    Surprisingly, the state with the smallest land mass among the 36 States including the federal capital territory is Lagos State.

    Ironically, it doubles as the most popular state in Nigeria and also the smallest state in Nigeria. Also, some of the largest states in land mass are very low in the popularity index.

    Lagos State is located in the south-Western part of Nigeria and sits on a land mass of about 3,345 kmsq thereby making it the state with the smallest land mass. As the rumors goes, small but mighty, Lagos State is the commercial hub of Africa. It houses one of the biggest market in Nigeria, a tourist destination and a land of many tribes, religion and people.

    It was formally the capital of Nigeria and it is occupied originally by the Yorubas who outside trade are predominantly farmers and fishermen as a result of there closness to the Atlantic ocean.

    There are other ethnic groups in Lagos state like the Igbos, Ebo, efik and many others.

    The state with the smallest land mass in Nigeria is Lagos state, I know it came as a surprise but yes Lagos state has the smallest land mass in Nigeria of about 3,345kmsq, there are local government in other states that come close to those numbers. 😀

    Despite this small land mass Lagos state has the highest population in Nigeria, it is unarguably the most civilized state, the most industrious state (almost all the well developed industries are in Lagos state), the richest state(that is where Nigeria generates most of its revenue from), its the busiest state, it has most of the major seaports and airports in Nigeria.

    This state can be said to be the commercial nerve of the country and the hub for several startups in the country.

    The economy of Lagos state is so strong that it could stand should to shoulder with some African countries. It is one of richest cities in Africa and it is well known all over the world compared to other Nigerian States.
