The commercial, financial and business center of Lagos and of Nigeria remains the business district of Lagos Island, where most of the country’s largest banks and financial institutions are located. Its progress, development and growth emanate from its dynamism as the nation’s commercial\cultural melting pot in tourism, football, education and from the commendable foresight of successive administrations that have governed the state. Lagos State lies to the south-western part of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the West Coast of Africa. It has one of the largest and most extensive road networks in West Africa.
