About the populations: the last time Nigeria released census settlement data was in 1991, which was the data used in this quiz. A lot of these city populations are clearly outdated, like Abuja and Lagos. Nigeria plans on conducting a new census this year, so when that data releases, the populations will be more accurate. Until then, I just decided to use the most "recent" data available.

Oshogbo is the rarely used name of Osogbo, so you should change that. Also, Abakaliki is accepted for Aba when they are 2 totally separate cities?

Abakaliki is accepted for Aba because it starts with Aba.
