ibom State and is a few minutes walk from the local government secretariat.

It is situated in the midst of what was then the colonial seat of government and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It also served as the business headquarters of the government and could be likened to the Aso Rock of today.

However, relics of the colonial government, such as the administrative office of Lord Lugard, his residential quarters, the bridge of no return, the slave house, the John Miller house and the colonial bank have been allowed to deteriorate in a manner that would make tourism lovers weep

You revert national anthem to the colonial version and still wants to keep relics of how British destroyed Nigeria? Demolish this reminder of slavery and colonialism fast.
