The capital of the relatively new state of Nassarawa does not live up to the standard of its other northern neighbours, but it boasts of an equally serene outlook, but with far less livestock around town.
The road from Abuja to Akwanga, I dare say, is one of the best roads in Nigeria. Surely it’s one of the best roads I’ve been on in the past two weeks, and I’ve been around. One other noticeable thing on the highway is the use of solar technology to power the street lights. This is an innovation that is long overdue in all of all the other states.
The road from Akwanga to Lafia however is one of the dangerous, definitely one of the longest winding roads I’ve been on. It is still undergoing dualization and it might get safer with expansion. It does boast of a good view of the hills and mountains though.
