Astro-Nigerian philosophy, or Nigerian Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in Federal Republic of Nigeria under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Republic of Nigeria, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Republic of Nigeria oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Nigeria is split into thirty-six states and is set to hold two Grand Observatories in the capital city of Abuja, as well as in the city of Kano, and is also set to feature one rare Grand World Eidouranium in the city of Lagos. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement. History of Astronism in Nigeria. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Nigeria. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Nigeria had a population of 305,000 Astronists which is one of the highest populations of Astronists in the world.  Despite their unrecognised status, Astronists enjoy relative religious liberties in the country and can practice and profess their faith openly and publicly without fear of repression or incident. Therefore, the Astronist Institution has not expressed concerns regarding the religious freedoms for Astronists in this country. A significant barrier to the further spread of Astronism in the country is the lack of accurate translations of Astronist materials in languages other than English. As of late 2019, the Omnidoxy had not been translated into the most widely spoken non-English languages of Nigeria which remains an issue for Astronists there who don't speak English.
