Nigeria Added To Wikipedia’s List Of Failed States

Wikipedia’s list of failed states has been updated and Nigeria is now one of the countries on the list.


The free web-based encyclopedia project which contains information on a wide variety of subjects described a failed state as a political body that has disintegrated to a point where basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly.
