Nigeria has 774 Local Government Areas, 6 in Abuja (Federal Capital Territory) and the other ones (768) in the 36 States of the country.

Nigeria’s federal system is structured into three tiers: federal (central), state, and local government. These local governments play a significant role in ensuring the delivery of basic services and governance to the local communities they represent.

While Kano and Lagos have the largest number of Local government Areas in Nigeria Bayelsa and Ebonyi have the least.
