Hello Janni, if you are looking to coming to lagos for instance, I recommend living in Lekki or Victoria Island.

hi, dont know if this is the correct place to ask. but I found that there are accomodations available for 70,000 USD per year as well as 5M Naira per year for similar area properties. Why such a vast difference?

hello Janni, what I can say is that I strongly recommend you to avoid Ikeja, I used to stay there once during my business trip and that was a total mess(((((((
