Lagos State is in the Southern part of Nigeria. It used to be the capital of Nigeria. Abuja took over and became the Federal Capital Territory not too long ago.
Lagos is scandalously over populated. There are wonderful places as well as awful places too. The awful places are characterised of conjested buildings with little or no ventilation.
But then, Lagos is a wonderful city. You will find all tribes that make up Nigeria in Lagos. It is called "No Man's Land" because it accommodates all and creates opportunities for those who are hardworking to get rich quick.

Lagos is Dynamic

Lagos used to be the halmark and the ultimate for Nigerians. If you are a Nigerian and you have never been to Lagos, you are not satisfied until you do. Becuse Lagos had and still ofers survival opportunities to struggling masses. One good news about Lagos now is that the present and past governorsof Lagos had made Lagos the envy of all. You need to visit Lagos.


Enugu is my state and we call it EBE ANO State. Enugu is peaceful, welcoming and exciting. Our beloved governor -His Excellency Sullivan Chime has transformed Enugu into another "NEW YORK CITY". In fact, our governor promised us that Enugu will later like other fully developed foriegn countries. And indeed, he has started doing it. Enugu is clean, neat and tidy always. You get exotic txai cabs who are ready and willing to take you to any place at all times. The weather and the environment makes Enugu a city you must visit. besides the local Akanu Ibiam Airport in Enugu is being upgraded to an International Airport stadard. Unlike other states in Nigeria, Enugu is enjoys peace and free from harrassment from the underworlds. VISIT ENUGU TODAY AND YOU WILL BE THRILLED!

    I imagine the crowd and traffic jam , 10 million people in one city , it must be difficult when the weather is very hot
