What system of government does Nigeria practise as a country.

As a country, Nigeria absolutely practice a system of government. From my own perspective, i notice that Nigeria combines the features of presidential system of government and federalism. Because some people dispute this, i seek to know you guys' opinion too.

Nigeria got its independence back in 1960 during the decolonization process in Africa. Before the colonization Nigeria did not exist. Presently it has 36 states and it is a Federal Republic. After many military and political coups Nigeria got several years of presidential rule. The current president won the honest elections, even though in the past he has been the head of the state during one of the coups. Learn more about the issue by reading the article below.

Nigeria is a Federal Republic. What this means is that the territory is divided into 36 states. Their number varied during the history of Nigeria. It all has started with 2 and then 12 larger states or land area. Each state possesses a certain degree of independence in its self-governance.

The head of the state is a governor and then there is the president and House of Representatives. All the rulers and key political offices in Nigeria are filled by voting. However several times in the past Nigeria political order was overthrown through military coups. No legal voting was available during such periods of time and the rulers can be called dictators instead.
