It is important to note that determining the "dirtiest" states in Nigeria can be subjective and dependent on various factors such as population density, waste management practices, and environmental awareness. However, considering some reports and observations, in this post, we will be looking at some of the most dirtiest states in Nigeria. Here, we picked 10 Nigerian states right now that are very dirty and major challenges that causes it.

1. Lagos State

Being Nigeria's most populous state and economic hub, Lagos faces significant challenges in waste management and environmental cleanliness. Rapid urbanization, a large population, and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure contribute to the accumulation of waste on streets and in drainage systems.

2. Rivers State

Rivers State, particularly its capital city of Port Harcourt, has faced significant challenges in waste management. Inadequate waste management practices, illegal waste dumping, and poor sanitation facilities contribute to its reputation as a relatively dirty state.

3. Oyo State

Oyo State, with its capital city of Ibadan, faces challenges in waste management due to its large population and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure. Streets and markets often have visible litter, contributing to its reputation as a relatively dirty state.

4. Enugu State

Enugu State, including its capital city of Enugu, has faced challenges in waste management and environmental cleanliness. Inadequate waste disposal infrastructure, lack of recycling facilities, and poor sanitation practices contribute to its reputation as a relatively dirty state.

5. Imo State

Imo State also faces waste management challenges, particularly in its capital city of Owerri. Inadequate waste disposal facilities and poor sanitation practices contribute to its relatively dirty status.

6. Kano State

Kano State, the most populous state in northern Nigeria, faces waste management challenges due to its large population and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure. Lack of recycling facilities and poor waste management practices contribute to its relatively dirty reputation.

7. Abia State

Abia State, particularly its major city of Aba, has been occasionally labeled as relatively dirty due to its poor waste management practices and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure.

8. Edo State

Edo State faces waste management challenges, particularly in its capital city of Benin. Inadequate waste disposal facilities, illegal waste dumping, and poor sanitation practices contribute to its relatively dirty status.

9. Kaduna State

Kaduna State, one of the most populous states in northern Nigeria, faces waste management challenges due to its large population and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure. Lack of recycling facilities and poor waste management practices contribute to its relatively dirty reputation.

10. Delta State

Delta State, particularly its major city of Warri, faces challenges in waste management and environmental cleanliness. Inadequate waste disposal infrastructure, illegal waste dumping, and poor sanitation practices contribute to its relatively dirty status.

Conclusion

It's important to note that efforts are being made across these states and the country as a whole to improve waste management practices, raise environmental awareness, and promote cleanliness.
