Ade-Ajayi, Niyi Osundare, Sam Aluko, Bolaji Aluko, Peter Bodurin and others too many to mention. In the early first decade of the 21st century, conservative religious leaders in northern Nigeria, suspicious of Western medicine (Medicine), advised their followers not to have their children vaccinated with oral polio vaccine. The boycott was endorsed by the governor of Kano State, and immunization was suspended for several months. Subsequently, polio reappeared in a dozen formerly polio-free neighbors of Nigeria, and genetic tests showed the virus was the same one that originated in northern Nigeria: Nigeria had become a net exporter of polio virus to its African neighbors. People in the northern states were also reported to be wary of other vaccinations, and Nigeria reported over 20,000 measles cases and nearly 600 deaths from measles from January through March 2005.

'''Nigeria''' , officially the '''Federal Republic of Nigeria''', is a federal (federation) constitutional republic comprising 36 states (States of Nigeria) and its Federal Capital Territory (Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria), Abuja. Nigeria is located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north. Its coast in the south lies on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean.

Present-day Nigeria has been the site of numerous kingdoms and tribal states spanning over a millennium. The modern state has its origins in British colonization during the late 19th to early 20th centuries, with the merging of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and Northern Nigeria Protectorate. During the colonial period, the British set up administrative and legal structures whilst retaining traditional chiefdoms. Nigeria achieved independence in 1960, but plunged into a two-year civil war (Nigerian Civil War) several years later. It has since alternated between democratically-elected civilian governments and military dictatorships, with its 2011 presidential elections being viewed as the first to be conducted reasonably freely and fairly.

Nigeria is often referred to as the "Giant of Africa", owing to its large population and economy. ''Nigeria: Giant of Africa,'' by Peter Holmes 1987 With approximately 174 million inhabitants, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world (list of countries by population). Nigeria has one of the largest populations of youth (Youth in Nigeria) in the world. The country is inhabited by over 500 ethnic groups, of which the three largest are the Hausa (Hausa people), Igbo (Igbo people) and Yoruba (Yoruba people). Regarding religion, Nigeria is roughly divided in half between Christians (Christianity), who live mostly in the southern and central parts of the country, and Muslims (Islam), concentrated mostly in the northern and southwestern regions. A minority of the population practice religions indigenous to Nigeria, such as those native to Igbo (Odinani) and Yoruba (Yoruba religion) peoples.

In 2014, Nigeria's economy (GDP) became the largest in Africa, worth more than $500 billion, and overtook South Africa to become the world's 21st largest economy. It is also a member of the MINT (MINT (economics)) group of countries, which are widely seen as the globe's next "BRIC-like" economies. It is also listed among the "Next Eleven" economies set to become among the biggest in the world. Nigeria is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the African Union, OPEC, and the United Nations among other international organizations.
