Population density is evidence of development. The less dense an area is, the poorer in tends to be. Also if Westernization is so bad, get of this computer invented by the West. Get off this internet invented by the West. Stop using electricity invented by the West..

Why don't you go live in the forest?

not true
It isn't
Didn't you study geography in school?
Are Slums and ghettos not densely populated?
Are they developed?
Dense cities give off the most pollution

Imagine carrying a bucket of water to the 5th floor. Ground floor must be hot cake in Onitsha, especially in houses without water supply.

How idiotic can certain dumbass fools sound in Nigeria? Who gives a ratass about what a goofy Indian thinks about cities in Nigeria? India, China, Vietnam or Philippines have population issues relative to land availability. Nigeria has its problem and will manage it accordingly. Only a fool will make disparaging statement about his\her people because one useless goon from India said something about erecting buildings. The poster of above junk added credence to the fact Nigeria is a basket of fools.


Don't mind these low self-esteem fools. Onitsha is a classical example of a concrete jungle. The city is an environmental disaster waiting to happen.

The houses are too close to one another. most of the houses lack portable or running water. There is no green since everywhere is built up. The house lacks aesthetic etc.

I would rather live in a small functioning town like Suleja than that huge pile of urban concrete.

Outside Lagos and Abuja, few cities in Nigeria can compete with the city of Onitsha

I have been to Onitsha on several occasions. I can tell you that Asaba nearby is far better than it. Building ugly concrete for the sake of building storeys building doesn't make a city. Onitsha is the last of places, anyone will like to stay or visit.

Westerners wouldn't even build a giant concrete structure without landscaped area, running water, motorable street etc.

Onitsha is a huge pile of concrete waste. The houses are ugly, the street is choked up and the city lacks greenery.

Exactly. This is what we tell people. Proper organisation. The buildings may not be the best but you could see planning which Ibadan lacks
See onitsha below. With grid system

y.

You are driven by bitterness, frustration and envy. Here are two cities of Onitsha and AKURE. Which one of them fits into your description? From the pictures below Onitsha looks like a real 21st century city while AKURE looks like a typical ancient rural area dotted with mud houses and rustic brown roofs

1. Onitsha

2. AKURE

3. Onitsha

4. AKURE
