I am looking for Nigeria administrative boundaries (0-3) level especially the 3 rd level which is called "senatorial districts".

Where can I find these?

The GADM is a good resource for country admin boundaries, both internal and external.

Try these shapefiles: gadm36_NGA_shp

There are three levels available:

  • 0-Country (1)
  • 1-State (37)
  • 2-Local authority (775)

From your question you're asking for senatorial districts, of which there are 109. Each state is split into 3 districts and the composition appears to be based on local authority bounds (level 2). You could therefore try using the level 2 local authority bounds with the district composition to merge into senatorial district bounds.

  • thanks for your help. But both GADM resource and gadm36_NGA_shp proved admin boundaries for 2 levels only. I need the 3 rd level Sep 25 '19 at 14:22
  • you appear to need a level which is between 1 and 2. I have clarified the answer.
