Lagos, the most populous city in Nigeria as well as the whole of Africa, is a huge metropolis in the south-west. It used to be the capital before that title was given to Abuja. The city has three major islands: Ikoyi, Victoria and the main Lagos Island which is linked to the other two islands by bridges.
The hottest month is March; the coolest, July. There are two rainy seasons: the heavier one from April to July and the lighter one from October to November. Dusty Harmattan winds are prominent in the dry season from November to March. On an average, the daytime temperature is around 25°C.
With a population of around 15 million people, Lagos is Nigeria’s administrative and economic centre, with all financial institutions and the Nigerian film industry ‘Nollywood’ being centred here. It is also the chief port of Nigeria.
