    Brief Article About Nigeria World

    Nigerian Flag Map

    Nigeria World is the most populous black nation and by implication the most populous in Africa. According to 2008 census, her population was counted to be about 130 Million. With population growth rate of about 2.4%, the population is estimated to be 180 Million by 2016. One out of every four black persons you meet in the world is probably a Nigerian.

    Population density of Nigeria as at 2008 was 152 persons per square kilometer. Nigeria World comprises over 250 ethnics and languages. Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba and Igbo have about 71% of the population and other ethnic groups take the remaining 29%.

    On the world map, Nigeria Africa has her borders with Benin Republic at the West, Niger at the North and Cameroon and Chad at the East. It has her coast along Atlantic Ocean on the Gulf of Guinea. It is in the western part of Africa. The capital of Nigeria is Abuja. Her largest cities includes Lagos, Ibadan, Kano and Onitsha among others.

    Nigeria adopted colours are green and white as shows by her flag. The Green stands for Agriculture (been the major source of revenue and one time world best producer of cocoa and palm oil) and the White for Peace (being for the coexistence of multiple ethnic groups).

    Nigerian national currency is Naira (₦) and Kobo (K). 100 Kobo make a Naira. The currency is not accepted in world marketplaces like Dollar but it is a strong force in Western Africa. There are 8 major denominations: ₦1000, ₦500, ₦200, ₦100, ₦50, ₦20, ₦10, and ₦5 notes. Other denominations like ₦2, ₦1 and 50K are metal coins and have gone into extinction.

    Officially and among the nations of the world, the country is called Federal Republic of Nigeria. Informally, Nigerians at home and in diaspora refer to her as Naija. The word "Nigeria" official abbreviations are NG and NIG. Some Nigerians, most especially on the internet, shorten it to Nigr.
