    The richest state in Nigeria is Lagos State, Internally generated revenue in Lagos state alone is bigger than that from some five northern states combined.

    All States in Nigeria has different peculiarities, what makes them unique from other is just internally generated revenue, federal allocation is still part of it but it hasn’t done so much for Akwa Ibom state. Granted, Akwa Ibom has done pretty amazing in the last few years but it is nowhere near the achievements recorded in Lagos state, Nigeria.

    The richest state in Nigeria is unarguably Lagos State. Lagos State is found on the south Western region of Nigeria near the Atlantic ocean. The predominantly dominated by the yorubas which are the original owners of the land but I doubt if that would be the same in the near future as the high influx of business and development has made Lagos a mixed tribe.

    Lagos is the richest state in Nigeria because of it’s high index in internally generated revenue which arises from both local and international trade, inland and cargo port, tourism and hospitality,manufacturing industries,crude oil, etc.

    Among all these mentioned, local and international trade on goods and services generates more revenue for the state which keeps them at a better advantage than other states who mostly depend on crude generated revenue. If u are looking for a business destination in Nigeria, pack your bags and go to Lagos state, Nigeria.
