Calabar as I met it
In the year 1999, Nigeria finally got their electioneering the closest to “right.” The military returned to their barracks, and we had a democratic government. I was apprehensive. It was so bad I didn’t really care. Then Strabag, the construction company, rolled their equipment into the streets of Calabar, making roads which even cyclists refuse to ply become thorough way. Electricity project kicked off – before then only Calabar had access to NEPA. Borehole Water businesses started to pack up as water projects started.
And I started to pay attention…I did!!!
I know because I lived in Calabar at the time of @DonaldDuke as Governor of Cross River State 1999-2007.
