Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, FFK, has given a reason why Rivers State needs to change the name of their capital from Port Harcourt.
The Rivers State capital was named after a British man named Lord Lewis Vernon Harcourt.
According to FFK, the man was a pedophile who doesn’t deserve to have a city named after him.
Lord Frederick Lugard and wife Flora Shaw gave Nigeria her name. The meaning of the word “NIGERIA” from the latin word “NIGER” (meaning “BLACK" is “BLACK AREA, AREA OF DARKNESS OR BLACK SPOT”. Most African nations changed their names after independence. Sadly Nigeria did not.
