Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency.
Africa's giant, Nigeria is widely known for its petroleum production and exportation as a major source of the nation's economy accounting for about 95% of foreign exchange income and 70% of government revenue. This black nation remains the largest oil producer in Africa and the 12th largest producer in the world.
Nigeria is home to over 250 ethnic groups, with over 500 languages, and the variety of customs, and traditions among them gives the country great cultural diversity. The three largest ethnic groups are the Hausa 27.4% of the population; along with the Yoruba 21% and Igbo 14.1%.
Nigeria. Nigeria is not a developed country by any reasonable measure. The country's per capita gross domestic product (GDP) is much too low, as are the country's living standards. Industrialization in Nigeria lags behind all the countries upon which universal agreement of developed status exists.
The reasons for their underdevelopment are numerous, ranging from, poverty, political instability, corruption, externally oriented economy, ethnicity, conflicts, weak states, poor leadership e. t. c.
The constitution defines Nigeria as a democratic secular state. ... It thereafter alternated between democratically elected civilian governments and military dictatorships until it achieved a stable democracy in 1999, with the 2011 presidential election considered the first to be reasonably free and fair.
Rural population (% of total population) in Nigeria was reported at 49.66 % in 2018, according to the World Bank collection of development indicators, compiled from officially recognized sources.
The rural-urban divide is a challenge in Nigeria as it is in countries across the world. According to the World Bank, in 1960 85% of Nigerians lived in rural areas. Today less than 50% do.
What are the political problems in Nigeria?
Economics of corruption.
Nigeria is a great nation with lot of blessed resources but despite this the country is still where it is today due to bad governance and corrupt leadership.
the citizens are also corrupt to some extent and are allowed to be used as thuggery in election which they in turn collect bribes to boycott election.
if all this continue for another 50 years then i don't see Nigeria developing in the next 50 years
this is my opinion
