By and large, Ikoyi is a posh neighbourhood with a combination of exquisite residential apartments and commercial presence. Ikoyi is one of the towns that make up the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos and it takes up the eastern half of Lagos Island.
Most of the roads in Ikoyi were constructed in colonial times but thanks to rehabilitation projects of the Lagos State Government, most of the roads are been reconstructed. Other Public infrastructures like electricity supply and potable water cannot be guaranteed but is definitely better than other areas of Lagos. This is not a problem to most residents of this area as they comfortably afford their own boreholes and sound proof generators.
Ikoyi is home to the creme de la creme of the Nigerian society as it residents range from diplomats to senior company, business executives and senior public servants. Ikoyi is a splendid place to live or work in as the neighbourhood offers secure and comfortable accommodation comparable to those in the western world as long as you have the financial arsenal for it.
