So I follow Kalu Aja on Twitter when last month the ban of milk was placed by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

In that conversation, he mentioned the LAKAJI Corridor. I saw the above image and realised that the map only displayed the information.

The LAgos-KAno-JIbiya (LAKAJI) Corridor is a 1,225 km transport route that runs from the port of Lagos in the Southern part of Nigeria, through the commercial center of Kano, and ending in Jibiya at the border with Niger.

The LAKAJI Corridor has strategic importance for domestic, regional and international trade, as it is the main route for moving imported goods to northern Nigeria, and exports to southern ports.

It wasn’t interactive or dynamic so you couldn’t gain any insights from it.

So I created an interactive map of the LAKAJI Corridor which you can see below.

Mouse over the states in Nigeria or tap on them if you are using a mobile phone.

When you compare it with the static version of the map shown below, you will know why I love SVG.
