New District in Nigeria

The Church created a new district in southeastern Nigeria. The Ibesikpo Nigeria District was organized from the Nsit Ubium Nigeria Stake and consists of five branches: The Ikot Akpan Abia, Ikot Ebre, Ikot Oku Iyan, Ikot Udofia, and Ndikpo Atang Branches. The Nsit Ubium Nigeria Stake was one of the largest stakes in Nigeria prior to the creation of the new district, having eight wards and eight branches. There are now seven wards and four branches in the stake. The new district in Ibesikpo becomes the 21st district in Nigeria and the fourth new district organized in 2010.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Asaba Nigeria district split soon. 10 branches, including two 3-branch cities, but two far-flung for a stake. Perhaps Ogwashi-Uku.

I agree. Congregational growth in Nigeria in 2009 and 2010 has been phenomenal. I am waiting for new stakes to be created in Benin City.
