Explorers abeg mention slaughter junction for woji port harcourt na..


Or u never reach all these villages for north?
The north is by far more infrastructurally developed than the south for your information. Go to sokoto, kano, gombe bauchi etc and see road networks, you go bow. Stop basking in ignorance

9. Agbogbloshie (Ghana).



This slum city is located in South Ghana. It is popularly known as Sodom and Gomorrah. It has been labeled as the largest waste dumping site in the world. Agbogbloshie slum dwellers face serious health risk from the electronic dump site located here. Around 80,000 squatters hang around this site and deal in scrap metals.

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.

What are you saying lol

Huge sections of Aba is largely slum.

I thought after saying you know nothing, you would try to show I was wrong, but you instead made me very correct.

Its probably what a relative of yours who came to lagos must have told you, that lagos got beggers, no doubt. What you don't know is people come from other states/neighbouring countries to lagos to beg! just like how some folks come to sell gala and lacasera.

Now about where they live, I mean your gala selling folks, if they don't live in shanties or under bridge and festac, where then do they stay.


You can still show me you know something Sir.
A typical Afonja will always insult to deflect attention.

Like I said before, them be Chinese beggars. Maybe it time you travel outside your wasteland. Your brothers are littered in the streets of SE begging. Sorry, Chinese beggars.

So where do your Agberos live?

SE don't stay in Shanties. They are spread in all parts of Lagos. Ojo, Idumota, Oshodi, Aj, Ikeja, Isolo, Mushin. There are are over 35 markets in Lagos and SE have large presence in all.

He didn't specify, and besides do you know any slum in Ondo state that would make top 20 in the world? What is the population of ondo state? The standard of living in ondo state isn't so bad as well. So even if he mentions ondo state which i doubt, then he is still wrong with it.

I'll take this as sarcasm. Unless you don't know what a slum is. If you say bad road, I'll give you a pass mark. But slum? Na F you get be that.

If Aba is a slum, then the entire Ekiti State is a slum. At least Aba was not listed in that stat. It must be hard for you knowing your overhyped Lagos is a slum.

Where do agberos live? Ever heard of mushin agege? Isale eko Iyana ipaja, bro, you indeed know nothing, if you think agberos live in slums.

So someone that sells Gala, and makes profit of about 500naira daily lives in isolo? Ikeja? Oshodi?

Stop this folly already, Ekiti is a largely rural state. Rural is different from slum.

About 60% of Africa remains rural, can we say 60% of Africa is slum?

This is a google earth aerial of Aba... Tell me and every reasonable person on this forum that this isn't a slum.



Keep fooling yourself there.
That Aba wasn't listed in the OP's post does not mean it isn't a slum, fool. There are several huge slums in Ibadan, Warri, Benin, Kano, Onitsha, Jos and several other places that were not there.

Agberos don't live in Shanties, but Igbo men doing legitimate business in Lagos are? Don't forget it is in this your Oshodi, SE voted an Igbo man into your parliament. They have large population their. Every part of Lagos, V.I and lekki, they have large representation. Deal with that.

aid agencies and the UN use the +1million quote for kibera slum to get more money... It is physically impossible for 1miilion people to fit in the small area that kibera occupies even if you were to remove all the roads theire and build 1sq foot shaks for all families .

kibera population cencus found 170,000 people.. hardly makes it the biggest anywhere

Mr, we are not talking about the legal part of the business or work they do. What we are on about is where the 500naira perday/IE reside.

The money a lower ranking agbero makes in a day is 4 times or even more than that 500naira.


Please next time talk about what you know, and if you don't know, don't talk or better still, seek to learn. It wouldn't hurt.

Like I said, you don't know the definition of a slum. Aba is only characterized with bad roads. Bad road alone doesn't make a city a slum.

I refer to slum site in Nigeria according to wikipedia.

Have you heard of the "floating slum"? It is in Lagos
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2209520/The-world-Nigerias-floating-slums-Heartbreaking-photos-reveal-struggle-villagers-forced-live-shacks-water.html

What of the Mega city of Slum?
http://www.irinnews.org/news/2006/09/05/lagos-mega-city-slums

If Aba is a slum, then Aba must be a learner where Lagos is.

About the article you quoted, it doesn't have weight cause it is a mere academic research work and any body can write anything. The author didn't even state the source of that silly assertion. Meaning it is imagination.

The satellite imagery shows that Aba is well planed city. And that is true. But the only problem is Aba road and the current Governor is fixing some part gradually.

Lagos is a mega city slum.
