According to an interview conducted, 30 out of 50 residents in Port Harcourt spend 30% of their annual income on rent alone. This is too high considering the economic conditions in the country. This rents should be reviewed by appropriate authorities and stakeholders for the benefit of the greater masses.

Enjoy the best houses. Live your live the way you want. Be happy. Don’t suffer yourself. Life is too short to live in the dark and in sub-standard houses. Get the best house for yourself but don’t let its cost affect you negatively.

    i assume that these lists are just best case scenarios right?….so the prices are actually fair, if you have the money of course, but to those of us that do not, i think the government should look into it to make ph people comfortable…but of course that will only happen in another universe or in my dreams….
