The exact time in Nigeria is based on the time zones for Nigeria. We will always try to give you the exact time for Nigeria. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Nigeria might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Nigeria are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity.
