The half of the south of Nigeria has an equatorial climate where are located the majority of the important cities. The central part is composed of savanna's regions and plateau.
In fact, it is in the east of this part that we find the peak called : the mount Chappal Waddi (2 419 m). As for the North, the climate is dry because it's the sahel, in border of the desert of Sahara. The tropical climate dominates almost all of the country.
The same local current time all the year.
Because of the low variation of the diurnal duration in the regions close to the equator, the tropical countries do not generally turn to the time change.So that, the current time in Nigeria is the same the 365 days of the year.Moreover, the Nigeria is part of the West Africa Time Zone and that's another reason why there is no daylight saving time operated in this African country.
