As I noted in my last post, Nigerians seem to be doing very well when it comes to getting an American green card through the Visa Lottery. Here is the evidence. Of all the countries and regions in the world where people are allowed to participate, more Nigerians were invited to gain a green card than anyone else. 9849 Nigerians, to be exact. That number is staggering when you consider that the closest country/region was Ethiopia at 6871.

Well, digest that. This could definitively explain why I feel that my city is little Nigeria, what with the amount of Nigerians I see, or hear, on a daily basis. Oh, I mentioned the proliferation of Nigerians in Bowie in Where Did All the Hausa People Go?
