The analysis for rating Abeokuta as 4th worst city to live in Africa is very flawed.

Anyway this would rather send a message to the state governor if he cares or worried about this derogatory news to buckle up as places such as Adedotun, mokola, Elega, Saje, Adatan, Lafenwa, itoko, olumo axis are seriously dilapidated with terrible road network.

I still maintained that the 10 lane construction dual carriage road from kuto to sagamu interchange is unnecessary as such fund can be used to expand the road along FUNAAB axis and rehabilitation from Adatan to lafenwa axis.

Ibadan is worse than Abeokuta. Go to places like mapo, Bere, oke ado, popo yemoja, oojo, sabo, you will know what original slum is. I bet you if you stay in Bere for a week you can fall sick and be admitted. Reason been that in the whole of Bere, 95% of the houses don't have toilets and they are so compacted to each other like sardine grin

The heading of your post is misleading... those are the best 60 cities to live in Africa, for Lagos to be ranked 43rd while Kigali is ranked 7th from the bottom says it all.

There are only two cities in the south west - Lagos and Ibadan. Others are towns.

Yenagoa is a town not a city. The only cities in the south south are port Harcourt and calabar, others are towns.

The white will not tell lie That is there candid assessment of Abeokuta. That shows the level of poverty and suffering bestowed on the Egbas by the present regime. People are really suffering, yet the government continue to tell lies. Remember that the assessment was not done only on d basis of road construction or infrastructure but also by the condition of leaving of the people. We appeal to Mr Governor Sir, to please approve the payment of Local Government pensioners monthly stipends for the month of January since there state counterparts has been paid weeks ago. Thank you sir

How do you define best? Most of the cities ranked top have constant Power supply, great infrastructure, good road networks, powerful and well equipped institution

You talked about Lagos. Lagos is a city where most of the people living there are suffering, even the traffic and the over-population. Lagos is now coming up in rankings now, as at last year, it was ranked among 10 worst cities to live in the world.

You know the of rentage and also the congestion. So with these facts you want to places top 10. Ask Yaba Tech, Unilag and the how they manage to secure accomodation, beat traffic and the general congestions without control

Before you all start writing rubbish about Abeokuta, remember this excerpt from the report

"The study which included all of the continent’s capitals and its largest urban centres, was based on criteria including social and living conditions, infrastructure, governance and environment"


This means Abeokuta is considered one of the largest urban centers in Africa which automatically put Abeokuta above your city except you're from Lagos
This report is rubbish, I schooled in Abeokuta, It's one of the best place to live. I was even considering not coming back to Lagos. There's nothing wrong with the living conditions in Abeokuta, most roads are good, and It's peaceful, the Taxi drivers will reverse to come pick you up. There's telecommunication network, there's internet - Maybe not as good as Lagos.Even the environment is looking better especially with developments from Amosun, I don't see any reason to think it's not a good place to live - I wonder what their study is all about. Abeokuta is not even claiming to be a city.

in case you don't understand how Google area works, it only give figures of the core local government areas, a city like aba or onitsha will only reveal the real size of aba north, aba south and onitsha north, onitsha south respectively. Overtime, these cities have grown beyound two local government, osisioma alone in aba is about the size of Abeokuta and it won't be included.

For port Harcourt, eleme, obio apkor and other sublocal govt won't be included.
