Geographically, the country occupies a land mass of approximately 923,736 sq km on the west coast of Africa between the latitude of 4°1′ and 13°9′N and longitudes 2°2′ and 14°30′E. Nigeria shares borders with four countries: the Republic of Niger to the north, the Republic of Chad and Cameroon to the east, and the Republic of Benin to the west. The country is bounded in the south by a vast coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Guinea, which measures about 800 km ( UNSN, 2001 ). Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa, with a 1991 population of almost 90 million comprising 50.04 per cent males and 49.96 per cent females ( NPC, 1998 ). The population is estimated at 128,766,000 for the year 2005 ( US Census Bureau, 2005 ).
