Nigerian students rank high on the list of international students currently studying in the United States, according to latest figures. Using last year’s figures, the World of Statistics, in a post over the weekend, said the world’s most populous black nation had 14,438 students currently studying in the United States. Although the figure put Nigeria in 10th top spot in the world and number one in Africa ahead of 29th placed Ghana, which has only 4,916 students, it, however, pales into insignificance when compared to the number of Chinese students in the US.

The world’s two foremost economies may be at loggerheads over various issues, but that has not stopped a staggering 290,086 Chinese students heading to the US to study. India has the next largest number of students in the US with 199,182 while US ally, South Korea, placed third with 40,755 students.

The other nations that round up the top five are Canada and Vietnam, which both have 20,713 students and Taiwan with 20,487. Incidentally, the United Kingdom which prides herself with having a ‘special relationship’, being a former colonial master of the US, has 10,292 students to place 14th. And in another development, Nigeria also rates high when it comes to the ownership of motorcycles, placing eighth in the world. According to the World of Statistics 35 per cent of Nigerian households own the two-tyre machine, which is popularly called ‘Okada.’

Although many may dispute this considering the number of okada dotting all over the country as popular means of transportation, however, according to the survey, the Asian nation of Thailand is miles ahead with 87 per cent of households owning motorbikes. Other nations ahead of Nigeria include second placed Vietnam with 86 per cent; Indonesia (85 per cent); Malaysia (83 per cent); China (60 per cent); India (47 per cent) and Pakistan (43 per cent).

Egypt is the next African country with the most motorcycles after Nigeria with 28 per cent to place 11th in the world while Tunisia is third on the continent and 13th in the world with 25 per cent.

It's fascinating to see how Nigerian students are making a mark on the international education scene, ranking 10th globally and securing the top spot in Africa for those studying in the United States. The growing number of Nigerian students pursuing education abroad highlights the nation's commitment to academic excellence and global exposure.
However, the stark contrast in numbers between Nigeria and China underscores the immense scale of international student mobility, with China sending an overwhelming 290,086 students to the US. This not only reflects the size of China's population but also the emphasis on education as a key component of their global engagement strategy. I am also a student so I can understand how hard studying can be. Sometimes I don't have time and use it only professionals work there. A great resource if you need homework help. Notably, India and South Korea follow closely behind, showcasing the diversity of nationalities seeking education in the US. The statistics also shed light on the global appeal of American universities and the opportunities they offer to students from around the world. On a different note, the article's mention of Nigeria ranking eighth in the world for motorcycle ownership, with 35 percent of households owning 'Okada,' provides an interesting perspective on transportation trends. The popularity of motorcycles in Nigeria, despite some potential discrepancies in perception, reflects the practicality and accessibility of this mode of transportation in the country. Overall, these statistics offer a glimpse into the global landscape of education and transportation trends, showcasing the diverse choices and preferences of nations worldwide.
