Tie...made from Ankara

flip-flop and Hand-made Sandal

Picked up these items from a road-side shop, when I visited Aba,the commercial nerve centre of Eastern Nigeria and the home to Enyimba Football club,two time Confederation of African Champion's Leagues winner.I was marvelled by the rugged ingenuity,industry,hardwork,dedication and ruthlessness that the typical Aba man exudes.I was very impressed and proud of the indigenous industrialist who litters all nooks and crannies of the city-from Shirts and Suits makers at Cameroun Road,to Shoe,sandals and Belt makers at Powerline/Bakassi area on Faulks road to the desperate traders at Ariara International Market who are ready to deploy all tricks they know just to convince you to buy from them,even when you don't need such items.
I just wish the Nigerian government will give all the necessary financial and technical support to transform the business face of Aba.
