Alimosho is a Local Government Area in the Ikeja Division, Lagos State, Nigeria. It is the largest local government in Lagos, with 1,288,714 inhabitants, according to the official 2006 Census (however, the Lagos State Government disputes the official Census figures and claims a population within the LGA of more than 2 million residents).

It has now been subdivided into several Local Community Development Areas (LCDA). The LCDA restructuring kicked off after the administration of Bola Ilori, who was the last chairman of the old single Alimosho Local Government. The six sub-divisions created out of the old Alimosho are: Agbado/Oke-odo LCDA, Ayobo/Ipaja LCDA, Alimosho LG, Egbe/Idimu LCDA, Ikotun/Igando LCDA and Mosan Okunola LCDA. The LGA contains the urban area of Egbeda/Akowonjo.

The Alimosho was established in 1945 and it was under the (then) western region. Alimosho’s population is predominantly Egbados. The area is rich in culture, prominent amongst which are the Oro, Igunnu, and Egungun annual festivals. The two main religions are Islam and Christianity. The Yoruba language is widely spoken in the community.

The first secretariat of Alimosho is a two-story building located on Council street, now in the Egbe/Idimu LCDA.

Infrastructure and demographics

After the 1960 independence from Great Britain, there were large migrations to the suburban areas. This led to intensive overcrowding. As a result, poor sanitation and inadequate housing lead to poor living conditions. However, since the rise of industrialization in Nigeria, Mushin has become one of the largest beneficiaries of the industrial expansion. Their local commercial enterprises include spinning and weaving of cotton, shoe manufacturing, bicycle, and motorized-cycle assembly, along with the production of powdered milk. Once a staple source of revenue in Nigeria, agriculture is also a large central market.

The town is home to a hospital as well educational facilities reaching the secondary school level. Mushin lies at the intersection of roads from Lagos, Shomolu, and Ikeja. Most of its inhabitants are from the Yoruba tribe and as a result, Yoruba is the most common language spoken.

When the kola nut plantations in the Agege area started to flourish it attracted huge settlements. Agege experienced rapid development and became a powerful center of the kola nut trade. These settlements attracted different people of different backgrounds and interests such as laborers, and most of these were Hausa. Whenever the Yorubas needed laborers for jobs such as cutting trees, they would engage the services of the Hausa people. Because of this work the immediate area where the Hausas lived was named ‘Ilu Awon Ageigi’ which translates as ‘Town (Ilu) of the tree cutters’. The name Agege was thus formed out of the word Aging.
