Nigerian-Americans have been described as the most successful ethnic group in the United States.
According to a tweet by Candace Owens, a celebrity social commentator and pro-Trump activist, “Nigerian-Americans are the most successful ethnic group in the U.S!”
“If you want to know how it’s possible that blacks who come from under-developed Africa, keep outperforming blacks from over-privileged America — it’s bc they weren’t exposed to the Democrat parasite of victimhood!” she wrote via @realcandanceo.
A known critic of Black Lives Matter and of the Democratic Party, Owens is regarded as a political activist and an American conservative commentator.
Inspired by her tweets, people from all walks of life across the globe have continued to share their lovely experiences with Nigerians; emphasising that indeed Nigerians are diligent and dedicated people.
Noting that Nigerians are very smart class of human beings, @Brucej62 wrote, “You bet. I have some good friends from college who are from Nigeria. Smart as hell, and hard workers.”
Another user disclosed how her daughter’s marriage to a Nigerian has been of invaluable positive development. @Micheledomes tweeted, “My son in law is from Nigeria and he is the most goal driven man in his age group I have ever met. He is a super positive influence on my daughter and I love him dearly for who he is and how he loves her.”
The Nigerian spirit has also been acknowledged to be one alien to begging. Talking about Nigerians, @Davidkemmpp wrote, “They work their asses off — just ALL the legal immigrants from third-world countries do. You’ll never see one of the folks from Nigerians — or an Asian — begging on a street corner or camped on the streets. They WORK hard to advance.”
Basking online in the euphoria of the Nigerian spirit, a Nigerian identified as @Ajayioluwasayo tweeted, “Average Nigerians have moral values and have one thing or the other to pursue to give them edge over others. We don’t see victimisation as a limitation to our pursuit rather as an inspiration to pursue more. #Nigerianspirit”
Some commentators have, however, noted that the negativity associated with Nigerians across the globe was a result of the infamous activities of government and its officials. According to @DrBenLuno, he wrote, “That’s exactly my point that such positivity should hit the global roof top. Nigerians are great people individually, our government only mess up our collective strength.”
