They are working on getting regions back as soon as possible. I know they are working on getting a big set of countries back next on Uphold. Don’t know if Nigeria is on the list.
They are also working with a new custodian partner.
Nigeria is too big to be excluded.
So is India. So is China. So are so many other regions. Its because of the rules & regulations and frauds & scams from the regions. They are working on getting regions back.
lol i know, but just saying…
Main issue with that is your region has restrictions placed by Uphold and others for now. If you go to https://support.uphold.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026786712-Non-Supported-Geographies- you’ll see Nigeria listed at

Often any country listed under non-supported by Uphold will not be able to be supported by Brave. As to why Uphold is not able to operate in your country, I’m not certain. Though I’m assuming it’s based on the restrictions by government talked about at https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-11-27/nigeria-sec-to-avoid-cryptocurrencies-in-digital-assets-push and https://www.kitco.com/news/2022-12-19/Nigeria-looks-to-pass-new-crypto-legislation-to-keep-up-with-global-economic-innovation.html
Basically, they have to tread carefully as countries change their regulations. Nigeria and India right now are constantly talking of changes and modifying existing rules. Until it settles down and they have something more concrete, it’s hard to operate there. Businesses want to make sure they aren’t doing anything illegal and it’s hard to make big changes every time. So you’re likely stuck waiting until governments can make more permanent decisions that allow them to operate.
