WEST AFRICA: NIGERIA Capital: Largest city: Languages: Demonym: Currency: Calling code: Abuja Lagos English Nigerian Naira (NGN) +234 The Federal Republic of Nigeria is a federal constitutional republic comprising 36 states and its Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The country is located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger. Its coast in the south lies on the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic Ocean. The name Nigeria was taken from the Niger River running through the country. Nigeria, known as "the Giant of Africa", is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. With the rise of foreign economic interest in Africa, it’s no surprise that Africa’s most populous country has received plenty of attention lately. Monetary matters aside, Nigeria’s main cities have been becoming more and more cosmopolitan over the years, and that has directly contributed to an increase in tourism and popularity among foreigners.
