About Nigeria

The Federal Republic of Nigeria, commonly referred to as Nigeria, is a federal republic in West Africa, bordering Niger in the north, Chad in the northeast, Cameroon in the east, and Benin in the west. Its coast in the south is located on the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean. The federation comprises 36 states and 1 Federal Capital Territory, where the capital, Abuja is located. Nigeria is officially a democratic secular country.

The Federal Republic of Nigeria

On October 1, 1960, Nigeria gained independence from Britain. An all-Nigerian Executive Council was headed by a Prime Minister, Alhaji Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. On November 16, 1960, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, became the first Governor-General of a Federation of three Regions of the North, East and West, with Lagos as the Federal Capital. Each of the Regions was headed by a Premier with a Governor as Ceremonial Head. On October 1, 1963, Nigeria became a Federal Republic and severed whatever ties were left with the British monarchy, but remained a member in the Commonwealth of Nations. The Governor-General's position was, therefore, replaced with that of President.

Nigerian States

Nigeria is divided into thirty-six states and one Federal Capital Territory, which are further sub-divided into 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs). The plethora of states, of which there were only three at independence, reflect the country's tumultuous history and the difficulties of managing such a heterogeneous national entity at all levels of government.

History of NCAC

The Nigerian-Canadian Association of Calgary (NCAC) is a non-profit and non-political association established in January 1993, with it's center of activities and headquarters based in the NE of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

“There is plenty of room at the top because very few people care to travel beyond the average route. And so most of us seem satisfied to remain within the confines of mediocrity.”

— Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe

“After rain comes sunshine; After darkness comes the glorious dawn. There is no sorrow without its alloy of joy; there is no joy without its admixture of sorrow. Behind the ugly terrible mask of misfortune lies the beautiful soothing countenance of prosperity. So, tear the mask!

— Chief Obafemi Awolowo

Pastor Sunny Adeniyi
Pastor
The NCAC has been my community since 1993. Since 1988, I have been privileged to be part of the Nigerian community, who has taken me in as a brother, and made me feel that I am part of the community, without judgement. I am so happy to be part of a community that has formed me the person who I am today and look forwards to the years to come.
