2016 is just a few days away and soon a tumultuous year will be (technically) over for Nigerians.

2015 has arguably been a long year for Nigerians.

The election of a new president, the exit of a questionable president, several state elections, including one that saw the death of a gubernatorial candidate before he was officially sworn in; overall economic uncertainty due to the falling price of crude oil and the ongoing refugee crisis and internal displacement of people due to Boko Haram attacks.  The aforementioned topics are just a few points of discussion that changed the course of politics and society for the nation.

As Google’s 2015 trend search for Nigeria shows, Nigerians concerned themselves with significant international matters too. Sports are unsurprisingly part of Nigerian searches as well.
