Niger Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Niger is not using Daylight Saving Time.
Niger uses West Africa Time WAT. WAT is UTC +0100. The longitude of Niger’s western border is 2° 00’ E. The Longitude of its eastern border is 16° 00’E. Therefore being one hour ahead of UTC is too much for the west of the country. GMT, on the other hand would be unsuitable for the east. UTC +0030 would be perfect for Niger. As it is, the west of Niger has to wait a while to see the sunrise.
