Nigerian Flag

FOR 60 decades, most parts of the South-South geo-political zone have remained the geese that lay the proverbial golden egg. The zone accounts for over 80 per cent of Nigeria’s foreign revenues because of its oil and gas resources. In spite of this humongous contributions to the nation’s economic well-being, the South-South has continued to suffer infrastructural deficit.

East-West road to hell

The East-West road which connects the six states in the region and Lagos, the commercial hub of the country, has been in a deplorable mess for decades. A trip from Warri in Delta State, to Benin City, the capital of Edo State, all in the same South-South region that should ordinarily not exceed an hour drive, takes as much as four hours on a rainy day because of the deplorable state of the road. It is a similar story from Warri to Calabar, the capital of Cross River State.
