Ameachi is the Fashola of the east but his work is going unrecognized. He's turning Rivers State into a developed country of it's own. He may be doing more then Fashola even.

You are absolutely right. I believe that with the way Amaechi is going, Lagos State will need to watch her back, if she wants to maintain it's position as the largest economy in Nigeria. Amaechi just gets on with the work, he does not engae in P.R

its unlikely he'll ever be president with Good Luck now being sworn in.

ppl will see it as the Niger Delta or easterners ruling twice in a row, and it's unlikely this will be allowed though it seems they're producing a lot of talent

i'd love to see this type of drive and vision in the leadership of Imo State, which isn't bad but isn't great the way nigeria needs.

anyways, i believe development in the country will be gradual and uneven state by state by nature of the country's composition and government type.
i plan on living in Port Harcourt when im older and doing business there, Lagos and Calabar.

wow. Amaechi has been quietly working. I hope they catch up to the amount of non-oil foreign investment that Lagos gets. It will be very good for Nigeria to have to major coastal cities, to help reduce congestion in one city. I was reading that the FG may privatize the distribution power companies for Lagos and Rivers, so hopefully that will help Rivers state in their power ambitions. It seems that they are actually ahead of Lagos in terms of delivering on power despite the bottlenecks of the FG.

Any proof whatsoever?

I doubt the change in Rivers can really match Lagos's

I think what he was driving at is that if Rivers State continues to try to reposition itself, it may begin to start seeing the type of multi-million and billion dollar investment that Lagos is getting. Since its the oil capital it has the potential to attract investments that will bring oil executives back to Rivers (as long as they can maintain peace in the region).

PH will never be has big and influencial as lagos. its position geographically makes it useless because you would have to pass lagos' port to reach port if it's us, south american, west african, and european trade, which is pointless.

i suppose trade with asia will boost the port but i think even the prefer the lagos port.
Oil is keeping the city alive but Lagos has a natural advantage in everything port has. not saying the city isn't bound to be great.

I respectively disagree with your argument. Port Harcourt like other cities have their strengths and weaknesses. Port Harcourt will like to play to their strengths and attract investments. This is the pursuit for every State Governor. Gone are the days when provision for the state citizens were borne by the Govt. only. Partnership with the private sector is the new buzz word. I will tend to commend any state which embraces the zeal to progress. No question of useless states. Every state has something to give.
