Elder Dallin H. Oaks visits Nigeria

Almost 50 years after the first General Authority visited Nigeria in 1962, Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve met with thousands of faithful leaders and members of the Church who are thriving in this West African nation.

In only 22 years, the Church in Nigeria has the largest number of members in Africa.
