Once upon a time, Nigeria was adjudged the happiest country in the world. Now, it would appear that the country is the 6th happiest in the continent of Africa.

This is according to the latest World Happiness Report, compiled by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations.

Other factors include freedom to make life choices, generosity and perceptions of corruption.
