Lagos is a rough place cos of its population but most people there are generally all noise and ginger
That's true, Igbo's dominate Lagos, they ar too noisy

Its not only In Rivers that Ruggedity is a culture the other states I listed plus some places in lag also has Ruggedity as a culture. A reason that I didn't put other states like Onitsha and Aba is cuz they don't posses this quality.

But currently though, I see PH more rugged than Benin, not Edo.
Edo is not as rugged as portharcourt. The only dreaded place in Edo is ekosodin. I lived there for some years. Cultism thrives there like an English ivy in a pond. Ask acecube, he used to be the capon of a very deadly fraternity before he was arrested by the rapid response squad. As I'm speaking, he's typing from the kuje maximum security prison, Abuja

Sinistami:
Hello! Good morning Dear Nairaland. Today we'll be going through 5 of the most Rugged States in Nigeria. First and foremost let me clear this up for you, Ruggedity doesn't translate to Violence. The People of this Seven states might be Rugged but not necessarily violent And life in Nigeria actually needs Ruggedity, but for this 5 States its a way of life . And in Numerical order from 5 to 1 we give you the most Rugged States in Nigeria.




5 Lagos State: owing to its diversity and being Nigeria's Economic and Commercial capital, Lagos makes this list by Default. I liken Lagos to Newyork City. A large population Of Crazy people why wouldn't anyone be rugged . Especially in places like Ajegunle, Mushim,Bariga,Ojuelegba,etc


4. Bayelsa: The Dream Jerusalem of the Ijaw Nation, Bayelsa is miles away more Rugged than Lagos which is only rugged in some Neighborhoods, In Bayelsa even the Villages are Rugged From villages like Peremabiri to Amassoma to Yenagoa places like Down Yenagoa , Obele, Amarata, Ekeki, owns Ruggedity in Bayelsa but no other states to fill the Gap so it stays in No.5. Bayelsa is one of the States in the South along with Rivers which has turned Cult OT Slangs like "Wida" into a normal Pidgin Word. That tells you something right? And Most Bayelsans were actually citizens of Places like Boro-kiri Portharcourt, Ajegunle etc when this people came back to Bayelsa coupled with the Effects of Niger delta Bayelsa crises. Ruggedity flows in their Veins.


3 Delta: 10 Gboka for Una. Warri Warri Warri. Una no de karri last kpata-kpata na draw! Normally Delta should have been number two or even one. But this is New Warri not Old Warri. Don't be deceived Delta is peacefull now. The Warri Crises is far over but still Ruggedity still flows in their veins and they're don't hide it and that's one reason I love this peeps.

2. Rivers: Home to Port Harcourt which I liken to L.A or Compton. Who no go no know. This state is called Lagos of the South and it can prove it actually is. Rivers is the Father of Bayelsa its to Bayelsa what Edo is to Delta. Its has been a hot Bed of Cultism, Militancy in the past so you know it flows in the Blood. The State still has lots of Serene places but..........

1. Edo : If I forget Baffi wetin I gain? The Ancestral Home of most Nigerdelta Groups. Edo with a population of 8 million people is the Host of the City Benin. Edo is like Delta in everyway but in Ruggedity? The other Four states are learning. In Benin if you're not Rugged then you're OYO on your own. Although One can argue it was the Deltans that made Benin Rugged because they were all one once. but Still Twale for Baba!!!!

is that an achievement or what's

SMH with all the statements I am reading here. So criminality, violence, fraud, cheating and making a place to be unwelcoming is now your definition of ruggedity? This is something to be proud of. There is nothing compare to living in a peaceful environment devoid of all this so called ruggedity, where someone can raise a family in peace without corruption.
This is a dent on Nigeria image, Seun, u need to close this thread.
You dey mind them!
Personally, I'd define ruggedity to mean having instincts to survive harsh economic, social, marital and even financial conditions without having to get involved in cultism and other social vices. That's ruggedness and not the robbing,pickpocketing,maiming etc slangs being thrown around to describe ruggedness on here.

Now,you're talking about ruggedness in people and not in places.if it's that,then the Igbos get the nod over others.

To your point,well,I've not really mingled with ample south southerners to buttress your point. Majority of the few ones I've encountered or befriended were "bread and buttered" outside their region of origin. Aldou,d few minority showed tenacity and lots of instincts to survive but it's a small sample size if you ask me.

we're talking of ruggedness in states not people, don't put words in my mouth

I think its cuz you've not met many SSners (most people don't even know who we are talk less of what we can do) if not you'll know who taught Igbos how to be rugged. Jus try n visit PH or Warri and move round you'll see what i mean

@ the bolded,you talked about people and not the places,as the subject matter implies.

Igbos still beat others when it comes to ruggedness and south southerners are not even close bro. We got the yorubas after the Igbos.
As for places, i will reserve my comments for now.

You have a problem with basic understanding. The fact that you emphasizing on Lagos further buttresses my point. Read the title of the thread again and come make a meaningful submission. Only then will I respond to ur subsequent mentions. As for this,it's not worth my time.

Meanwhile,you should Check up the meaning of ruggedness. Gracias!

All you've said is bayelsa guys in ajegunle blablabla. Lagos seems to be your only place of reference for the rugged people. For you to even underrate yoruba ruggedness and tell me i've not gone beyond southwestern states is laughable. You think I'm like u who analyses ruggedness of people in their comfort zones right. Heck nah!

How you even qualify extortion,robbing and laziness as rugged is what i would never understand....hian!

The gods of rational reasoning would not forgive me if I continue to argue this with you...take care bro!

Yoruba Rugged Keh!! I agree igbos can be rugged o! But Yoruba people that haven't seen anything. Lag weh cultist they wan use me and my Bro count scores before into Shenkes mata. Nai we vex perform wan trick weh we de do well well for BY. We pulled our clothes and turned our bear backs to then and said: " We don giv una our back to butcher o! so make una do o! but if una matchet once no kill us ehn!! then una go know who be who. Una go knw say Millitant full ground" And that's when they cooled down. And now we and dem na padi. if its Igbo land I haven't really gone farther than Aba and Onitsha, and its only for once only for market but I have peeps that have stayed at IMO and Enugu for like four years.

And were not qualifying Lazyness Robbery and Extortion for ruggedness were only saying peeps who can survive around here are rugged. Hence the South South Centric list.
