Mainly there are two seasons in Nigeria, dry or winter and wet or summer. Jos town has the most pleasant climate in all of Nigeria. Rest of the country has hot weather. Northern parts of the country are hot and dry whereas southern parts are hot and humid. So the best time to visit Nigeria is from October to January. Peak season lies between December to January as most Nigerian festivals occur during this part of the year.
