Nigeria is home to 160 million people, but more than 100 million live on less than £1 per day. A stable, better governed and prosperous Nigeria would rapidly reduce poverty. It would also hugely benefit UK trade, energy and security interests, and help reduce crime and illegal migration. 2013–14 has seen a worsening of the security situation for many Nigerians, both in terms of terrorist activity and state response and rising intercommunal tensions.
