Niyi is the capital of the eponymous province, established in 1679. After the communes in the city federated to form a citywide district government after the formation of the First Republic, a referendum approved the merger of the city and canton governments. The formal name of the city is City of Niyi–Nee.
Niyi is considered a melting pot with a large number of different ethnicities represented. Roughly a third speak Sani and a third Istvani, while other nationalities make up 12 percent of the population.
