Living in Nigeria
Nigeria is located in West Africa and borders Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger. It features a coastline in its south west, lying on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean. It has a varied landscape, with tropical rainforest, mangroves and savanna. It is one of the only places in the world where the drill monkey lives in the wild, making it an important habitat. It is the most populous country in Africa and seventh in the world, with 186 million people; this factor makes it known as the Giant of Africa, combined with its large economy, the 20th largest in the world, and the largest in Africa. It has a diverse economy, with a good supply of natural resources, developed financial, legal, communication and transport sectors, as well as a large stock exchange. Agriculture has been in the past a big earner for Nigeria, but the growing population means it has to import much of its food, meaning industries such as oil, mining and services have taken over. Demographically, Nigeria is home to over 500 ethnic groups, so it is incredibly diverse in terms of culture, making it attractive to tourists when combined with the beautiful landscape. The city of Lagos is becoming a major tourist destination and working towards global city status; it is known for black cultural identity and many festivals are held representing this and celebrating black heritage.
