The three largest and most dominant ethnic groups are the Hausa, Yoruba, and Igbo.
In a country with more than 250 individual tribal languages, English is the only language common to most people. What is a “Tribe”? Varies from tribe to tribe depending on what food is in season and they’re geographical location.
