Weekend Pictures - Out and About Asaba

Posted in: , ,
I have left Asaba and don't know when I will be back. But the memories continue...

The state secretariat annex

New CBN office on Marryam Babangida Way

State house of Assembly

Elders deliberating in front of the House of Assembly. Wish the members were as honorable as their names

Campaign headquaters for PDP and the Jonathan-Sambo ticket

Nnebisi Road - Asaba High street if you will...

Not sure who, statue at junction of old Anwai road

Police doing their usual

Delta State university, Anwai

Palm Plantation and Press for the school's Agric Econs Faculty. There was no one there or I would have bought some palm oil for my stock. :)

A fast food place, no ad but I got good ice cream there.

A church on summit road, isn't it interesting how they're taking over all factory and warehouse looking buildings around?

Ogbogonogo Mordern Market - Very busy indeed. That water tank in the background was our marker when we lived in Enugu and visited Asaba at Christmas that we had arrived.

A statue of the Omu (Women's Leader and voice), I think

St Josephs Catholic Church Asaba, over 100 years old

Grand Hotel Asaba

Makossa Dancers at the Live Band Stage of the Jetty Bar

Christmas Tree in front of the Hospital

Free Viewing of Cable TV - seen in three different spots. Seems to have caught on especially for football matches.
