Nigeria is a country in West Africa, bathed by the Gulf of Guinea. It is the most populous in Africa, with 186 million residents (2016). Although the quality of life is low, in general, Nigeria is the African country with the highest GDP, because of oil, but development has come in large strides in recent years. However, the Nigerian economy slowed in 2015. In antiquity, Nigeria was home to the people of the nok culture. Other civilizations emerged in the following centuries until the arrival of the Portuguese in the 15th century. The English dominated the Nigerian coast in the 18th century, seeking control over the slave trade in the region. In 1914, Nigeria formally became a British colony. Independence was achieved in 1960. The capital is Abuja and the largest city is Lagos, the second most populous city in the world, after Shanghai.
