I'm tired of Lagos. Can anyone suggest a city or town in Nigeria one can move to to start all over again? Or even neighbouring countries?

Has anyone done that? Has anyone moved away from the hustling and buzzling of Lagos and maybe Ogun, to another part of the country where he/she doesn't know anyone to stay with, rent an accommodation, and find something doing to bring in income?

I want a laid-back, cheap, secured and peaceful place.

Please share. Will love to learn from you.

Thanks for your advice. I will not rush. I am in the research phase and will carry out due diligence.

I'd stayed briefly in Ibadan when I was younger. Well, since you asked I'd give you my honest observations, nothing personal. It was dirty, a bit rough, political thuggery was rampant, slight traffic, water shortage during dry season, rampant electricity outage, troublesome neighbours and some funny body odour, especially in the cabs. Lol. The city is very large yet there are no major industries or work except transportation, and trading. Though less aggressive than Lagos, the atmosphere was like Lagos. I don't want a place like Lagos. Only Bodija and Bashorun areas were my favourites. But it's possible things have changed now as I've not been for years.


I guess it's been years you last visited Ibadan, Ibadan is much of a refined city now. You can consider settling down at Abeokuta though.

Re: Where Is Best Place To Resettle Aside From Lagos And Ogun? by seunny4lif(m): 9:21pm On Dec 24, 2018
cool
Akure is really cool.
Acidosis:
Akure or Asaba, is cool.

I envy people working in mini cities and earning same amount of salaries with their colleagues in Lagos. In fact, most companies with branch offices around Nigeria do not care whether you spend 50k monthly on Lagos transportation, you all earn same with those in other parts of the country.

A typical Access Bank staff in Ibadan or Akure is twice as rich as his colleague in Lagos. While one is still trying to pay off rent for the year, the other is already contemplating whether or not to change his car.

Try Igboora.Ifeloju local government. Oyo state.U can open shop like mini super market. Sell things that are not common in the rural areas. Go to Lagos Island to buy many stuff, put them inside the shop. Rent self contain flat and start new life. After few months U will be attracted to local girls. Get settle with one of them and she will deliver U twins baby. The land is fertile soil for twins kids. Best of luck.

Rubbish place.

No money

No food

No accommodation. This one is very bad.

No good market.



The worst part is water scarcity.. No water in Enugu.

90 % use wells and buy water in tanks.

Tufiakwa..




.@ Op, no place is better than the other as such


Again, I guess you are yoruba, if yes forget east as language will be a barrier unlike lag or ph that uses pidgin or English, east uses igbo.


Oga no place will give you everything.



Please what part of Enugu do you stay

Relocate to ibadan. That’s your best bet aside Lagos

I would also recommend Ibadan --I bought land in elebu about 10yrs ago (250k/plot) -now that same place is a new town.

And when the lagos ibadan railway line completes it would become a gold mine.

I am just looking forward to that time with high hopes. It reminds me of what happened in badore (from about 2m/to 15m)

I think the OP needs to tell us more about himself -work/business ,family etc.

If you have some start up capital and interested in agricultural business, you can try Ibadan. It's laid back and if you plan your self well, I believe you can grow there.

How can one be tired of lagos

How can one not be tired of Lagos?
Lagos is a place where people make money...that's where it ends
If you grew up in peaceful places, you will have a hard time understanding Lagos madness
Transportation fares are extremely expensive
It's as though almost everyone in Lagos is mad, especially their commercial bus drivers
It's only in Lagos that bus seats don't have foams...just planks and plastic chairs in front seats
It's only in Lagos that conductors insult u because u don't have change
It's only in Lagos that people proudly give wrong direction to strangers instead of simply saying, "I don't know!"
It's only in Lagos that bus drivers break traffic laws, lies down to beg and Lastma official says no, the driver goes buck naked just to appear mad
It's only in Lagos that people scratch your car and they expect you to understand that it's a normal thing
Lagos is the capital of crime in Nigeria
It's only in Lagos that people spend 4-6 hours in traffic...and make a beautiful story out of it
Abnormal things are normal in Lagos
Conductors smell like pigs
Lagos is dirt/filthy
Lagos is home to the highest population of touts in Nigeria
Lagos taxes are some of the highest in Nigeria
The list is endless...
In summary, Lagos represents why nothing works in Nigeria
I am not hating; I am saying it the way it is...
Yes, I live in Lagos

I stay in sokoto and all I can say is the city is not bad. There is electricity but not 24hours o, at least you can get 10hours and even at times if there is power outage in the morning,by evening it would be restored. The city is secured too, you hardly hear cases of stealing, kidnapping, killing or Robbery but it happens once in a while sha. Things are pretty cheap here too. A friend of mine who rent a single room with toilet and electricity cost around 75k. you need to buy water, a gallon cost #40. Each room has a small veranda where you can bring out your cooking materials and cook. No kitchen. And if you are looking for self contain with 2 rooms with each toilet, kitchen, water, with a mini parlour. The last time me and another friend of mine checked, it cost 200k, it might have increased sha. Other than that, a course mate of mine rent a mini room(can't take more than 3occupants) , with toilet, kitchen and water. you will have to share the toilet and kitchen with another occupant. There is water. You pay for electricity. Fenced and there is gateman and security. Serene and peaceful. It is a bit far from the city (e no go pass 3km) and close to the federal university. From there to the city cost #100(bike) , bus(#50). 90k excluding electricity. Electricity is steady but not constant.
Electricity is steady but not constant.
Regarding business talk, sokoto no get companies except that cement factory oo. Before you come to sokoto to start a business, make sure your business is what the Northerners are interested in, if not e no go sell wella o. Clothes, food, animals stuff, transport, good and gadgets sell wella in sokoto. Traffic only dey once in a while.
Those are my contributions, if you need to know anything about sokoto let me know. And lastly, sokoto get fine gals plenty and clubs and bars make mad money here. Goodluck
....i'm serving in sokoto,dundaye inside usamu dan fodiyo uni.can u give me ur contact,there are many things would like to know about the town
