Well at least that’s what Wikipedia told me … Nigeria is 7th behind the likes of China, India, USA and surprisingly Brazil (I bet Nigerians in Brazil are like 30 Million). However, I stumbled on a page that estimates Nigeria’s 2050 population to be approximately 304 Million. What do you think?

Seriously, I think Nigeria (Home + Abroad) is around 350,000,000, Prove me wrong? Check the full country list by Population from Wikipedia.
