The Underrated Cotonou (benin Republic) / Road Permits: Traveller Complains Of Having To Get Over 80 From Delta To Anambra / Meet Ajala The Traveller: A Nigerian Traveller Who Toured The World On A Vespa (2) (3) (4)
|Traveller To Cotonou Benin Republic Needs Advice by joshuapharm(m): 10:13pm On Apr 28, 2021|
So I'm one of those like you who is tired of Nigeria and very scared of a war breaking out so I want to move to a neighboring country until I'm able to sort out my UK admission.
So I have two options in mind, Ghana and Benin republic.
But I chose Benin republic because of its proximity to my house in Abeokuta, cheap rent and constant power.
Tonight, my mum called someone she knows in benin republic and the person said Cotonou isn't safe because of some post election violence.
1. How true is it that cotonou isn't safe.
2. How can I get there from Abeokuta?
3. What's the best place to get accomodation apart from Airbnb?
4. What other neighboring country can one visit apart from Benin and Ghana?

If Benin Republic isn't safe, that just shows you only God can really protect you wherever you are...
Regardless, you may go to Accra, it's a nice place to be as long as u lay low and live within the law. All the best.

Op, l live very close to Benin republic infact am just 15 minutes drive from the border, with relatives living there, the truth is: Benin republic is a very safe and very organized country, and I don't think election is a do or die affair in Benin, I bet, you are 100% safe there. And you can get accomodation at very cheap price depending on the are area you chose to stay
Direction: From abeokuta navigate to agbara, don't go to iyanaba that is too long, once at agbara, just get a bus going to Badagry or seme border if you have the international passport pass through ecowas direct you wouldn't have problem the immigration officers, but if you don't have international passport take bike across through back way.
Other country:Togo is closer to Benin republic than Ghana you have to pass through Togo before getting to Ghana.

Thank you so much for your response. It warmed my heart. But please for the sake of God, I need help with accomodation. I want to stay for 3 months, how much should I budget, who can I talk to and what should I look out for when searching?
Thank you so much.

Accomodation: you can have 5k per month for a single room depending on the location, and once you are in you can easily talk to someone we have many Nigerians living there.
