Presentation Transcript
  • Although Nigeria lies wholly within the tropical zone, there are wide climatic variations in different regions of the country.
  • with midday temperatures that surpass 100° F but relatively cool nights, dropping as low as 54° F
  • Nigeria’s economic freedom score is 55.1, making its economy the 120th freest in the 2013 Index. Its score is 1.2 points lower than last year due to a substantial decline in labor freedom that outweighs gains in the control of government spending and monetary freedom
  • Islam dominated the north and had a number of supporters in the South Western, Yoruba part of the country. Protestantism and local syncretic Christianity are also in evidence in Yoruba areas, while Catholicism dominates the Igbo and closely related areas
  • Nigerian cuisine consists of dishes or food items from the hundreds of ethnic groups that comprise the West African nation of Nigeria. Like other West African cuisines, it uses spices, herbs in conjunction with palm oil or groundnut oil to create deeply-flavored sauces and soups often made very hot with chili peppers.

Contributions to the world/ Exports
  • Oil and natural gas are the most important export products for Nigerian trade. The country exports approximately 2.327 million barrels per day
  • Altitude and relief greatly affect both temperature and rainfall in Zimbabwe. The higher areas in the east and the Highveld receive more rainfall and are cooler than the lower areas. Temperatures on the Highveld vary from 54–55° F in winter to 75° F in summer
  • Zimbabwe’s economic freedom score is 28.6, making its economy the 175th freest in the 2013 Index. Its score has increased by 2.3 points from last year, reflecting particularly strong improvement in control of government spending
  • It is estimated that between 60 and 70 percent of Zimbabweans belong to mainstream Christian denominations such as the Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Methodist Churches; however, over the years a variety of indigenous churches and groups have emerged from these mainstream denominations.
  • Similar to its history, Zimbabwe food also has different shades of color and flavor. With the advent of European colonies, the country has adopted a heterogeneity in its culture, rituals, lifestyle, and food. Some of the popular Zimbabwe Food Recipes are Salted Groundnuts, Corn meal with pumpkin, and Peanut butter stew.

Contributions to the world/ Exports
  • Zimbabwe’s trade has been badly effected by the nation’s involvement in the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo between 1998-2002, which siphoned millions of dollars away from the economy. The chaotic land reform policies by the Mugabe regime, which evicted more than 4,000 white farmers, has made the country, which was formerly an exporter, become a net importer in goods, such as maize
  • In the North we have the Igbo Mmo society that represents the spirits of deceased maidens and their mothers with masks symbolizing beauty. Common characteristics found on the masks are- finely sculptured thin and small well-placed women's features, which are accentuated by tattoos.
  • The Igbo are a profoundly religious people who believe in a benevolent creator, usually known as Chukwu, who created the visible universe (uwa). Opposing this force for good is agbara, meaning spirit or supernatural being.

Social Structure/Hierarchy
  • Details of traditional Igbo government and social structure varied from place to place throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but its characteristic nature remained the same. The basic unit of Igbo life was the village group, and the most universal institution was the role of the family head. This was usually the oldest man of the oldest surviving generation. His role primarily involved settling family disputes, and because he controlled the channel of communication with the all-important ancestors, he commanded great respect and reverence.
economy resources
  • Subsistence farming characterizes agriculture among traditional Igbo people. The chief agricultural products include yams, cassava, and taro. Other important subsidiary crops include cocoyam’s, plantains, maize, melons, okra, pumpkins, peppers, gourds, and beans.
  • Late 20th-century wood, paint, feathers, metal and wool mask from the Chewa people in Malawi, collected by Laurel Birch de Aguilar in 1992 for the British Museum
  • It is believed by the Chewa that men, women, animals and all living things were created by God (Chiuta, Chauta) at Kapirintiwa, a mountain on the boundary between central Malawi and western Mozambique, during a thunderstorm. As a result of the storm, the rains softened the hard surface, but as it hardened again, their footprints remained engraved in the actual rock

Social Structure/Hierarchy
  • In the tribes, the dominating law was survival of the fittest. Each tribal leader, or sheikh, controlled all affairs of the tribe in consultation with elders and other important leaders. In Mecca, the government was dominated by local pagan priests, who derived their power from the wealth they accumulated from offerings to the gods
economy resources1
  • Between 2009 and 2011, Zimbabwe’s GDP growth averaged an impressive 7.3 percent, making it one of the world’s fastest-growing countries. Yet World Bank governance indicators place Zimbabwe’s government among the world’s worst, and the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World index ranks it as one of the world’s least economically free countries..
