More info

Lagos has not been the capital of Nigeria since 1976. The country’s seat of government is now Abuj. This new city sited in an area where none of Nigeria’s three principal ethnicities is dominant; it is also free of the legendary traffic jams of Lagos. However, the former capital remains the country’s largest city, second only to Cairo in all of Africa. Officially it houses 9 million inhabitants, but some experts estimate the actual population to be 12 to 15 million. Like all large and rapidly growing urban centers, Lagos is overwhelmed by demographic expansion. The population influx aggravates traffic problems whose monstrous tie-ups Nigerians soberly refer as “Go slows.” Wherever vehicles come to a halt, young people appear out of nowhere hawking small everyday goods: cakes, drinks, Q-tips. Disparities in income are glaring in this city, where having your own car is an overt sign of success. Countless buses and collective taxis, known as molue and danfo, cruise the city. Inhabitants of Lagos use them to go to work or to market. Since 2008, the authorities have been trying to cope with traffic problems by instituting a system of fast lanes reserved for buses.
