Seven (7) Most Developed Cities In Nigeria. In Order Of Development IMHO by Nobody: 12:29am On Apr 21, 2020
As a Nigerian that has travelled and Shuttling between regions etc. This is my "unbiased and candid Arrangements:
1. Lagos
2. Kano
3. Port-Harcourt
4. Ibadan
5. Enugu
6. Kaduna
7. Abuja

My basis for the arrangement:
- Economic activity, which is Number 1 and the reason I can call a city developed in the first place. This I did vis-a-vis considering places with more (main/corporate/regional) headquarters of companies/multi-nationals as any city that would habour multinational corporations is deemed to have high economic activity hence in this case, DEVELOPED.
- Infrastructures which is number 2.

* Would have rated kaduna before Ibadan but like I said, my number 1 basis is Economic Activity.

* Quite difficult to determine which should come first, kaduna or Enugu but in this case, I used cleanliness lol. Or maybe I'm just biased. I love state of Enugu. Very good weather too hence Enugu came first. This is subject to criticism which I can agree.

* Would have rated Abuja over kaduna, Enugu, Port-Harcourt and even Ibadan BUT my number 1 priority is Economic activity. 2. Abuja is a transit town. Go to Abuja during festive seasons and you'll hate yourself. Everybody's gone back home. Abuja is not a serious town. It's economic activity is not stable and secured. Remove the seat of power from Abuja and you won't even see Abuja on the map again. It won't even stand close to nasarawa sef in terms of economic activity. Abuja is really fake and it's a civil service town. Not a town for serious business. I only placed Abuja there sef because of the infrastructures available otherwise it wouldn't make the list. Companies sited in Abuja are likened to companies or organizations temporarily located in an area (more like erecting tents in a location just to meet up with certain needs). After the needs are met, THEY PACK-UP. The companies there are just sited to fulfill all righteousness if not, you won't see them there. Wise companies place their headquarters in Abuja but have what they call "corporate headquarters" in Lagos just in case lol. They are wise. Businesses in Abuja are just there to be closer to Government officials and nothing more. After they get what they want, THEY LEAVE.
The headquarters there are what I call the "TENT HEADQUARTERS"



Please, "NEATNESS" wasn't a basis used as what's the use of neatness where there's no money.
Your constructive criticisms are welcomed. First picture Enugu

Never! Ibadan is pretty big especially as regards economic activity. Enugu can't stand close to it. In fact the no 4 I gave it is shaking but I just felt it should chill for ph.

Haba na! Enugu?? Save for Lagos, Ogun cannot stand on it's own. It's just using its proximity to Lagos. It should be in first 10 yes but not first 7 please. You obviously haven't been to Enugu That's why. Enugu is no match for Ogun please.

Akwa Ibom is No match for jos when it comes to economic activity not to talk of Almighty Enugu. That was my number 1 basis for putting Enugu up there. Say Canada neat pass US no mean say e better reach US
