Niger is a West African nation which borders Libya to the northeast, Chad to the east, Benin to the southwest and Algeria to the north. The political situation in Niger is volatile due to the constant terrorist attacks carried out by Islamist Militants. Constant military coups have also worsened Niger’s political crisis while the country continues to also be faced with problems such as slavery, drought, poverty, and terrorism despite being rich in oil and gold. The culture of Niger is distinct in that many of its people are known to eat only one meal a day while spending more time engaged in other social activities. The people wear boo-boos which are long dresses that reach their ankles. The main language of Niger is French but Arabic and Hausa are also widely spoken.
