The Federal Republic of Nigeria has an area of 923,769 square kilometres (km) (made up of 909,890 square km of land area and 13,879 square km of water area). The coast of Nigeria is a belt of mangrove swamps traversed by a network of creeks and rivers and the great Niger Delta that covers 70,000 square km (National Bureau of Statistics, 2009). The country's territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) cover 1555 square nautical km and 25,925 square nautical km, respectively. The southeast corner of the EEZ is shared with three neighbours: Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome and Principe.
