ECONOMIC LEGACY- PART 2 BY OKAZU POWER

ECONOMIC LEGACY- PART 2
Nnamdi Azikiwe was the foremost Political Leader of The Defunct Eastern Region comprising of 90% of The present South-South and South-East. There were lots of Economic Activities before Zik's Time but I would like to stick to his "ECONOMIC LEGACY".
He was A Nationalist but He never ever took his Heart of "Ulo Nna"
In the 1960s, the government promoted rubber, cocoa and palm grove schemes to increase the output of cash crops. The government also established farm settlements at Ohaji, Igbariam, Boki, Ulonna, Erei, Uzo-Uwani and Egbema to encourage agriculture.
Trading of goods was also a major part of the regional economy. In 1954, imports to the region was about 25 million pounds a year which were brought into the country by a few European firms but distributed by thousands of traders within the region.[23]The trade in imported goods such as dried fish, motor parts, textiles goes on along with the trade in local foodstuff.
In industry, the coal mines of Enugu managed by the Nigerian Coal Corporation and Nigersteel's rolling mill which used steel scraps to produce mild steel bars were one of the few coal mines and steel plants in operation in West Africa in 1963.
During the NCNC led government Which Zik was also a National Leader, a cement factory was established at Nkalagu for The Nigeria Cement Factory(NigerCem), Nigerian Breweries chose a stout factory at Aba, A Tobacco and glass making plant was located at Port Harcourt. Oil mining in the region started by Shell D' Archy in 1937 did not yield commercial quantities until 1957. But by 1965, oil was a promising source of income.
The task of managing the trade and income earned in palm oil kernels was given to the Eastern Nigeria Marketing Board and the Eastern Nigeria Finance Corporation. These Two boards later metamorphosed into A sort of Economic Council that managed the whole Economic Activities in the Region.
Outside His Legacy in Education and Other Fields, Nnamdi Azikiwe did His very best in leaving an Economic Legacy for his people. These Industries and Investments would have withstood the Test of Time and Generated Revenue for Our Ever Busy Doing Nothing Governors who only wait for the Call of Life..
"Come over to Abuja for your cheques"
However,All of Zik's Economic Legacy was destroyed During The Civil War from 1967-1970. Everything went down with it
The Owelle of Onitsha, THE ZIK OF AFRICA made sure The Eastern Region stood shoulder to shoulder on Every other Region Economically..
