Nigeria in Political Transition [Updated June 10, 2003]   [open pdf - 111KB]

"Nigeria continues to make progress in strengthening its fragile democracy but faces serious economic challenges. With a population of over 126 million, Nigeria remains relatively stable, although ethnic and religious clashes in some parts of the country have led to massive displacement of civilian populations. Thousands of civilians have been killed over the past several years and many more wounded in religious clashes."
