General opinion: It is a good but expensive place to stay. Although the indigenous inhabitants make the stay of visiting in-dwellers less-conducive for habitation as a result of the ugly attitude they exhibit. A change of modus for good will make things move more smoothly.

General opinion: It's an enjoyable place, full of fun and talented people, just that we don't have connection to make our dreams into reality. Garden city as it is popularly known as, it's population is high and well erected. I think the Garden city's carnival are the best well known and being attended by people of high status, BIGWIG FOR THAT.

General opinion:  Port Harcourt, or the Garden City as it is popularly known, is the capital of Rivers in western Nigeria. It lies along the Bonny River and is an important national trade port. Port Harcourt is well connected with an international airport and is less than an hour from the Nigerian capital city of Lagos. There is also a well-developed system of roadways and bridges.
Average temperatures in Port Harcourt range from 23°C–33°C. It is cooler between the months of November and March but dustier owing to the presence of dust-carrying winds called Harmatton. Rainfall is exceptionally ... More heavy in June.
The residents of this port city number about 245,000. Today, Port Harcourt is the capital of Nigeria’s blooming oil industry.

General opinion: Port Harcourt is a place one can refer to as home away from home. Port Harcourt is hospitable and full of opportunities, gainful jobs, fast growing city in Nigeria as the people and government are on the same page as development is being embraced... a lot of developmental iniciatives in being explored. Port Harcourt is the first Nigerian city with the advanced rail transport project (on-going); with a porposeful leadership structure.
