With these figure I can't imaging the nation still having 70% of its population living below poverty level.

The overwhelming majority of Nigeria’s poverty is in Northern Nigeria.

Even the disturbing disease and literacy statistics of northern Nigeria offsets the rather pleasing combined southern figures. With their land mass and majority population, they really make the country look bad in the books. They would remain so if they don't get rid of their religious extremism.

Anyone thinking Lagos is not part of the South West is either

1. Not Nigerian

2. Nigerian but doesn't know much about its geo-political make up

3. Just dillusional

It's the same reality in Abuja, over 70% of all the property there is owned by the South-Eastern Region.

What you need to look at is Per Capita, HDI and unemployment figures. South-South & South-East have the lowest poverty rates & highest Per Capita scores, which means they enjoy the highest standards of living, this despite the South-South’s poor HDI score due to oil degradation.

Poverty Rates (A little outdated, I know poverty in South West has improved to 40, whereas South East has improved to 19 percent)

Zone 1980 1985 1992 1996 2004
South South 13.2 45.7 40.8 58.2 35.1
South East 12.9 30.4 41.0 53.5 26.7
South West 13.4 38.6 43.1 60.9 43.0
North Central 32.2 50.8 46.0 64.7 67.0
North East 35.5 54.9 54.0 70.1 72.2
North West 37.7 52.1 36.5 77.2 71.2
The Indigenous people of Lagos are the same people essentially as anywhere else in the South West. History tells us that.

The Northern parts of the country are just increasing the population without engaging development. That's a very bad thing to do.

I meant from an economical standpoint. Lagos is a multi ethnic state. The GDP of Lagos is split across all ethnic groups in the country.

If Lagos was to form part of a new Yoruba Nation, this reality would manifest itself in a high gini coefficient score.

I was referring to economics. I didn’t mean literally.

I heard religion extremism is very high out there in the North.There a whole to bedone in the Northern parts of the country, from educating the increasing illitrates to providing infrastruture to speed up development. What is the GDP of the whole Northern states grouped together?
