The current FON website has a number of links to Nigerian/African information sources, but they haven't been updated in ages.  Linking to Zaineb's Musings is a way of outsourcing the maintenance of such links.

Provision of links is no longer so important, as all this information comes back quickly with a Google search.  But they may guide FON members on what to look for.

Friends of Nigeria is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
