Lagos to overtake Cairo as Africa’s biggest city - UN
According to a United Nations report, the UN-Habitat’s State of African Cities 2010 report, in five years, Lagos, Nigeria’s former capital, will overtake the Egyptian capital Cairo as Africa’s biggest city.
The report also says the number of people living in African cities will triple over the next 40 years and by 2050 60% of Africans will be city dwellers. It also says that urbanisation is happening faster in Africa than anywhere else in the world and by 2030 the continent will no longer be predominately rural.
Go Lagos!!! Go Africa!!!
