It is a city where people come to make a living. A home of various cultures.
A land flowing with milk and honey, a place of boundless treasures though plagued by challenges of diverse measures.
The place where I was born and the place where I grew up.

Port Harcourt is a place of multiple interest; political, economic, linguistic, educational.
A place of underground, undiscovered and buried potentials and talents.
beautiful buildings and roads but who lack humility and focus.
To me, Port Harcourt is a home for all, a town flowing with milk and honey in the form of oil and natural resources.
