Bro, Taraba is a nice place
Although I don't know about Keke business here...but as someone who lives here I can say the business is saturated
Cost of living should be definitely lower then Lagos
Standard of living should depend on you and the location where you will be renting your house; you can get a decent house(self contain) with well water and light for like 70-80k
You can also get something lesser but you might end up sharing toilet and there might not be water(well)
As for security, I give 80%
Bro hospitality won't be a major problem -- just be cool and simple. Try to learn some basic Hausa but pigin English should do
Foodstuff price should be definitely lower than Lagos--This is north oh

Please this is just my humble advice--- what do I know sef ,I am just a little kid still staying with his parents

Oh! Congratulations. My note will be based on Jalingo, other areas MIGHT be different.

Security: Taraba generally is the most peaceful state in the NE. Local security will now depend on where you're able to get accomodation but generally, it is peaceful. Don't just disrespect anyone around you cuz you might not know who is who.

Hospitality: They're friendly but I stay where I'm needed and comfortable. No unnecessary mingling.

Cost of Food stuff: Hmmmm. Food items are expensive o, yeah, you read that right but things are better in neighbouring towns.

Cost of house rent: This is dependent on facilities available and the area. Facilities like house design, power reliability, water, security, road network etc. Self con as low as 60k-80k, 1bedroom flat for 80-140k, 2 bedroom for 120 - 220k etc.

Power is stable to a fault. At least, I do enjoy overall 6-6½days (in hrs) in a week. Of course, location dependent.

In general, it's a good place if distance is not an issue. And if you're the big guy type that enjoys having "fun", you'll enjoy it more.

Yeah, tricycle as means of transportation, that's the main system in the capital except those with private means of transportation. So, availability isn't an issue and within 15mins, you can reach anywhere within the capital (no hold-up).

Good luck in your decision making.

Cost of living there should be pretty low compared to major cities or states.
