1. Maryland: Prince Georges, Baltimore (Not Including Baltimore City, the 4th largest Nigerian American community), Howard and Montgomery counties.

2. New York: All boroughs of New York City, the largest Nigerian American community, plus Nassau and Westchester counties.

3. Texas: Harris (esp. the city of Houston), Fort Bend, Tarrant, Dallas, and Travis counties.

4. Georgia: Cobb, Dekalb, Fulton, Gwinnett counties, with Atlanta is the 5th largest Nigerian-American community.

5. New Jersey: Hudson, Essex, Bergen, Union and Middlesex counties, with a large porportion of Nigerians live in Newark.

6. Illinois: Cook County (esp. the city of Chicago).

7. California: Los Angeles (city and county),Fresno, San Bernardino, Orange, San Diego, Sacramento and Solano counties; and the San Francisco Bay Area: Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

8. Ohio: Hamilton and Montgomery counties, with Columbus being the 3rd largest Nigerian-American community.

I think that there are more Nigerians in the US than they are in the UK. We have just over 1million black people in the UK if the census is to be believed.

My aunt who lived in Silver Spring until her demise recently was totally against moving to PG county, amidst the affordable real estate in the area. While PG county was mentioned in a positive light in Ebony magazine a while back, that same month or thereabout, the county received negative publicity from Essence magazine with regards to domestic violence.

Ndipe, i actually read that copy. i was shocked. . . because those involved in the domestic violence in PG are rich (Ebony mag). who knows they are nigerians  grin you know most don't have anger management and they are aggressive when it's money issue  grin

Osisi, true  PG was among the top 10 Forbes listed sometime recently. Many wealthy blacks buy homes there.

Domestic violence transcends all social classes and race. Infact, there was this article in a magazine that details the horrifying abuse that high profile women go through in the hands of their husband. And unfortunately, they are embarrased to file charges because of the attendant publicity that might ensue.

I am posting this for all those that have commented above, For all the Nigerians in the US. Please read.

Efiwe.org : Equiping African Tertiary Libraries

The need for access to relevant resources like books, equipment, journals etc. are fundamental to educational institutions and their success. Any current or past student in Public African tertiary institution will immediately see the utter lack of resources and the student’s struggle to seek knowledge amidst this lack of resources. Efiwe is a Non-profit organization based in the US that hopes to collect relevant post-secondary textbooks and send them to tertiary Institution Libraries in Africa. This is to help give students access to resources needed and increase the quality of education received in these institutions.

Efiwe is a Non-profit organization that is inititated in March 2017 to give African tertiary Institution students access to the relevant materials needed for success in their tertiary education. With a mission to send over One million (1,000,000) books to African tertiary Institution libraries by 2030, The goals are fixed. In the words of the founder, Philip Alabi – “My ultimate desire will be to see these books in the hands of a student (back home) enjoying the read and learning new things from the texts, illustrations and pictures displayed. The lasting social and economic change that comes from more Africans knowing better is what I seek to achieve.”

Efiwe was conceived after a similar book drive ran by the founder (Philip Alabi) saw the delivery of about 800 books from the US to Tai Solarin University of Education (his alma mater). He has ever since been motivated to attempt similar feat but with more scale and reach. Efiwe aims to have student organizations all over the US conduct book drives and send these books to different tertiary institutions in Africa.
Current needs of the project are listed below:
· recruiting more volunteers in the US for book collection and

· recruiting volunteers as writers (location doesn’t matter)

· recruiting volunteers in Africa for logistics and reaching out to institutions

· forging partnerships with Tertiary institutions

· forging partnerships with corporations and organizations for delivery of the goals of Efiwe and value exchange.
