Aba Nigeria Mormon Temples

Standing on a lovely hill just north of the Ogbor River, the Aba Nigeria Temple is the 121st temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the second in West Africa, after the Accra Ghana Temple. Built in 2005, the Aba Nigeria Temple serves Church members living in Nigeria and Cameroon.

Inside the Aba Nigeria Temple are sealing rooms, where weddings are performed; instruction rooms, where patrons learn more about God and His plan for them; a baptistry; and a celestial room, symbolizing heaven, where patrons can contemplate the gospel. For members living in West Africa, having a temple in their midst is significant because temples are the places where Latter-day Saints make life-changing promises to God, gain spiritual strength to guide their decisions, and participate in ceremonies that link — or “seal” — their family members together for eternity.
