Africa will never let you down! Just check out our Africa Category to know what I’m talking about!

Let’s get back to the big guy, Nigeria!

Recent history of Nigeria

In recent history, Nigeria was a part of Britain’s African colonies until October 1, 1960, when it declared independence.

Nigeria has always had a hard time uniting its people because no tribe or religion is the majority and even some tribes like to become a sovereign state (Especially in the oil reserve areas).

People in Nigeria

Nigerian people are mostly of African tribes, living in specific areas (Except for Lagos and a few other major cities).

They all speak English as the country’s official language and have 3 other major languages, used by the largest tribes.

Half of the population is Christian, whereas the other half is Muslim (Christians are about %1 more) and there’s even a Jewish community called Igbo that’s believed to be Israel’s lost tribe in West Africa.

What to do in Nigeria

      1. Hello. This is a very nice and informative post about Nigeria, kudos! However, in the in the third subheading you said “Nigerians are mostly made up of African tribes”. Unless you’re being generic, I would advice you refer to ethnicities in Nigeria as “Nigerian Ethnicities”

        1. You are right, but in this series of posts, the main goal was to represent unknown countries to the westerners, but most people usually don’t read the tribes names and aren’t familiar with African ethnicities, then it’s better to take tiny steps first, and then get into deeper details gradually, but I totally get your point and apologize if it’s not as accurate.

          1. Oh no need to apologise. I understand where you’re coming from. I followed the blog because you have amazing content.
