Anambra needs new think-home verve – Prof. Pat Utomi



I AM pleased to see the progress that has been made in Anambra. I am one who has been very critical of the governors of the South-East for a very long time.

I think development needs to move out of Lagos. Lagos is now responsible for more than 70 per cent of Nigeria’s economy and a good part of those who make that happen come from the South-East and if the governors won’t create an enabling environment for them to create back home what they are building elsewhere, something is wrong.
