Anambra1stSon:

Ode you are really pained grin, grin comparing Anambra to Ogun and Oyo is absurd, Awka etiti it's a sub town of Nnewi, mind you this not the state capital, Anambra is far more urbanized than those mod enclave you came from.
Nnewi South is a Local Government Area in Anambra State,
south-central Nigeria. Its population is approximately 1 million.
Ukpor is the headquarters of Nnewi South. Other towns that
make up the local government include Ekwulumili , Amichi,
Azigbo, Unubi, Ezinifite, Osumenyi and Utuh. Others are
Akwaihedi, Ogbodi and Ebenator.

I can see that most of the arguments here are borne out of ethnic loyalty. We have to learn to be objective.

The truth is that, the South West is generally more developed and Urbanized than the South East. The only highly urbanized state in the South East is Anambra and Anambra is not necessarily more urbanized than Ogun state but when you consider it in relation to the landmass of these places, then one may not argue why Anambra came third. Anambra is actually the second smallest state in Nigeria after lagos.

sw on the whole is more urbanized than se due to historical settlement patttern..but apart from lagos when you come to development it is a bit debatable using present statistical data of different indices of development...NB urbanization does not necessarily mean development..

Some of these towns are rural-urban settings, u called Oba, students in tansian university still visits nnewi and onitsha for most of the tins that they use.

Somebody at Umunya cannot buy whatever he/she needs at New Parts Nkpor? What can you find in Onitsha that's not at Nkpor?
You clearly fail to understand the Igbo philosophy at getting at the head of the stream (isi mmili). People visit Onitsha to buy things, not because they cannot be found at the neighbouring Ogbunike, Ogidi and Nkpor but becuase Onitsha is the biggest market in Nigeria and have the reputation on itself plus the fact that the transport fare between Umunaya (where the University is located to Onitsha Main market) is barley N100.

Tainsian University students visit Nnewi to buy what? Motorcycle? LOL!

I understand the difference between urbanization and development. it's clear the SW (Apart from Lagos) is more urbanized than the SE. In terms of development, it's debatable depending on the metric you want use but i still feel the SW is more developed than the SE even if it's with a tiny bit. The only thing is that i see the SE cities going very far in the future as they are growing in a more modern way unlike some other cities in other parts of the country.

Exactly and most of them don't know that when some cities like Onitsha, Nnewi etc are mentioned that includes the neighbouring Urban Towns like Obosi, Nkpor, Ogidi, Nkwelle, Ogbunike ...
Somebody who lives in Awada (Obosi), 3-3 (Nkwelle), Omaba Phase 3 (Nkpor) etc will always tell you they live at Onitsha but you can see that none of them are located at Onitsha.

Nsukka has a university and other institutions but it doesn't make it an urban area. The four "international" stadium you mentioned are just normal places football is kicked. show me the real environment of the Ogun state you are shouting, please do. The Ogun state I know very well just started rearing its head out in this Amosun regime I.e Abeokuta itself.

You made mention of mowe, apart from the industries who cannot find land in Lagos and had to settle in nearby state, what other activities can be found in those areas I.e mowe, ibafo, etc.

Ogun state is coming up.

Egbon, mo ti lo gbogbo igboro ti e jabo. E ma lo ma kowa he, se gbo?
have you been to Nsukka before? Nsukka is urban biko. Or is ur definition of urban different from the laid down characteristics of urban areas? I agree Enugu shouldn't be on the list simply because she lacks the spread of urban areas. Only Enugu North and South and Nsukka can be said to be urbanized.

My friend push your lazy ass up tour round Nigeria you will understand, Anambra is highly urbanized state with 62% of its population living in urban areas Anambra is second most densely populated state after Lagos state, The major urban centres of Anambra state are Onitsha including Okpoko, Nnewi, and Awka. Awka and Onitsha developed as pre-colonial urban centres with Awka as the craft industrial centre of the Nri hegemony; and Onitsha the city state on the Niger and a river port and commercial centre, Onitsha is a fast-growing commercial city, and has developed to become a huge conurbation extending to Idemili, Oyi and Anambra East LGAs with one of the largest markets in West Africa. Nnewi (the Taiwan of Nigeria) is a rapidly developing industrial and commercial centre; and Awka, by becoming the state capital.
Other main towns of Anambra state are: Abagana, Ekwulobia, Enugwu Ukwu, Ogidi, Okija, Ozubulu, Nkpor, Obosi, Igbariam, Oko, Obosi, Ogbunike etc

This list is faulty. Lagos position is unarguable but 2nd on that list should be Anambra. 3rd should be Imo and 4th Rivers State. When you check the population density if these States you won't help but acknowledge that fact. Oyo despite having the 3rd largest city and 9th largest city is full of empty land. I will do a bit of google earth to give a hint instead of mere assumption.
