The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has said that the state will continue to face the influx of people from other states of the federation because their states failed economically.

The governor who said this at the 75th Anniversary Business Lecture of the Island Club in Lagos yesterday, disclosed that at least 87 people enters the state per hour daily with no plan of leaving.


He lamented that these has put pressure on the physical and infrastructural system of the state which cannot meet the demand.

In his lecture: “Nation Building: Communities, Inclusion and Prosperity,” the governor said that if the country must get out of the woods, it must begin to take concrete steps towards empowering every group in the society and end extreme poverty.

Ambode said that the population of the state is currently 24 million people, adding that at the rate it is growing, it may hit the 34 million mark in the next 10 years, a situation which will make it one of the five largest cities in the world.


“We believe that every Lagosian must have the opportunity to grow, develop their own skills and contribute to their families and communities in a meaningful way.

“If they are healthy, well educated and trained to enter the workforce and are able to make a decent wage, they are better equipped to meet their basic needs and be successful. Their families will also do well and the whole society will benefit. The aggregate sum of family well-being is the meat for nation building,” he said.
