7 Things Ibadan People Enjoy That Lagosians Don’t

September 4, 2020

Life in Ibadan needs more hype. By the time you are done reading this post, you will understand that true-true, Lagosians are suffering.

1. Cheaper house rent.

In Lagos? God help you oh.

2. Cheaper transport fare.

Do you want to be shocked? Ibadan people pay as low as N20/N30 for taxis. Even okada is cheap. It’s unlike Lagos where the price of taxi and okada will make you think twice before going out.

3. Sanity and peace of mind.

Ibadan on a normal day.
Lagos on a normal day.

Put two and two together.

4. Cheaper food.

It’s not a reach to say that N300 can feed you satisfactorily in Ibadan. And this is quality food. But in Lagos? Hmm. God is in control.

5. Trees.

This doesn’t do it enough justice, but honestly, if this tree were to be in Lagos, they would have cut it down and build a face-me-I-slap-you with 8 rooms and 6 shops in its place. By the way, the rooms and shops will share one toilet.

6. In Ibadan, hard working people don’t have to pay tax do giveaway for their state government.

7. And yes, dating in Ibadan is not so chaotic.

If you are not the couple, you could end up as the man with the “God when” face.
