The UK respects the territorial integrity of Nigeria; we supported the reconciliation work that followed the Nigerian civil war and continue to support efforts to work for a secure and prosperous Nigeria for all Nigerians. Nigeria does not publish detailed breakdowns of economic development or disaggregated economic data for individual states or for specific ethnic groups. We remain committed to supporting the Government of Nigeria's work towards economic reform, including diversification of the economy to deliver sustainable and inclusive growth for all.
