Mobility - June 2020 - 54

DESTINATION PROFILE: LAGOS

Families and Living
Most expatriate families in Nigeria choose to send
their children to one of the many international private
schools available. Most follow the British, American,
French, or International Baccalaureate system.
International schools are costly, and places are in
demand. Therefore, it is important to start the school
search early in the relocation process and factor costs
and logistics into planning, aligning timelines with the
school year when possible.
While the official language is English, 520-plus languages are spoken in Nigeria, the most common being
Igbo, Yoruba, Ijaw, Fulfulde, Ogoni, and Edo. Nigeria
is a religiously diverse society, with Christianity and
Islam being the most widely observed. Traditional
African religions make up about 1%.

Football (soccer) is the national sport,
and the Super Eagles, the national team, are
highly ranked among African countries and
internationally.
Lagos offers several shopping malls with a mix
of local and international stores. Large supermarket chain stores such as Shoprite and Spar stock a
wide variety of fresh produce and other groceries. Everything you need can be found there,
but the brands may be unfamiliar. As far as local
restaurants go, Nigerian cuisine is known for its
richness and variety and is spicy and aromatic.
The climate is tropical, with a distinct wet and
dry season, hot and humid most of the year, with
rainforests, wetlands, and savanna.
