Another new district was created in Nigeria. The Ikot Ekpene Nigeria District comprises seven branches and was created from mission branches in and around Ikot Ekpene in the state of Akwa Ibom. The city of Ikot Ekpene has over 200,000 inhabitants and sits in one of the most densely populated states in Nigeria. This is the third new district created in the state of Akwa Ibom in the past six months with other districts organized in Ibiono and Oron. There are now 16 stakes and 17 districts in the country.
The area in southeastern Nigeria has become a pillar of strength for the Church in Africa. Below is a map of the stakes and districts in this portion of the country, where the temple is also located in Aba.
