Lagos will become Africa’s 3rd largest economy before I die – Former Nigerian President

Former Nigerian President,

Olusegun Obasanjo, said

yesterday that Lagos will

become Africa’s third largest

economy in a very short time.

Mr. Obasanjo made this

known at the launch of a book

titled, “Making Africa Work”,

co-authored by the former

president and three others.

The other authors are Greg

Mills, Director of Brenthurst

Foundation; Jeffrey Herbst,

President of NEWSEUM, and

Dickie Davis, a retired Major-

General.

The former president said

the Lagos State Government is

working towards making the

state an economic hub, which

he jocularly said would come to

fruition before he passes on.

Obasanjo, who is the

Chairman of Brenthurst

Foundation, disclosed that

plans are underway for the

foundation and the state

government to make Lagos the

third largest economy on the

continent.

“Even though people say I

look like someone who is in

the departure lounge, Lagos

will become the third largest

economy before I take my

boarding pass.”
