Geography

Nigeria is situated in the Western part of Africa at the “trigger” of the continent. It is bordered by the Republic of Niger and Chad to the North, to the East by the Republic of Cameroon, the Atlantic Ocean on the South and to the West by the Republic of Benin (Figure 2.1).

The surface area of the country is approximately 923,770m2, and about 35% of this land mass is believed to be arable while 15% is said to be used as pastures, 10% as forest reserve, and 10% for settlements.

 

The landscape of Nigeria varies with mangrove forests and swamps bordering the southern coast, and hardwood forests further inland. The Niger and Benue River valleys make up Nigeria’s most expansive region. Nigeria’s highest point is Chappal Waddi (Taraba State) at 7,936 ft. (2,419m); the lowest point of the country is the Atlantic Ocean (0m)

Climate

Nigeria, by virtue of its location enjoys a warm tropical climatic condition with relatively high temperatures throughout the year and two seasons; the dry and wet seasons. The climate of the country is influenced by the interaction of two air masses: the relatively warm and moist tropical marine air mass (mT) which originates from the Atlantic Ocean and is associated with Southwest winds in Nigeria; and the relatively cool, dry and relatively stable tropical continental air mass (cTs) that originates from the Sahara Desert and is associated with the dry, cool and dusty North-East Trades (Harmattan).

Annual rainfall ranges from over 2,500mm in the south to less than 400mm in parts of the extreme north. Nigeria’s annual temperature range is between 18.45oc and 36.9oc for the coolest and hottest months respectively.
