What is the official language of Nigeria and why?
Despite the huge number of languages and dialects spoken throughout Nigeria, approximately 510, English is the official language of the country. This is because it serves as a language common the majority of the population but also because of Nigeria's history as a British country
Nigeria is a huge country with a very large population and has many languages spoken in it. English is an official language of Nigeria, but many others are recognised. It is because there is such a diverse amount of people and cultures in Nigeria, that it would be difficult to have one language as a national language.
