Secondly, the counties were before devolution considered as heavily marginalized with minimal infrastructural development and as such were operating nearly from ground zero up. Thirdly, the region has been occasioned by incessant spates of terror attacks and general clashes that could have in more ways than one hampered development and trade.Be that as it may, the average index for the region is 51.2% which is above the midway mark.
