Not to burst any bubbles, but Africa has a long way to go.
Lots of grading on a curve going on here.

There's absolutely no list where Lagos n Los Angeles should be in proximity. Other than population

Imagine comparing my Onitsha to Dallas
Enugu to Houston
There's no comparison using whatever metric

African cities should be compared to other African cities. Leave Europe n North America alone. Asia sef

Indonesia city even more urbanized than New York?
It is not most urbanized but built up.
Onitsha is a tiny city established by the Binis that is not expanding as it should.It is a very old city which had failed to grow and gain more land like Ibadan.
Onitsha is only 52 square km while Ibadan is 3,080 square km.Onitsha is just about 5 GRAs in Ibadan.We have seen this demographia thing before sha.

Sorry to deviate..

Am I the only one or is there someone else who has noticed that recently, any issue affecting the whole of nigeria, like bad policies from the government, increased in VAT, electricity bill or fuel pump price increase..the Igbos hardly join in protest. When I said Igbos I mean the 5 South eastern states.

Is this to show that despite majority of Igbos being against this government, yet those that supported the government(especially north and south west) are the ones being hit by the famine? Cause there has been series of protests in Abuja, Lagos and some other northern and south western states, yet the 5 eastern states are quiet about it and going about their normal businesses.

Two things are involved,
1. It is either the Igbos don't see the challenges as a burden. Or

2. Igbos truly don't care about Nigeria and only interested in Biafra.. meaning whatever is happening in Nigeria is none of their business.

Lagos is made up of all the tribes' in Nigeria collective effort but Onitsha is based on only the effort of Igbos. Think about that.

Silly excuse.
Why didn't "all the tribes" go to their respective states to make them great?

maybe I should say, onitsha is the collective efforts of all Igbos (not Just Anambra).
Or do you want to argue that Eboyians and Asaba people doesn't constitute about 25% of onitsha?

Kip kwayet and make research before spewing your nonsense.
Your silly landmass thing has been dealt with before, for the education of everyone, the landmass used for Onitsha is that for old Onitsha and leaving the newer and more populated areas out, just like limiting the landmass and population for Lagos to Lagos Island, Ikoyi and the Iddo areas, not even V.I and Lekki is included.
Mushin, Ikeja, Agege etc are not even remembered.
That for your Ibadan is for Ibadanland and not the built up Ibadan. So if we are to go with your nonsense from Wikipedia then Ibadan is as big as Lagos state, do I need to tell you it's false?

I only wanted to respond to this.
The Ibadan you're talking about, do you mean the developed part of ibadan or ibadan as a whole.

if you're talking about Ibadan as a whole then I'm telling you it's bigger than Lagos.

That's because you guys are affected by war and your landmass are small.
There is no place in Igbo land where a plot Is sold for 500k or less.
Meanwhile there are many places in Yoruba land where a plot is sold for 100k

Now imagine you guys after the war, where lands are sold as much as 5million in a village. Will that person build house with olden days roofs or modern day roofs?

Check Benin, Akwaibom, port Harcourt (at least I've been to those 3)
They also have lots, I mean lots of brown roofs

Lol. It's like you don't understand. I remember when sowore was protesting and so many igbos did not join the protest. They sat behind their keyboards supporting him from the internet. Let me tell you why. Over the years, ever since that your current president was sworn into office, any cause that the igbos support will be looked at like a biafra protest . If not a biafra protest, then the whole Nigeria will look at the matter and say we are protesting or reacting because we hate buhari and apc. That's the truth. Let's start from when buhari was busy appointing only northerners into key offices. We voiced our displeasure, but everyone said that it's because we hate buhari. The Niger delta avengers case came, and every body said that we hate buhari and that's the reason we support the avengers. There are so many things that happened that time, and when we say something against the government, then we automatically hate buhari. So what's the need? If we protest on the streets against the government today, just watch. You will see your useless government officials coming out to ask if we are the only people in Nigeria. What do you want us to do? So we left you to do the protesting. At least you are not igbos, and so, they will hear you.

And by the way, igbos are surprised with the protests because we honestly thought that you guys love the country and the way it is. Don't blame us because the way you guys react when we speak against the government, it will make someone believe that we just making noise because we hate buhari. We are surprised ohh. We didn't expect you to protest. We thought you loved the country. So please don't blame us okay.

I agree with Lagos being more ubarnized but I disagree with onitsha being more ubarnized than ibadan, kano and Kaduna

I have been to onitsha, onitsha is a glorify shithole

In terms of ubarnized area no state in the south east is close to Kaduna

Kaduna is not only more urbanized... Kaduna is more develope

One thing most Nigerian will be shocked to find out is that the South east region as far back as the 90s have been paying the highest cost of petrol. This has been the case for a very long time and Igbos have just adjusted economically to it.

They didn't join the protest when GEJ partially took out the subsidy and they wont join any protest under buhari or any other president.

Forget the statistics from Yemi and his collaborators, the south east has a very strong middleclass that has been able to withstand so many harsh environment for decades.
