New Arc Hydro Study: Albers Equal Area Conic Projection (looks Skewed?)

I'm busy setting up a new Arc Hydro model to assess a new Railway Alignment Design. My study area is within Nigeria, but the basins extend considerably far into North Africa.

My Study area ranges from 24°N to 4°N and -12.5°W to 16.5°E

Using the Albers 1/6 rule strictly:

My Standard Parallels are:

Standard Parallel1 = 20.5°N
Standard Parallel2 = 7.5°N

My Central Meridian is:

Central Meridian = 3°E

Any assistance in either identifying what parameters I need to use for Albers Equal Area Conic or to use a different projection will be appreciated.
