How to Protect Your Brand in Nigeria
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR BRAND IN NIGERIA
Protecting your brand in Nigeria (the largest market in Africa) is strategic and very important. Nigeria’s amazing market size and its growing middle-class population are without doubt, golden for overseas companies, foreign brands, and exporters of goods and services.
Protecting your brand in Nigeria affords you the benefit of eliminating the risk of someone else filing the trademark of your brand in the same industry as yours. Such risk would severely hamper, if not eliminate your ability to sell your goods and services to the Nigerian consumers.
Getting a Nigerian trademark for your brand would eliminate the chances of your products getting impounded by the Customs, or receiving a cease-and-desist letter from a user of your brand name in Nigeria. Local partners and distributors of consumer goods in Nigeria also prefer to work with companies that have trademark rights already protected in Nigeria.

Of course, if you are selling your products to consumers in Nigeria, or intend to do so in the nearest future, then you should trademark your brand name and logo/design in Nigeria.
