i am not even sure where to post this question but i guess you can move it if you feel it ain't appropriate. anyway, lil background info, i'm not nigeria at all but i was born there and spent my baby years there till moving to north america. anyway, where i was born/lived while in nigeria was in sokoto and kano, i think kano was where i was mostly at. since i was only a kid, i can't remember way too much bout the place other then it open fields, not much of a urban area and dealing with sand storms. anyway, i left way in the early 80s and haven't been back to nigeria since then. so i am here posting, how those areas are these days, like has it changed for the better or worst or whatnot. i'd love to visit nigeria and all but my money situation is so bogus these days, i can barely afford to go downtown, let alone an african country.

then what would a forum be useful for? this was a topic starter and asking folks actually from there with possible back and forth interaction. using teh googles can only get you certain amount of info.

Its more developed now, it used to be very exciting backi n the late 90s early 2000-still is to many people
after 2003 Abuja developed rapidly politicians southerners and businessmen moved southwards abuja and kaduna
due to riots, dirty environment and sharia law

The Lebanese are having a field day though, building guest houses, and some entertainment centre in the business district

Kano like many states in the north will be the town that time forgot in some few years I'm afraid
