Top 6 most peaceful states in Nigeria

Politics Nigeria Nigeria is not ranked among the most peaceful countries in the world and in Africa. The instability in Nigerian politics gives rise to intermittent clashes and insecurity in most areas of the country. Cult clashes and political thuggery have ensued in many communities.

These are in addition to the herdsmen and book haram insurgency in parts of the North east and north central region. Amidst these clashes, some states are still enjoying relative peace and tranquility.

In politics in Nigeria,the internal security of the state is widely regarded as one of the key indicators of a successful administration. The present administration had promised to put an end to the boko haram insurgent. They are still battling with it and the herdsmen invasion is rearing its ugly head. President Goodluck Jonathan spent many years in taming the militants in south-south Nigeria.
