With a record number of hotels, casinos and other entertainment centres, Owerri has a moderate case for nightlife.
Why would Enugu not be beautiful? It is the capital of the State—Enugu State. It is natural for places with hilly landscape to be beautiful as the topography alone is a beauty by nature and Enugu has enough hilly areas and it explains why the name is derived from Énú Ụ́gwụ́, which means hill top.

4. Port Harcourt
Port Harcourt is the capital of River State. It goes without saying that Port Harcourt is really a beautiful city; it is even a popular believe. And it is no doubt given to the commercial activities of the city. I kid you not, places abuzz with commercial activities usually have the most beautiful buildings and that’s as a result of the infrastructure of companies and firms. Port Harcourt also boasts of airports and sea ports.
Kaduna is in Kaduna State and it’s the State’s capital. Remember what we said about a place that is a hub of commerce? Kaduna is a perfect example of a commercial centre. It boasts of such things as airports, which by the way are 2, restaurants, malls and even a polo club!
Lagos is more than a city; it’s a state and it is a very, very beautiful place. There is nothing expected of a modern society that is not in Lagos – talk about tall buildings, roads, clubs, religious places, airports, seaports, anything. Lagos is where most Nollywood films are shot, where most music videos are recorded. Lagos has many sandy beaches, countless 5-star hotels and clubs, amazing parks, and is home to the popular Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA).
And nightlife in Lagos? Perfect!
Abuja is where power resides and you shouldn’t expect anything short of amazing! This is the capital of Nigeria herself, The Federal Capital Territory. It is unarguably the most beautiful city in Nigeria.
There’s nothing you won’t find in Abuja, including the powers that be.
