note: numbering of LGA's by geohive; those with an 'x' in front are former LGA's or LGA's now part of another province.
note: Area is 909,890 sq.km. of land area and 13,879 sq.km. of water area.
note: Bayelsa was split off from Rivers; Ebonyi from Abia and Enugu; Ekiti from Ondo; Gombe from Bauchi; Nasarawa from Plateau; and Zamfara from Sokoto.
note: FCT = Federal Capital Territory.
note: Yala LGA in Cross River State had according to the source a population of 1,566,177 in 1991, as that seems a bit much, the number has been adjusted to 156,599 so the total of the LGA's line up with the State's total.
