Here are 5 top reasons we hate living in Lagos

  1. The Crazy Traffic

The traffic situation in Lagos is crazy, enough to get you depressed for a whole day, the sick feeling of being stuck on the road for hours and dealing with annoying road users who think they deserve to be home first.

Living In Lagos

  1. The Cost Of Living

Lagos is pretty expensive when it comes to prices of things; it takes twice the cost of living outside Lagos to actually make it through as a Lagocian.

  1. The Thug Life

There’s no way you’ll live in Lagos and not have a share of the Thug life, from the area boys to the conductors and even armed robbers, people get sick of having to face the thugs that appear to not have a life talk less of caring about yours.

  1. The Cost Of Rent

Even the houses outside the Island these days are bank breaking, the cost of renting a good and convenient apartment anywhere in Lagos is not beans.

Living In Lagos

  1. Police Harassment

Boys get to suffer more in the hands of policemen in Lagos, with all the trend about yahoo boys, Policemen are constantly on the lookout for young boys with laptop bags and multiple ATM cards. Driving is also a perfect ticket into the hands of the police.

There’s so much that gets us tired of living in Lagos, from the moment we have to be on our own and explore the city in search of greener pastures, we face the real and bad side of Lagos.

Kindly drop your opinion in the comment section below. What do you hate about living in the city?

    Comment *Lol I have this "what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger" approach to Lagos life. But my all time Lagos pet peeve has got to be public bus drivers (danfo drivers); they are a hazard/threat whether you’re in one, driving by one or just innocently walking on the road around one, its so annoying!
