Its high in all terms. Be it house rentals, food, schooling, transportation which does not exist virtually except owned transport for EXPATs, medical cost is high, Friendly insurance does not exist. Fewer international schools. Communication cost is high. Logistics are on very high side. No service centers for several house hold items to repair them properly.

All this can improve if Federal Government invites and appoint advisers in their respective ministries to suggest better ways forward. Nigeria is a good place with good people.

It can improve multifold in next 2 to 3 years provided right approach and attitude is taken by FG.
