Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa: it is home to more than 175 million people and its gross domestic product is also the highest on the continent. It is also extraordinarily diverse. The giant of Africa has more than 500 ethnic groups within its borders, each with its own history, traditions and language.
It is also a great travel destination for anyone with a fascination for history and anthropology, as it is one of the cradles of human civilization. There is evidence of ancient populations dating back as far as 9000 B.C. A trip to Nigeria can transport you back to the earliest days of mankind.

Lagos has a vibrant music scene and a thriving soccer culture. If you’re looking for some sun, try Bar Beach, Lekki Beach and Badagri Beach.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has once again voiced his dissatisfaction with the internationally imposed travel bans on South Africa, which he considers “unscientific and discriminatory”.
Ramaphosa is immersed in a high-level tour of the western region of the African continent and, during his stop in Nigeria, he thanked the President of that nation, Muhammadu Buhari, for the message his government is sending by holding the meeting.
Ramaphosa has detailed that the presidents of Ivory Coast, Ghana or Senegal, nations that he will visit during this tour, also move in the same terms, reports the South African portal News24.
“This is a global pandemic, and overcoming it requires us to collaborate and work together as a collective,” said the South African leader, appealing to the twinning of Africa and the international community.
Ramaphosa’s visit comes at a time when most of the international community has reinforced its measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, especially by banning travel to South Africa and other countries in the southern region of the continent due to the appearance of a new variant of the virus, Omicron.
