The Nation is a daily newspaper published in Lagos, Nigeria. According to a 2009 survey it was the second-most-read newspaper in Nigeria, and this result was repeated in a 2011 report by The Advertisers' Association of Nigeria (ADVANS).[2]

The paper's website says it stands for freedom, justice and the market economy. Its target audience is the business and political elite, the affluent, the educated and the upwardly mobile.[3]

The Nation has printing plants in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.[4]

The newspaper covers business and economy, public policies, the democratic process and institutions of democracy, sports, arts and culture.[5]

The newspaper became the first of its kind to gain nationwide circulation across the 36 states of Nigeria within two years of operation. This was a result of its popular eight-page pull-out Thursday publication titled Campuslife, a medium specially dedicated to student journalists and writers across the tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The Campuslife pull-out, with the late Ngozi Agbo (née Nwozor) as pioneer editor, helped the newspaper to become a household name across Nigeria, and several student journalists and correspondents whom the paper gave the opportunity to write for it as undergraduates are now renowned in their various professions.[6][7]

In April 2010, Edo Ugbagwu, a reporter who covered court cases for The Nation, was killed by gunmen. The reason was not known.[8][9]
