Of this population, Metropolitan Lagos
accounts for over 85% on an area
that is 37% of the land area of
Lagos State.

Lagos State has a population density
of about 5,171 persons per sqkm
as at 2008.

Following this trend, and the fact that
Lagos population is growing 10 times
faster than that of New York and
Los Angeles, and more than the
population of 32 African nations combine,
Lagos will become the third global
megacity with a probability of
attaining a population of 24.6 million
in 2015.

Research has shown that many families
in Nigeria, regardless of their ethnic
nationality,are represented in Lagos by
at least a member of the family,

investments with the State GDP put in
N2.156 trillion in 2008.

Regionally, Lagos Gross National Product
(GNP) is three times that of
any West African Country thus making
Lagos State ECOWAS economic hub and
the springboard for innovation and
development in Nigeria and sub-Sahara Africa.

Experience has also shown that

business operations in Lagos before
spreading to other parts of the country
because of the dynamic and demographic
composition of the population of Lagos.

One can then say that
Lagos is the gateway to Nigeria.
