What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Nigeria?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Nigeria if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"It is important to be mindful of cultural differences when visiting Nigeria. It is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions, and to dress modestly. It is also important to be aware of the local language and to avoid making assumptions about people based on their ethnicity or religion. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local etiquette when it comes to greetings and interactions with people. It is also important to be aware of the local laws and to avoid engaging in activities that are illegal in Nigeria," said a member in Nigeria.
