Top 10 Richest Nigeria States according to the National Bureau of Statistics

Nigeria’s massive oil reserves have been exploited for decades. However, the oil from Nigeria typically comes from just a sub-section of the country and does not account for her total wealth.

Other sectors, even though small in comparison, have done well in generating revenue for the country. The amount generated by other sectors is significant, thanks to the economic contributions of non-oil-producing countries.

The National Bureau of Statistics classified each state on this list based on its Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). Four key indicators determine the MPI: health, education, living standards, work, and shocks.

The information for this report was gathered through a survey that gathered over 50000 responses from a carefully crafted questionnaire across the country.

According to the bureau’s MPI, the following ten Nigerian states are the richest in Nigeria

  • Ondo: 0.095
  • Lagos: 0.101 
  • Abia: 0.101 
  • Anambra: 0.109 
  • Ekiti: 0.125
  • Edo: 0126
  • Imo: 0.142 
  • Osun: 0.150
  • Delta: 01.73 
  • Kwara: 0.185
