The most populous country within OPEC, Nigeria has over 167 million inhabitants. Located on the Gulf of Guinea on Africa’s western coast, Nigeria covers an area of around 924 thousand square kilometres. Abuja, the capital since 1991, has a population of more than one million. English is Nigeria’s official language, although many local languages such as Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and Ijaw are also spoken.
Apart from petroleum, Nigeria’s other natural resources include natural gas, tin, iron ore, coal, limestone, niobium, lead, zinc and arable land. The oil and gas sector accounts for about 35 per cent of gross deomestic product, and petroleum exports revenue accounts for about 70 per cent of total exports revenue. Its currency is the naira.
Nigeria’s President is Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The country joined OPEC in 1971.
