Even the top Nigerian websites such as punch newspaper, nairaland, Sahara reporters .

I conducted a research and found that only 5 percent of Nigeria websites have SSL . Vanguard Newspaper and Linda Ikeji website are just a few with SSL

even the Nigerian government website have no SSL. unbelievable , very easy to hack .

This includes Nairaland.....

But your 95% claim is way out of place.....

Please share your stats

I have made it a rule to include this to any website I build no matter how insignificant that website is....

I also went back and made sure the other sites that I built without https, now got one....

With the new rule coming up, on sites without SSL, I guess most webmasters will wake up to their responsibilities of ensuring that their clients sites got this....

Nairaland uses SSL
But, it is hidden
It shows only on the backend of the forum

Because most Nigerians are greedy and mediocre in nature. The saying that “Anything worth doing is worth doing well” is an abomination here. angry That’s why nothing works here.. Road? Zero, water? Zero, light? Zero, security? Zero, healthcare? Zero.. in fact nothing nothing.

OP this does'nt really guarantee maximum security

Its core value was for ecommerce, social media sites, SEO etc

Hackers will still get access to your files even if you are using "POSITIVE SSL"

Because not all sites are ecommerce sites and frankly if you don't have any login functionality or ecommerce you don't need ssl. Some will argue that Google ranks sites with ssl better but in the end, not everybody is affected by the lack of ssl certificates on some sites
