Making A Case For the Nigerian American Community Vote
In The 2022 Midterm Elections
As Nigerian Americans we want to bequeath to our children and the generations to come an environment that assures their safety and fundamental human rights are protected. We are experiencing growing tensions on many fronts: rising extremism, increasing gun violence, war against our political process and threat to our democratic principles. These should give everyone in our community a cause, not only to be concerned, but more importantly, to act to protect our fundamental rights in this nation of our “New Homeland.”
“We need to reconcile and commit to work together for a better and stronger, all inclusive, Greater African-American Community.”

Together We Are Stronger
There is a need to dispel the tilt of many Nigerians in the homeland (Nigeria) towards Donald Trump as a conservative, religious President. Likewise, there is a need to reverse President Trump’s action, which added Nigeria (Africa’s most populous nation, and world’s most populous Black nation), to the list of countries whose residents face restrictions on immigrating to the United States.
Mobilize a collective action of Nigerian-Americans, for the first time, to cast a block vote in a Presidential Election, and to do so for the former Vice President Joe Biden. It is time the Nigerian Community takes a stand to be counted and recognized for its contribution in building the economy of the United States. With a united force, the Community will form a very strong political power house capable of a voice heard loud and clear that it exists politically; that its vote matters greatly; and that it deserves a seat in the Biden’s Administration.
The need to respond strongly to former President Obama’s foreign policy towards Nigeria, which fueled the derailment, and failed second term election of President Goodluck Jonathan.
It is time Nigerian-Americans exert strong enough political power to influence or respond to socio-economic and political issues affecting the Nigerian Community in the United States, and interests in the home country, Nigeria.
Our commitment is to raise sufficient amount of money through donations, and to use the money raised to mobilize Nigerian-Americans across the United States and her territories to get out to register, and on election day, to massively go out and vote for Joe Biden.
