Population And Geographical Area
Amuwo Odofin is one of the 57 Local Government Councils that make up Lagos State , which was created out of the old Amuwo Odofin Local Government on 27 th October, 2003. It covers land mass of 100q.km, divided into two distinct geographical spheres of Upland and Riverine areas. For political expediency, the Local Government is divided into three geo-political zones, that is, the Riverine, the Middle Belt and the Upper Belt. The Riverine area comprises Towns and Villages such as Tomaro, Ilado, Okun Glass, Sankey, Igbo Alejo, Igbologun etc.

The middle belt begins with the Local Government boundary adjacent to Apapa Local Government through the Tincan Coconut area, Beach-land Estate.

The Upper belt comprises Amuwo Odofin Estate, Raji Rasaki Estate, Amuwo Odofin New Town, Festac Town , Abule Ado, Trade-fair Complex among others. The Local Government, with a population of over 1,500,000 according to the 2006 Census shares its boundaries with Ajeromi and Ifelodun Local Government in the East, Oriade Local Government in the West, the Badagry Creek to the South and Isolo/Igando Local Government to the North.

History of a Amuwo Odofin Local Government
The indigenous dwellers of Amuwo Local Government are mainly the Aworis. Nonetheless, considering its location as a near border Local Government, International trade has found its root in the area with people of various extractions engaging in various forms of trading activities.

It must also be stated that the hospitality of the people has also attracted people from other ethnic tribes in Nigeria as well as from neighbouring West African States to the area.

Another noticeable group is the retired and serving Civil Servants, industrialists and members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria who have taken advantages of the serene atmosphere of the Estates located in the Local Government to reside in the area.

Culture and Tradition
The culture and tradition of Amuwo cannot be separated from those of the indigenous dwellers of the Aworis. Some of the festivals embraced by the people are Elegba, Oro, Sangbeto and Igunuko festivals.

The culture reflects an affinity with the Badagry people, since the council area is located within the same State delineated geo-political zone as them.

The custodians of culture and tradition in the area are the traditional rulers. The Local Government is blessed with highly reputable Obas and Chiefs and Baales. This includes Oba Mobadenle Obalade Oyekan- the Onilado of Ilado/Inagbe Islands and Oba Lateef Olayinka Ado, Fabuwa 1, Alado of Ado Land.

Commerce and Industry
The Local Government boasts of enterprising people. However, it should be noted that the indigenous are agrarian and engage mostly in fishing and production of crops such as cassava, maize, coconuts and cashew nuts.

Some parts of the Local Government are zoned as industrial estates by the Lagos State Government. The Local Government is making attempts to construct shopping complexes in collaboration with private entrepreneurs.

Commercial activities are well grounded in the Local Government area. This is made possible by such factors as adequate security, good roads-network, ready market and a generally conducive atmosphere which is prevalent in the area.

Community Development and Youth Empowerment:
One channel through which the Local Government has effectively disseminated its development activities to the people is through the Community Development Associations (C.D.As). They serve as the link between the government through the provision of social amenities, security-through organized vigilantes etc.

There are twenty seven Community Development Associates operating within Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area. The Local Government has also been using the Youth organizations in the Local Government as a veritable tool for development and Youth Empowerment.
