hi Shivang, you're right in saying that Lagos is an expensive city. Whether this salary is enough to sustain you (and your family, if you're taking them with you) will largely depend on your lifestyle and personal expenses - for an idea of what you can expect to pay for your basic goods adn services, have a look at our Cost of Living in Nigeria page, which is based on prices in Lagos.
