Lagos Vs Abuja - Which City Is The Most Tech Savvy In Nigeria


When It comes to Technology in Nigeria, different states usually show off their tech talents at different events and hackathons. However in this post I'll be comparing two cities, Lagos & Abuja.
I'm based in neither of the cities so I can give you an honest comparison.

So the question now is Lagos Vs Abuja - Which City Is The Most Tech Savvy In Nigeria?

Of course if you ask me I'll definitely say it's Lagos. Lagos is unarguably Nigeria's technology hub. Virtually every smartphone company and technology brand has a branch or a head office in Lagos. 

Yabatech Graduates are doing exploits in Lagos, boys in computer village are selling boxes of soap as smartphones(lol..) to unsuspecting buyers in computer village and programming teams like Andela have their HQ in Lagos.

I'll be honest, all the smartphone launch events I've heard of are usually hosted in Lagos not in Abuja. I'll say Abuja is just like every other city in the country but like Lagos it still has an aura of authority in the Tech Industry. 

Brands tend to use Abuja as an alternative to Lagos . If a major tech event doesn't hold in Lagos, it is usually moved to Abuja .

Lagos stands tall above all states as the undisputed King of Technology and has been unchallenged for decades. Although Abuja is still developing in the Technology field , I doubt if it'll ever beat Lagos because most Tech start ups usually prefer starting their business in Lagos before expanding to other states.

Most brands tend to give Lagos preferential treatment. I've reached out to a couple of brands in the past and they requested that I come to Lagos for the deal to be concluded. I can't recall anytime I've been asked to come to Abuja.

Nevertheless, Abuja is a city full of opportunity and a lot of places haven't been explored yet. It's a goldmine waiting to be tapped.

On that note, I'm pretty sure you'd love to know about how to get a cheap flight and affordable  flight from Lagos to Abuja
