After all the work Governor Babatunde Fashola put into making Lagos a lot more better than what it was in years past, a Yahoo travel writer has named the city “the absolute worst place on earth to visit”!!!

Lee Abbamonte is the youngest American to visit all 193 countries in the United Nations and he has just named our beloved Lagos – worst place in the world to visit!

Here’s what he had to say about Lagos,

As far as I am concerned, Lagos, Nigeria, is the worst place on planet Earth. I’ve never experienced so much corruption in my life. It was just a horrific experience getting into the country. Crossing in from Benin, we got shaken down by the border guards. In addition to the multiple police shakedowns, the multiple ATM issues were enough for me; three times in two days, the machines dispensed the wrong amount of money. It was oppressive and hot. I couldn’t tell you one good thing about that place.

He used a picture of a shanty town on the island to prove his point that Lagos is a shitty place! Now all these Americans are going to think all Nigerians live in run down shanty towns! What about our night life? our food? our fashion? Western media stays trying to depict Africa asa place inhabited by animals.
