Nigeria, shows as having GSM service in the following bands with 4 carriers..
Best to buy a Quad band Cell phone as many carrier now best give you service on those frequencies..
a Pay as you Go Phone from Rogers for $89 to $99 can be purchased for the best value / bang for your buck for this purpose new..
Nokia 5130 Bands - 850/900/1800/1900..
Samsung Hype A256 Bands - 850/900/1800/1900..
If you go with any other brands, make sure you cover at minimum the bands listed above but I would go with the Pay as you go Quad band phone as it is cheapest value for dollar spent. You can insert any SIM card you already have in Canada and do not have to use a Pay as you go card or can buy time in Nigeria is they permit that there..
