Lekki is an incredibly packed space. One needs to be ready mentally and physically to live here. It requires a tough spirit and a willing mind to overcome the daily challenges here. Being a packed space, a lot of people tend to walk the wrong path but with the lord’s grace and help, we would make the right choices and abstain from evil.

A person moving to Lagos should expect constant gridlock on the roads. This is as a result of the city’s dense population. However, its nightlife is one for the books. People in the city tend to unwind at night to cool off from the daily hassles. Anyone would enjoy it.

If there is anyone moving to my city, Lekki, he or she needs to know it’s a very beautiful city. The city, an island, is surrounded by large bodies of water and it has a number of beaches. The city is also home to quite a number of companies, though rent is expensive.

The weather over here is hot so pack light. The city is expensive, so one has to beware of finances. Also, crime rate and civil unrest is high so one has to be careful. You have to be talented to survive. Everyone hustles day and night. Fame and money keeps the city moving.

Patience has become a virtue to be desired and envied; anyone who possesses it is held in high regard. Almost everyone in Lagos is in a hurry -motorist and pedestrian.

It is the most populated city in Africa, and is regarded as the commercial capital of Nigeria. As a result, it is not surprising to occasionally find oneself in traffic jams that last as long as six to eight hours.

The cost of living is expensive. In certain areas houses get flooded during the raining season. There is usually heavy traffic when coming to or leaving the area. Some parts of the city is highly developed while the further you go the less developed it is but the cost of housing reduces.

My city is a peaceful and relaxing place. The residents are diverse and welcoming to strangers. The first thing to notice about the city is the beautiful landscape. The houses are a bit unorganised but still beautiful to behold.
