I don't agree with that. I have been to almost all the states in Nigeria, what I noticed is that 75% of the land mass are stil untappedl forest. Why can't people move to those places and developed those places? Instead of been jampacked on a small piece of land

Are you listening to yourself? People barely have food to eat yet you want them to go and clear a forest and live there?

I visited kibera slums sometime ago.....in fact I was shocked at how large the place is and how bad the living standards are. ironically, one would think it's only extremely poor people who live there....well not in Kenya! some well to do people live there also. in fact the government put in place a resettlement project....built houses with good amenities just across the kibera slums......trust Africans, they go to government, get allocations in the resettlement area and rather than move out of the slum to the allocated apartment, they turn around and rent out the apartments and remain in the slums!! the resettlement plan has so far failed due to this reason.

its physically and scientifically impossible for +1million people to live in the area kibera occupies, even if everyone lives in a 1 sq-foot cubical and there were no space for roads or anything else..... the UN and aid organisation have used the one million number to benefit themselves aid money.
a kenyan govt census cointing people on the grownd put the number at at 170k, another cencus cartied out by an international org using satelite imagery and counting the number of shaks and estimating each household put the number btn 190k and 200k

13. Shomolu (Nigeria).


Shomolu also known as Somolu is an unsophisticated neighborhood in the Ikeja Division of Lagos State, Nigeria. This urban slum is infamous for its poor infrastructure.

Shomolu ke? Where is Ijora , Badia , some part of Orile-lganmu, Abete, among others?

You dey craze ni?

That picture is llaje Bariga , a fishing settlement for Egun and llaje people .lt is connected to the earlier mentioned Makoko by canoe..

Strike shomolu off that list...

All the zincos go dey kpokpo eyes dey find Onitsha. I wonder how they will feel seeing the 4 largest slums in Nigeria and top 5 slums in entire Africa is in their almighty Lagos. For their tiny mind "Onitsha is the most populated city in the world nah".

Yes, it is. It is industrial population. Signifying the massive industrialisation of the area. None of the slums in Kenya, Lagos, India not even the largest slum in world, Mexico topped the list of the most populated. It is Onitsha that is far more developed and cleaner than them all.

The only problem with SE is bad road, we don't do slums. Even Aba that has the worst roads in the entire SE doesn't have any slum comparable with the smallest slum in Lagos. I once saw a report that says that any child born in the SE have the highest probability of not being born into a slum.

He is quite right, I felt the same way when I saw the shomolu part, but you would notice he said Ikeja division(even though, I don't know what that means) and a search on Shomolu on Wikipedia also brought the same Ikeja division

My own issue is why do you have Shomolu on the list when the main area you are talking about is Ilaje, but then you still feature the Ilaje on the list...

That's pure bias

See image of Ilaje (red point) in shomolu.

When we move some gala selling immigrants back to where they came from, be sure we would have no slum.

Explorers:
1. Kibera (Kenya).


Kibera is the largest slum on the outskirts of Nairobi. In fact it is the largest urban slum in Africa. Some reports suggest that the total population of this slum may be around 2.5 million. That is around 50 percent of Nairobi’s population. The slum is divided into several villages which include Gatwekera, Kianda, Kisumu Ndogo, Lindi, Laini Saba, Siranga, Makina, Mashimoni and Soweto East.

The population of Nairobi (including all its slums) is 3 million. Those are fake NGO numbers you are using.

But am still annoyed by the government's incompetency. What does it take to construct proper sewage and water supply, roads and low income houses? More of these should be shown so that the government government can stop sleeping on its job.
