Amazing facts about Nigeria.

Hello guys, am so happy to say that I am a qualified citizen of Nigeria by birth and naturalization. So today, it’s all about my country.

Nigeria, Peace, Hand, Nation, Background

The Federal Republic of Nigeria , commonly referred to as Nigeria, is a Federal republic in West Africa, bordering Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north. Its coast in the south lies on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic ocean. It comprises 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, where the capital, Abuja is located. A brief about Nigeria.

Lagos, Nigeria.

Nigeria is my home, there is no other country like Nigeria, in Nigeria we are blessed by God the creator, the country is blessed with so many natural resources and with fertile lands, our harvest is always plentiful, right said, Nigeria is a developing country and it is developing quite fast. Nigeria is a democratic country, so we speak our minds and elect our leaders through voting.

Ever since the tenure of Mr president, Nigeria has been going through some changes  which is affecting us all but it’s all for the better(part of the development), Mr president is really working hard to make sure that Nigeria becomes a better and a joyful place to be, both for the tourists and her citizens.

The people of Nigeria are good and generous people, there are many places of explorations for tourists in Nigeria. In Nigeria greeting is a sign of respect for one another, so we do greet in passing each other. The education system in Nigeria is sound and Nigeria has produced many qualified professionals in their field.

Great people of Nigeria.

In Nigeria there are many tribes but there are three main tribes in Nigeria being Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba of which I am from the Igbo tribe. In Igbo land, our culture is highly practiced (though some are fading away). Some of the Igbo foods are, Egusi soup, Ogbono soup, Utara, otipiri, okpa and so many others(they are very delicious).

Great Igbo

The Igbo People occupy South Eastern and parts of South-Southern Nigeria which has states such as Anambra, Enugu, Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Delta North and Rivers.  Igbo itself doesn’t represent any particular group but it is an umbrella term for all Igboid groups such as Mbaise, Ika, Aniocha, Ikwerre(disputed), Orlu, etc. Igbos are highly creative and technocratic in Nature. They do well in business and technology. They have a strong family bond and every successful member of a family becomes the succor for others. Igbo traditional system is modelled after the Benin system. They usually have an Eze or Igwe who is either elected, is the oldest elder in the community or is inherited from father.
