IoIn our national life, many people just want to make it. Make money witiohout being ready for the work, commitment, patient ,perseverance etc, that it takes to get wealth. They want it in a jiffy. Overnight or now now wealth,

Some are not even interested in any legitimate means. They can go diabolic just to get wealth.

Politics is readily another means of making easy money. There was a popular terminology….”let’s share the cake”.

All what you need to do is “do or die” to get appointed or elected. And pronto! You’re swimming in money.

All these are changing with the new political reality on the ground. No more free money flowing anywhere.

We would now begin to see, building of long lasting structures for sustainable development.

This Marina sea port and the structure are above 100 years old which would have been preserve adequately to serve as a tourist site, moreover it’s close to the Palace of the Paramount Ruler of the city. The Obong of Calabar.
