The Secret Of My Being A Port Harcourt Local Guide

Highly dense with population, Port Harcourt is a City with lot of travellers daily, and individuals trying to locate various places.

As an “Award-winning Web Leak & Review” blogger, the local guide was an ultimate medium to give honest reviews to places.

Additionally, I could rate poor places with 1-5 stars 🌟 accordingly. As a Port Harcourt local guide, I have gotten permission to enter some places to take photographers because am a ‘Rater’.

Subsequently, as a student I have converted my University campus to my tertiary territory for ratings and reviewing. Some of the places I have added to the map has benefited students largely.

These places are restaurants, bars, housing areas, markets, parks, banks, sporting centers and so know.

The Joy Of Reviewing and Reward

Late 2019, I believed Google noticed my effort and I was contacted to summit my address for a parcel. Few weeks into 2020, a local delivery brought my package to my doorstep.

This has so motivated me to continue reviewing places around Port Harcourt City and the University of Port Harcourt Campus. Why not give it a try as well.

Conclusively, as your favorite “Blogger Scientist”, I want to bring it to the know that I represented my Campus for a National Debate, guess what? I came out first.
