List of States in Nigeria according to their GDP



First and foremost we should understand what we mean by GDP. GDP means Gross Domestic Product, which means that a country’s GDP is assessed based on the value of economic activity within the country.

It is used to examine market values or prices of final goods and services manufactured in a country within a given or specific period of time. It also indicates the worth of the output of a country’s local currency.

What makes up the GDP of a country is net export, investments, government spending, and personal consumption.

However, a high GDP means that the economy of that country is progressing while a low GDP means that the economy of that country is declining.

As of 2019, Nigeria’s GDP was at $446.543 billion.
