City 90% Built By Private Individuals And 10% Built By State Govt Looks Like(pic

36

Barreling through onitsha, one would wonder if there is a federal govt footprint in the city. Aside the niger bridge and mausoleum, the answer is a resounding “no”. This has lead the city to be a law on her own and not always adhering to federal govt issued Muslim holidays because of its predominantly Christian population. Barely 60yrs after a devastating war that brought the desolation and destruction of the city, the city was quickly built up by individuals with barely any support from the state. Not until the govt of Peter obi did the city learn of what “government” entails. From paving of new roads to adding new streets/traffic lights to new building laws and establishing of industrial estates etc .. the city seems to have adapted very well. Way forward: successive state governors in anambra should stop waiting on FG to throw their support in the city development. New laws should allow for building more than 7 story buildings
