There has always been controversy between Lagos and Abuja residents over which city is the most conducive to reside. Those who live in both cities never cease to share their varied opinions about this.
Abuja residents always claim to be more classy and calmer than Lagosians while Lagosians on the other hand claim to be the heart of the nation.
We at NREH carried out this survey to get facts about these arguments.
This is what people have to say
Seun Joseph said “Abuja is the real deal, who noisy Lagos help”
Lekan said “Abuja lo le se joor. There are too many slay queens in Lagos that won’t make me concentrate on my promising life. Lagos ba wo? Me I want to reap the fruits of my labour o!”
This is what Ezereonwu has to say “I got searched today at the border like I was a criminal. The money I managed to sneak out of my purse 3000 CFA, some idiots tried to steal it but I voiced out my anger. This country is becoming a hell hole but I love Naija Sha. I dey okoko now for one bar dey chill like idiot wey just come from Ghana”. Lol, we guess this man really needs that chilled drink.

“Lagos? I no get the strength” he said.

Lagos finally has a die-hard fan. Longe said he has lived in Lagos and Abuja all his life but he prefers Lagos.
Another fan of Abuja, Ben Odoh said “Abuja all the way because it is cool and calm not like that rough Lagos where people do nothing but rob each other. I also heard that workers wake up by 12:30am in order to beat traffic just to get to their workplace on time coupled with other factors that can stress them out. I have never been to Lagos for once and I never pray to”.
Okonoboh, Olumide and Adeleke are die-hard fans of Lagos. They said they always miss the state once they leave and can’t wait to come back
