District 9125 Nigeria is one of the three Rotary International Districts in Nigeria covering 23 out of the 36 States of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The District is the outcome of the merger between two former Rotary International Districts 9120 and 9130 following a decision by the Rotary International Board in their February 2006 meeting when they requested the two former Districts to work out the modalities to actualize the merger.

D9125 occupies about 90% of the land mass of Nigeria.

Out of the estimated 140 million people in Nigeria, about 97 million people are in District 9125.

Rotary Club of Kano, the first Rotary Club in Nigeria (Chartered in April 1961) is the home Club of Past Rotary International President and Past Chairman, Rotary Foundation Board of Trustees of Rotary International, Jonathan B. Majiyagbe (SAN, OFR).
