I was preparing to Watch a Live Event from Nigeria. The Event Time was given in ET and PT. I began to contemplate which of the Time (ET or PT) is used in Nigeria. Now, if you are wondering which time we use in Nigeria whether ET or PT or… then this guide is for you.
What is ET and what does PT stand for? ET stands for Eastern Time while PT stands for Pacific Time. They are both time Zones. However, neither of them is used in Nigeria. But you can covert ET and PT to Nigeria Time Zone (WAT) or Nigeria Standard Time (GMT +1) to know what time it is in Nigeria.
Nigeria Time Versus ET And PT
Nigeria Time Zone is abbreviated as WAT (West Africa Time) and Nigeria Standard Time is GMT/UTC + 1 hour. Nigeria Standard Time is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time ( GMT+1 ).
Greenwich Mean Time is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London, reckoned from midnight.
ET is often used to denote the local time in areas observing either EASTERN STANDARD TIME (EST) or EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME (EDT) while PT is often used to denote the local time in areas observing either Pacific Standard Time (PST) or Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).
ET to GMT to Nigeria Time (GMT+1) Conversion Table
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is 5 hours ahead of Eastern Time (ET or EST). When ET is 03:00am, GMT will be 08:00am (i.e ET plus 5 hours). Then Time in Nigeria will be 09:00am Since we use GMT + 1 in Nigeria. Do you understand? If you do, what time will it be in Nigeria when ET is 04:00am?
|EST (ET)||GMT||Nigeria (GMT+1)|
PT to GMT to Nigeria Time (GMT+1) Conversion Table
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is 8 hours ahead of Pacific Time (PT or PST). When PT is 12:00 AM, GMT will be 08:00 AM. The Nigeria Time will then be 09:00AM Since we use GMT + 1 in Nigeria. Do you understand? If you do, what time will it be in Nigeria when PT is 01:00AM?
