77 people move to Lagos every hour – Report

According to a recent report by Aljazeera, Lagos is home to 22 million people and counting, more than double New York and London’s tally.

The city’s population grows by 77 people every hour as Nigerians from less industrialised regions seek jobs. And as the city grows, so too does demand for housing.

In a country where the minimum wage is about $80 a month and where graduates earn an average of 80,000 naira ($222) a month, renting a house in Lagos is an expensive exercise.

An estimated two-thirds of people in the Lagos metropolis live in informal accommodation or slums.

Some jostle for space in crowded shanties, often built on stilts in water communities where residents live under the threat of eviction or in dilapidated buildings prone to collapse.
