If The Name Of Your Tribe Is Not In This List, Then You May Not Be A Citizen Of Nigeria

Nigeria is indeed a blessed country with a rich cultural heritage. It is worthy of note that Nigeria is one of the countries in the world with highest number of tribes, languages and rich cultural structures. Aside Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba, which happened to be three major ethnic groups in Nigeria, Nigeria boast of over 500 languages and 371 tribes.

It is therefore imperative to say that a country with so much number of tribes and languages coexisting and enjoying the relative Peace we are currently enjoying, can only be by the grace and mercies of the one who made and sustains all by the power of His might( The great Mornarch of Zion). Even though the country is completely free of hitches here and there, the fact still cremains: Nigeria is still one for now.

Come with me as I show you the list of all the tribes in Nigeria with the corresponding states they can be found. Please note that if your tribe is not found here, you may likely not be a Nigerian. The earlier you start searching for your country the better.
