Are Nigerians The New Asians?

My title page contents
Nigerians … have been rated among certain races who are bound to succeed over others in America, the News Agency of Nigeria reports. 
Their book, The Triple Package claims that Nigerians and a few other groups share the characteristics that are commonly supposed to have made Asian immigrants so successful in the U.S. (In a far stranger opinion piece in the Premium Times, Reno Omokri, an advisor to Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, cites Chua and Rosenfeld as support for anti-gay policies.)

One can see why the Nigerian elevation to model minority status might be welcome news in some quarters. After all, Asian-Americans have come a long way.
