Lagos city’s so congested and overcrowded that it always causes traffic in certain popular streets. While natives from rural regions continuously flock in the city for better economic opportunities and for better life style, they’ve recognized the economical potential of Nigeria’s biggest cities.
Nigeria economy has overtaken South Africa and it has become Africa’s largest economy. Yet Lagos is getting overcrowded year by year and it’s alarming. Nigeria’s problem is the world’s problem; analysts have predicted that by 2030, certain overpopulated nations will fall short of fresh water, overpopulation massively increases global worming; more people and so more carbon dioxide get released while more cows emits more methane to the sky.
