Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world.

Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
