Irreligion in Nigeria
In 2017 the Humanist Association of Nigeria gained formal government recognition after a 17-year struggle. This was followed by recognition of the Atheist Society of Nigeria, the Northern Nigerian Humanist Association and the Nigerian Secular Society. It is considered more polite to use the term 'free thinker' when referring to an atheist. Example: Are you a Christian, a Muslim, or a 'free thinker’?
