Yenagoa is by the coast and below sea level. The landscape is sparse with fewer population. We are the city between Warri and Port Harcourt. We are an oil-producing state that contributes tremendously to the country population. Politically bold and very hospitable.

Someone moving to Yenagoa should know the roads are quite narrow so you don’t need big cars (especially SUVs). Parking space is a huge challenge as well. The people are friendly and accomodating. You will also enjoy a lot of fresh fish pepper soup in the city. The city also has a beach which usually crowded during the weekends.

Yenagoa is a small metropolitan area of about 250,000 people. Compared to other capital cities in Nigeria, my city experienced almost zero traffic jams and the air is relatively clean. If you want to live a simple rural lifestyle with all the benefits of city life then Yenagoa is the place for you.

The city I reside, is still a developing one. There are very few pleasurable sites to visit like the peace park and the Oxbow lake, where people go to relax mostly in the cool of the evening. The people are also very friendly and accommodate strangers in a warm manner.
