The Federal Republic of Nigeria was the most populous country in Africa. According to an estimate in July 2009, it was the world’s eighth largest nation. With area about twice the size of California, Nigeria was rich in natural resources, especially oil. However, the country seemed to have minerals in equal measure to their economic, social and political problems. For decades, the country with stormy military rule, religious and ethnic unrest, as well as a very unequal distribution of resources was apart. Nevertheless, recent reforms and developments in key sectors had increased economic growth and spurred a sense of optimism for the future of the country. The question was whether Nigeria could maintain this momentum, overcome its key challenges and create an environment that would make them compete at international level. This paper provides a brief history of Nigeria and explores its current position in the world economy.
