Was born in Port Harcourt, schooled in UNN, I know both city Very well and this my conclusion

Enugu is better planed, the only place planed in pH is the old township

Road network s enugu anyday, thank God for ameachi if not Port Harcourt roads were a mess, he did alot yet not upto enugu

Economy, Port Harcourt is light years ahead of enugu

Social life, bros leave am enugu win am, but pH try sha

Beauty, Enugu is naturally beautiful, most people shouting calabar have not really been to enugu, been to calabar many times and can say authoritatively that owerri and enugu beats it in terms of arrangement and beauty
PH try sha. .. But way back in the line

The truth is that pH was never designed to be a big city it was supposed to be a Port city to serve enugu

So in all enugu win am ooh

Most Nigerian cities were planned and most have been distorted. Lagos is the biggest victim followed by Port Harcourt.

Absolute rubbish. There was nothing 'planned' about Lagos. The whites only 'planned' Ikoyi for themselves and left the rest of Lagos to rot. Similar occurred in PH and every other city.

There is no need for this dumb comparism.
Enugu is secured, peaceful, less/no traffic, has one of the 3 best road networks in Nigeria, greenery, Beautiful estates, well planned streets, clean environment, Less Noise, Serenity, No/little flooding after rain. Etc
O42 is a class.
PH is okay but its unorganised to me with heavy traffics, flooding after rain and insecurities here and there, high cost of living, Sodom and Gomorrah center of Nigeria etc..
it's like u don't understand the question
Which is more developed between PH and Enugu and u are using insecurity and trafic to disqualify a more developed city. Can u now say because USA has the highest of crime and China has the highest of trafic jam they are now underdeveloped countries?

There is a thin line between beauty and development which if you are not careful you might misunderstand the two terms. Calabar for instance is more beautiful than Port Harcourt but Port Harcourt is far more developed infrastructurally and city wise. so Enugu might be beautiful serene and safe but where is foreign investors first port of call when they come to Nigeria ? the international community, which cities do they see as Nigeria's top most developed. Every advert you see in Nigeria about major investments summits has the format Lagos Abuja & Ph. entertainment wise Mtn project fame, Nigeria's got, Nigerian idol, Glo x-factor, Ay live shows name them, all go through Lagos-Abuja-PH format before any other cities comes up. They don't do all this for nothing. Let's not allow tribal sentiments make us look dumb, let's face the fact pH is more developed and Enugu is beautiful it's that simple .

It's nothing to do with Europeans. Trust me most Nigerian major cities I own properties like Owerri, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Abuja have master plans. Every plot of land is recorded and its purpose clearly defined. There are areas mapped out for open spaces, recreational parks, future rail lines, power lines, schools etc. Some are even digital like Greater PH city where you can view everything using google earth at their office to point out specific plots.

In most cases the natives of the area often take laws into their hands because of rising property value and at the end of the day Government is forced to yield to their excesses. In our tradition they own the lands while by law Government does.

Ah bros. Enugu was well planned o, calabar too. I think the successive govts- Eastern region, Enugu state etc have done well in maintaining the standard of Enugu particularly.

in terms of economy port harcourt is more advanced no doubt, but development transcends that.
Nigeria is a bigger economy than south Africa but is Nigeria more developed? Is china more developed than US yet its economy has overtaken that of US

Enugu has a better and cheaper transport system, road network, security etc Than PH

also things are quite cheaper there as against PH which is too expensive.

The problem PH had was the state creation. It was planned to be a port city to serve the eastern region. It was never planned to be an administrative capital like Enugu, calabar and owerri. It should be a big commercial center like Onitsha and Aba.
But it was made River state capital. How can one place serve as an oil city, industrial center and a state capital. It surely wont be as organised a Enugu

Who said enugu has no traffic? I know the road network in Enugu makes for easy diversions, but durig rush hours: mornings, 5pm in the afternoons , and 8pm at nights, you will understand that Enugu is far more populous than people Than people think.
You are right on the fact that PH has more congestion and other aspects.

Enugu is not a higher city than Port Harcourt. It is rather a laid back city with less distortion of its master plan. Port Harcourt is like a real city and comes behind Lagos and Abuja in terms of advancement not beauty.

Enugu is no longer laid back.
Even the industrial nature of the city is underrated

Port Harcourt is more advanced but Enugu is generally finer with reservations because of a nasty red soil type as against Port Harcourt's clear sandy soil which is more pleasant to the eyes.
so you have finally traveled to enugu.. remaining asha90..

I am Currently in PH. Have always wanted to visit enugu. My cousin who has stayed very long in these two cities say enugu is more beautiful than PH. And am wondering,what can be more beautiful? PH is the way it is because of the oil companies situated in the state. If not, it would probably be like bornu state

if there are no oil companies then it wouldn't have been a one city state and God would have embed in it another natural resource to raise it's profile.
