The option to receive Paypal payments is sadly not available in Nigeria, so there is no point or option in you having a business account.
You can only send payments for purchases funded by your (confirmed) credit card.

Paypal varies a lot country to country and can only offer the services that the banks / governments of that country allow it to offer.
There are quite a few countries unable to receive Paypal payments.
