Lagos State is a Category A State among the state governments in Nigeria.

The State is also a Top 5 economy in Africa and continues to attract a wide range of regional and global businesses. Underpinning the State's strong economy is its robust internally generated revenue ("IGR") which continues to grow year-on-year and remains resilient despite macroeconomic headwinds and disruptions caused by the global pandemic. The State's IGR accounts for c.65% of its revenue.
Lagos State respectfully and responsibly continues to access the domestic debt capital markets, and is very grateful of the strong support garnered over the last thirteen (13) years from the investor community. The State has been able to access much needed complementary funding, which augments the State's revenues and provides the critical support required to accelerate and actualize the provision of physical and social infrastructure/amenities, thus improving the overall living standards of residents in the State. The proceeds of the Issuance will enable Lagos State further accelerate the development of physical and social infrastructure in the State in line with the State's THEME Agenda.
