Tag Archives: Study in Nigeria

Nigeria overlooks the Gulf of Guinea and is one of the largest and most densely populated countries in West Africa. As a state unit, Nigeria derives from the former British colony, which emerged during the competition for European penetration in this part of Africa; the only modification was the annexation in 1961, following a referendum, of the northern section of the former British Cameroon. In the context of the countries bordering the Guinean coast, on which it looks S for approx. 1000 km, Nigeria has a different configuration, a greater richness and morphological variety: this above all due to its breadth and its continental “hinterland”. The northern border with the State of Niger (and to the NE, through Lake Chad, with the State of the same name), in fact it goes almost as far as the Sahelian region; to the S the country participates extensively, with a vast forest belt, in the Guinean area; at the center it includes the savannah spaces crossed by the Niger river and its tributary Benue, between the mountains of Cameroon and Benin. Its territory is arable and possesses considerable mineral resources, thus having a considerable potential from an economic point of view. After a culturally flourishing past, the proclamation of independence obtained in 1960 after a few decades of European occupation caused ethnic clashes to re-explode, which resulted in the decimation of the populations of Biafra between 1967 and 1970.. The consequent political instability was offset by a notable economic growth, linked to the presence of oil. In the early years of the century. XXI Nigeria, despite its significant development potential, still seems to show all the signs of its weakness: political uncertainty, internal conflicts, economic fluctuation, international subordination. According to COUNTRYAAH, Nigeria is a nation in Western Africa, the capital city of which is Abuja. The latest population of Nigeria is 206,139,600.

CLIMATE
More than from the morphological components, the variety of environmental conditions is determined, in Nigeria, above all by the climate. It varies from S to N according to the modalities proper to the vast continental surfaces subject to the alternating seasonal rhythms of the influences of the maritime and continental air masses. As in the whole section overlooking the Gulf of Guinea that is to say, there are dry winters and rainy summers, with the progressive attenuation towards the N of the oceanic humidity. On the other hand, the coastal strip is constantly subject to these, and in particular the delta region of Niger, characterized by an equatorial climate. Broadly speaking, the rainy season lasts from 4 to 7 months in the region between the parallels of 11º and 8º (from May or June to September or October); after this period occurs the long dry season linked to the influence of the Saharan anticyclone which generates characteristic dry winds, such as harmattan. AS of this band the rainy season lasts approx. 7 months and is divided into two maximums separated by a “small dry season”, characteristic of the Guinean climate. Finally, in the coastal area with an equatorial climate, the rains are evenly distributed throughout the year, although they lessen a little in the winter months. Throughout the year, rainfall here reaches 2500 mm; in the intermediate range they oscillate between 1000 and 1500 mm, with slightly higher values ​​in the more elevated areas of the Jos plateau; finally in the northern belt they pass from 1000 mm to 500 mm towards N. The fact that the Nigerian territory is all included within the isoieta of 500 mm can explain the high population density of the country, which therefore has vast agricultural areas that can be used. As regards the thermal values, we pass from the equatorial averages of 25-26 ºC of the coastal strip, where there are insignificant daily and annual temperature variations, to 26-30 ºC of the intermediate zones, where the oscillations are more sensitive; finally, in the northern part, the maximum values ​​of 38-41 ºC are opposed by the minimum averages of 13-16 ºC. The highs occur here in the run-up to the rainy season (April).
