Nigeria By: GABRIEL DAVIS

The terrain in Nigeria is a Southern lowland that merges into central hills and plateaus. They have plains in the North and mountains in the Southeast. It is nearly six times the size of Georgia!

Nigeria is Africa's most populous country with about 186 million people living there, and over 250 ethnic groups. As a whole population they are expected to live about 53 years compared to the US which is about 79 years.
A Little Bit About The People: In Nigeria 50% of the people are Muslim, 40% are Christian, and the last 10% indigenous. Most of the people here speak english which is their official language. The woman in this country tend to wear the traditional kaba or buba and the men wear a buba or fila.
The capital of Nigeria is Abuja and is located in the middle of Nigeria. The ruler of Nigeria is Muhammadu Buhari, and he runs a federal presidential republic. This is the currency compared to our US dollar. 1 Nigerian Naira equals 0.0032 US Dollars.
What I have found is that there seems to be a good amount of corruption in their government. One main problem is that there are pirates with guns who will take over big oil tankers. But they are usually not caught because the government is either afraid of them or possibly being bribed by some of them.
The Abuja National Mosque, also known as the Nigerian National Mosque, is the national mosque of Nigeria. This is also a very high spot for tourist to go and visit especially if you are muslim.
