However, the country is so large with different islands miles away from each other that it has cities with different time zone. The city of Kiritimati is located on the far eastern side of Kiribati. Kiritimati is over half a day ahead of Nigeria, in fact, it’s safe to say that they’re living in the future. According to the last census update, over 7 thousand people are living in Kiritimati.

According to research, the time zone in Kiritimati is UTC (GMT)+14:00 while that of Nigeria is GMT+1, this simply means that Kiritimati is thirteen hours ahead of Nigeria and they’re also the first city or place on earth to cross over to the new year.

If the time in Nigeria is 12 noon, the time in Kiritimati would be 1 am the next day. Kiritimati is also nicknamed Christmas Island as it got its name from the word “Christmas” and it consists of five villages which are as follows;

• London (not mistaken for London in England)

• Banana wells

• Poland (Not mistaken for the country Poland)
