Who needs current affairs?
Although most often, Job interviews, Job aptitudes test, students still in secondary school and primary school are the major readers of current affairs, every learned individual must know at least 90% of Nigeria current affairs. The Nigeria past and current affairs is a vital part of our society.
As an experienced recruiter, I’m very much aware of why Nigeria current affairs are part of a job interview or aptitude test. No employer would want to employ a fellow who lacks basic knowledge of Nigeria past and current economy.
There are jobs that demand you are current in politics, economics, art and the current trend in the social life of Nigeria citizens. For example, International relations jobs, Mass Communication, Economist etc all demands that you should be knowledgeable in Nigeria current affairs.
It’s so unfortunate that most people find themselves skimming through current affairs when there is an emergency job interview or aptitude test. Whether you’re a student, graduate, teacher, parent etc, having an up to date Nigeria current affairs will add value to your outlook of the Nigerian government and society.
For example, ask the average Nigerian what the eagle in Nigeria stands for? Believe, 90 would fail. All this information can be found in a current affair. Now, there are so many current affairs online but this current affairs 2019 you’re about to read was collated with a specific set of people in mind. Students going for Scholarship test & Job seekers going for interviews or aptitudes test but also good for general consumption.
I have read many current affairs online and most of them contain secondary school government questions and also foreign and irregular information. The current affair on this page is strictly Nigeria and for Nigerians alone.

The coat of arm of Nigeria has a black shield with two white stripes that come together, like the letter ‘Y’
This ‘Y’ SYMBOL represent the two main rivers flowing through Nigeria: which are the two popular rivers known as River Niger and River Benue.
The black shield represents Nigeria’s good earth. While the two horses on each side of the coat of arm represent dignity.
The eagle represents Strength, while the green and white bands on the top of the shield represent the rich Agricultural land of the country. The yellow flower at the base of the Coat of arm are Costus spectabilis, which is Nigeria’s national flower.
The flag of Nigeria was designed in 1959 and first officially hosted on 1st October 1960. (Which is Nigeria National Independent Day)
The green bands represent the forests and abundant natural wealth of Nigeria while the White band stands for peace. However, what you should know is that the designer of the flag was a student from IBADAN, Micheal Taiwo Akinkunmi.
