Nigeria: Is Nigeria a Noise Factory?
Nigeria: Is Nigeria a Noise Factory? - Abdullahi Mohammed was happy with his new accommodation. Having searched frantically for over six months, he finally secured a two bedroom apartment in Karu site, on the fringes of Abuja, Nigeria's federal capital city. But no sooner had Mohammed settled down to the comfort of his new domicile, than he began to experience a major irritation. "A big generating set was placed directly adjacent my bedroom window, which makes so much noise that it interrupted my sleep. It took the direct intervention of the landlord before the generator was moved to another location, and even at that, the noise was still unbearable. But I had to come to terms with it because; I was not ready to lose the accommodation," he lamented. [AA Urbanisation]
