Whenever I read
ceertain articles or
watch adverts, movies
or even doccies, I've
noticed that S/South is
called the east.
Even in government or
commerce you find
that Port Harcourt
especially is referred to
as the Eastern Region
so certain companies
with branches in PH call
it the regional HQ for
the East. I was
watching an advert on
Nigerian tourism and it
was said that "Tinapa
is located in the state
of Cross River, Eastern
Nigeria"
I just want to know
why S/South and more
specifically the States
of Rivers, Cross river
and Akwa-Ibom are
called East in formal
parlance and then
South South/Niher
Delta when revenue
sharing is brought up
