Nigeria is a nightmare.
Regarding standards in other countries, I once asked a friend of mine, who was an international salesman for large earth-moving equipment, what was the worst place he had ever visited. Without blinking, he said Lagos, Nigeria.When I asked why, he replied "Well, Zoonie, if I tell you that when I arrived there had been an accident on the road from the airport and the driver of one car was slumped dead over the steering wheel. When I returned to the airport 3 days later, the car and its driver were still there!"
If an injured or dead person doesn't have family or means to pay for an ambulance then that's it.
Thailand during the real heavy monsoon amazes me. Main junction boxes magnificently explode due to lack of insulation.
Nevertheless outages are solved fairly quickly.
It's Pattaya drainage which is the big concern.
