The Pattern of Communications in Eastern Nigeria

  • Barry Floyd

Abstract

THE canoe, motor vessel, railway engine and lorry have successively and together played a major role in the economic development of Eastern Nigeria. Each still has their part to play although it is the road transport system which is expanding most rapidly and has become the most significant component of the ‘geography of circulation’ in the Eastern Provinces. The newest addition to the communications network is the Nigerian Airways Corporation, although a fuller contribution to the movement of both people and freight by air transport still lies some distance in the future.
