It is essential as a citizen of Nigeria to at least know the slogan/nickname of the state you resides in or hails from. Nigeria comprises of 36 states and a Federal Capital Territory (FCT). I have recently posted about the state and capital in Nigeria, this article will focus on Nigerian states and their slogans.
Full List of Nigeria State, FCT and Slogan.
Some of these states like Osun state, Adamawa, Anambra, Delta state etc have changed their nickname over the past years. This article will reflect both their old and new slogans.
Also, some of these state slogans didn’t compliment the current situation of the state. Example is Borno state whose slogan is “Home of Peace”, but can as well be called “Home of Chaos” or “Home of Terror” due to the current actitivies of Boko Haram (BH) in the state. Below are states of Nigeria and their respective slogans (Old and New).
