History of Nigeria
Located in West Africa, Nigeria is the most populated country on the continent. Overtaking South Africa in 2014, Nigeria also has the largest economy in Africa, and is considered to be an emerging power by World Bank. A large portion of the economy is dedicated to agriculture with beans, sesame, cashews, and cocoa beans being the largest exports, although many other items are grown there. Nigeria also has a large petroleum reserve and is the 8th largest exporter in the world. This is set to increase however as the Shell Oil Company is set to utilize four of Nigeria’s oil fields.
Nigeria was ruled by local tribes for most of its existence. In order to combat the slave trade, Great Britain attacked ships leaving the Nigerian area that were thought to contain slaves. Great Britain gained control over the area in 1900, where it ruled for sixty years. In 1960, Nigeria gained its independence from Great Britain but was quickly involved in a civil war just 7 years later. Following the war and a military occupation, Nigeria became a full democratic nation in 1999.
Many countries have items that are prohibited or restricted from being imported and exported. These items may include food, pets and medications and customs regulations are subject to change at any time. When traveling to Nigeria you want to be sure to research all customs regulations. This can be done with your local embassy or the country’s consulate prior to relocating. You can also visit VisaHQ.com, they offer customs regulations for numerous countries.
