List of 36 states and capitals in Nigeria

How many states are in Nigeria Actually, Nigeria has 36 states and one federal capital territory. Between 1960 and 1963, Nigeria was only divided into 3 regions. They were called eastern region, western region and northern region.

From 1963 to 1967, Nigeria had 4 regions instead of three because of the carving out of the mid western region out of the old western region. Then, between 1967 and 1975, General Yakubu Gowon created the first 12 states in Nigeria.
