Lagos

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Horizontal Divider 6

Lagos (pron. IPA: [ˈleɪgɒs], or IPA: [ˈlɑːgəʊs] overseas) is the most populous city in Nigeria and indeed Africa (depending on the definition) and one of the ten most populous cities in the world. Lagos city is a huge metropolis with its population spread along the Nigerian coastline and upon the islands to the southwest that form an archipelago just off the mainland.

There is a school of thought insisting that Lagos is not a single city as popularly indicated, but rather an amalgamation of several lesser towns and smaller settlements into a greater Lagos metropolis. Historically, the name Lagos referred to the smaller island city that is popularly and locally known as Eko. The mainland, on the other hand, comprised several separate towns and settlements such as Ikeja, Surulere, and Mushin. In the wake of the 1970s Nigerian oil boom, Lagos experienced a population explosion, untamed economic growth, and unmitigated rural migration. This caused the outlying towns and settlements to develop rapidly, thus forming the greater Lagos metropolis seen today. The history of Lagos is still evidenced in the layout of the local governments which display the unique identities of the cultures that established them.

Today, the word Lagos most often refers to the metropolitan areas which include both the Island and mainland suburbs of Lagos State. Lagos has grown from a small Yoruba city-state , and undergone periods of domination by two European powers, to become the commercial and population center of Nigeria. As only two censuses (in 1972 and 1991) have been taken since independence, estimates of its population vary considerably, but generally range from 12 to 18.5 million people,[citation needed] making it one of the two most populous cities in Africa along with Cairo.

Lagos is also the former capital city of Nigeria; it has since been replaced by Abuja. Abuja city officially gained its status as the capital of Nigeria on 12 December 1991, although the decision to move the federal capital had been made in decree no. 6 of 1976.
