You don't seems to understand the passage. The report is very clear on that- air pollutions from industrial activities. It is the same reason you have Chinese cities on the list and other emerging industrial cities in India and Pakistan.

Ghen! Ghen!

This par caught my attention no be small

A recent study of Onitsha’s water pollution found more than 100 petrol stations in the city, often selling low-quality fuel, dozens of unregulated rubbish dumps, major fuel spills and high levels of arsenic, mercury, lead, copper and iron in its water. The city’s many metal industries, private hospitals and workshops were all said to be heavy polluters emitting chemical, hospital and household waste and sewage.

Onitsha as a city does not even have up to 20 filling stations, not to talk of 100. This is the reason the report in it's entirety is only fit for dustbin..LOL

Because I am a resident, I know the city inside-out. We have barely less 20 filling stations here, so why did the report say over 100? It's very fishy!

“It is difficult to get accurate measurements in Africa. You can get super-high readings, but ideally the measurements should be done over a year to include different seasons and times of day. The reading in Onitsha may be representative but not altogether reliable,” said a WHO spokeswoman.


Unreliable report only fit for trash. Little wonder trashy people from SW are swimming on the trashy unreliable report.

I see a lot of folks here don't understand what the post is talking about. Being the most polluted city in the world doesn't generally denote dirtiness; rather,it is based on the particulate matters generated from the city which is in the air. These particulate matters come from sources like soots from vehicles,industries, construction activities,wood-burning etc - generally, industrialization. It's almost a problem with fast growing cities where a lot of industrial activities go on. Countries like China,Saudi Arabia etc have been battling with this for long. Air pollution poses health risks,which can in turn affect the economy of a place. The Nigerian cities affected should simply enact effective policies to mitigate against this,even as they continue with their industrial boom.




Help me educate them bro..

@OP,please give us the criteria for this rating and not just using 'polluted'. Is it noise pollution, environmental pollution, etc.

You don't just post something without write-ups to back your claims.

Until you edit your post and give us the bases of those ranking, your post remains null and void.

I can even see umuahia there and I hope it is not what am thinking?
bros....hope u can read verywell. Cos its either u didn't read the post at all or u lack the ability to comprehend wat u read.

I think [WHO] is based in Switzerland if am not wrong, while I am here in Onitsha. They sat in Switzerland and wrote that we have over a 100 filling stations whereas as a resident I know that we have less than 20. That alone has breached the integrity of the report among other things.

Ignoramus.

A region's living standard is best measured using the level of attainment of the millennia development goals( MDGs) by the region.

Well, here is a RELIABLE report on the attainment of MDGs by Nigeria regions.: : https://www.nairaland.com/2263635/south-east-south-west-south-south-lead-attainment

Sorry to say this, igbos are just too pessimistic in nature. All them know na just to make a Naira and brag around. Their unity shows when they want to share money or do business, humanity service is not in their dictionary. They are the definition of OYO and everybody na King for him lane hence their agidi attitude.

Another Yoruba sentimental being.

One minute, Igbos are accused of being too tribal and only care about their follow Igbos or perceived friends, and the next, they a're accused of being unable to bridge divides and form a common front.

The truth is that Yorubas are obsessed with Ndiigbo, the exact reason they seldom sound rational whenever a matter have to do with Igbos.

Some people really don't understand English. If some of you had taken time to read and assimilate you'll know that there's a difference between a place being filthy, dirty, contaminated and polluted.

Not surprised at all.......
Infact, if Nnewi ever grows to reach the size of a proper city, i expect it to join its brothers on the list. For now, it is just a scattered semi urban settlement with no plan.

Still you will resist any democratic moves they may want to make so that they stay on their on and solve their 'backwardness'

You are shamelessly contradictory.

Are you hign on weed or something.

Have you ever read where I ask you not to leave Nigeria and form your own country. In fact, i am pro-biafra and i want all of us in Nigeria to go our separate ways.

So please if you want to leave Nigeria, do us all the favor of not just talking about it but actually doing it. Start by leaving the south west for starters.
