State Geography

Meaning of State

A state is made up of a number of local government areas. The number of local government areas varies from one state to another depending on the size of the state. Nigeria at present has thirty-six (36) states and the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja. Below is the Nigerian map showing the 36 states and FCT.

Local Government Headquarters

A local government area is formed by the combination of several towns and villages with similar physical and cultural features. Local government areas serve as third tier or level of government in Nigeria. There are 774 local government areas in Nigeria. Each of them has its administrative headquarters.

Students should try with the help of teacher to name the local government areas in their state, their headquarters and their locational relationship.
