#17 NIGERIA

Did you know that…

ng

…English is the official language of Nigeria and is extensively used for education, business transactions and for official purposes? Despite being the first language, English is not spoken at all in some rural areas. Because the majority of the population of the country stays in rural areas, indigenous languages such as the Yoruba and Igbo are spoken by the majority. A derived language called the Nigerian Pidgin English, also called the ‘Pidgin’ or Broken English is also a popular lingua-franca in the country.

And did you know that the Niger Delta covers 20,000 km² within wetlands of 70,000 km² formed primarily by sediment deposition (which makes it the second largest delta on the planet), and has the highest concentration of monotypic (sole member of biological group) fish families in the world?
