Update on the list of the richest cities in Nigeria. When it comes to Africa, one of the countries you can’t afford to ignore, is Nigeria. There are many reasons for this. But one of the reasons why this country is so important is the money in the country. Nigeria is not as rich as countries like Qatar, but to think there isn’t a lot of money in Nigeria, would be nothing other than complete ignorance. In fact, of all countries in Africa, this country has always ranked as the richest or second-richest.
But even though Nigeria has a lot of money, it doesn’t mean all areas in the country are doing well. In Nigeria, we have some areas filled with money as well as areas just struggling. And if you wonder what the top 10 richest cities in Nigeria are, they are namely: Lagos, Port Harcourt, Warri, Ibadan, Owerri, Kano, Benin City, Uyo, Abeokuta, and Kaduna. But even though we have told you the names of the top 10 richest cities in Nigeria, you should consider reading the details we have for you.

Some people may be surprised to find Lagos on this list. The thinking is probably along the line of: but Lagos is a state and not a city. So why would you include Lagos in such a list? Well, a lot of people know Lagos to be the name of a state in Nigeria. But a thing many don’t know is that there’s also an area in Lagos that’s also called Lagos. And this city which is also called Lagos is the heart of the state and the current richest cities in Nigeria.
2. Port Harcourt
Port Harcourt, the richest city in its state, also ranks as one of the richest in the country. If you’ve ever been to the city, you’d have no reason not to believe the wealth of the city.

Warri is another city in the eastern part of Nigeria. This city, just like Port Harcourt, ranks as an oil-producing city. The city has a lot of money, and you can always feel it when you’re in the city.
If you know a lot about Nigeria, one of the places you should know about, is Ibadan. Ibadan is hands-down a very important city in the country, and it also ranks as one of the richest in the country. And aside from being some of the richest, it also happens to be one of the oldest cities in the country. Ibadan ranks as the 4th richest, and we doubt any other city would be overtaking it anytime soon.
Owerri may not be as popular as the cities we have discussed so far, but there’s actually a lot of money in this city. Hardly would you find a person who has been to Owerri and doesn’t believe the city is a rich one. If you’re touring Nigeria, then Owerri is no doubt one of the best places to visit.
There are people who think the northern part of Nigeria is a poor region. Some people think Boko Haram is all they’ve got. But if the truth must be told, this can’t be farther from the truth. Truly, Northern Nigeria is disturbed by Boko Haram, but Kano ranks as one of the richest cities in Nigeria. Kano is so rich that it’s hardly left out when companies discuss the most developed cities in the country.
7. Benin City
Benin City is a popular city in Nigeria, and many people know this. But something a lot of people don’t know is that this city also happens to be one of the richest in the country. Benin city has furthermore been around for a long time. In other words, it’s one of the oldest cities in the country.
Next on our list, is Uyo. Uyo is a city in Akwa Ibom state. In fact, it happens to be the capital of its state. The city has got a lot of money. And aside from having a lot of money, it also ranks as one of the most important states in the country. Uyo furthermore happens to be a great place to visit. In other words, if you’d like to travel around the country, you should probably also make a stop in this city.
Abeokuta is another of the richest cities in Nigeria. This city is pretty close to Lagos. In fact, it happens to be in between Ibadan and Lagos. In other words, it’s safe to say Lagos and Ibadan have significantly contributed to the wealth of the city. Abeokuta furthermore happens to be a great place to have fun.
Kaduna, just like Lagos and Kano, is the name of a state as well as a city. And the city called Kaduna ranks as the 10th richest in the country. Kaduna also ranks as one of the places worthwhile of being visited. And for those scared of Boko Haram, this city is not really part of the areas tormented by the insurgent group. However, Kaduna sometimes drops below this position. So we wouldn’t be surprised if Kaduna gets replaced by another city.
