6. Benin City:  Also known as the Ancient City, Benin is known for its rich cultural heritage aging back to the 18th Century. The Portuguese visited Benin City around 1485. Benin grew rich during the 16th and 17th centuries due to trade within southern Nigeria, as well as through trade with Europeans, mostly in pepper and ivory.

7. Aba:  Aba might not be a popular city in Nigeria but it is surely one of the most visited cities in the South Eastern part of Nigeria. Aba just like Onitsha is a strong commercial hub that services the South South people. If you want to buy anything in bulk, I mean anything, and you stay in Uyo, Port Harcourt or Yenagoa, you will be asked to go to Aba first before considering other options.

A couple of other cities do draw attention, cities like Ibadan, Uyo, Asaba, Nnewi, Enugu, Kaduna and Zaria. So whenever you are been asked tell them these cities pull the weight in Nigeria.
