Making A Case For Nigerian Community
60% of Democratic Voters
Biden won an overwhelming victory in the South Carolina primary primarily due to the fact that 60% of Democratic voters in the state are African-American. Black support has since been described as Biden’s “Rocket Fuel”.
Political Debt To African Americans
Should Biden go on to win the presidency, his political debt to African Americans will be enormous. It’s a debt he will be pressed to honor.
Relations Between African-Americans
Relations between African-Americans and the Africans in the Diaspora have a long history that is extensive and complex. Nonetheless, today there is a groundswell movement by the descendants of slavery “African-Americans” and the millions of first-generation African citizens and their children who are now empowered to vote, and desire very much to use it.
Best Capitalize On Biden Presidency
Governments, businesses and civil society throughout Africa are eager to see how they can putt put their minds together to know how they could best capitalize on Biden Presidency.
Recent Outpouring Of Investigations
Recent outpouring of investigations by African-American and African scholars into their historic and ongoing ties to Africa adds fresh richness and political relevance to this process of convergence, and of shared common destiny.
“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.
