Nigeria is the most populated country of Africa with a population estimated around 170 million people, i.e. approximately one sixth of the whole African population. Nigeria is classified as a mixed economy emerging market, and has already reached lower middle income status according to the World Bank. It has an abundant supply of natural resources, well-developed financial, legal, communication, transport sectors and a stock exchange, which is the second largest in Africa. Despite a booming economy, Nigeria presents growing inequalities and a large part of the population doesn’t have access to essential services. Considering the deterioration of the situation in the past years, the humanitarian situation in Nigeria is of serious concern.
