Top Forums in Nigeria 2019 (Popular & Active)

Hello friends, am making this simple compilation to show you some of the very best Internet forums we have in Nigeria at the moment.


Best Forums in Nigeria

Blogs are more common than forums in our country Nigeria and the reason for this cannot be tagged to one thing alone. However, we may be exploring the growth of forums and dominance of blogs in our country Nigeria some other time. In this article, I’ll expose some of the top forums in Nigeria that are active and delivering some value to her members.

The Criteria for Forums Listed Here

It’s nothing other than the present state of the platform, it’s stability and the participation of the members of the forum, the alexa ranking of the site also is a factor.

Hence, a forum that has been around for five years with little or no active members will not be featured in this post! That said, let’s get started without much ado.

List of The Active Top Forums in Nigeria 2019

1. Nairaland

Some people tag Nairaland the first forum and they have capitalized on this to create a community online comprised of Nigerians and they have shown an astonishing level of stability over the years. For forum users in Nigeria, Nairaland needs no introduction so what exactly happens on Nairaland?

Nairaland is majorly about news and political discussion as shown by the statistics that can be found on the website’s forum categories. There are other pretty active sections such as webmasters and phones sections but the politics section yet remains the king on Nairaland. Do you want to know about the owner of, his worth and how he started this most visited forum in Nigeria, see HERE


2. GistMania

This is another large Nigerian forum which is active. It seems to have a link with another popular Nigerian website, naijapals. GistMania as the name suggests is a forum centered on gist, news and entertainment. In the past, GistMania has been criticized for being partial with the kind of information they allow to flourish on their platform but at the moment, one can spot a live Update widget on the homepage that shows the recent topics from the forum.
However, am not sure about what it shows and from where.

Honestly, Gistmania is yet to make its mark in Nigeria as compared to the status it has managed to maintain for quite some time now.

3. Jackobian

Originally started as a forum for Nigerian students alone but lots of surprises lie ahead for the forum. As a forum managed and dominated by Nigerian students, the early months of Jackobian were one to behold but what lies ahead has proven to be equally if not more interesting.

Speaking about what is all about can be a little difficult but it can be summarized as a community with an active Investment forum that focuses on Bringing the Best Investment opportunities both offline and online to Nigerians. Of recent it has been about Bitcoin Investments and also Altcoins.

Jackobian, being less than a year old have contributed to the Nigerian Bitcoin Community in ways no other native website has and looks forward to keeping the cryptocurrency as their primary objective in the immediate future.

Lastly, the website runs on a modern software which provides the flexibility her members enjoy. Some say this is one of the secrets to the progress of the platform. Also, at the moment, the administration of the Nigerian forum, Jackobian is still all Nigerian Students and we are optimistic about what will come out of here.

4. Nigerian best forum

This platform has been around for years too. Well optimized for the popular search terms relating to forums in Nigeria, it has seen its own share of online presence. The forum is a community comprised of over 386,000 accounts and this is a great number indeed.

The primary focus at appears to be Jobs and Job vacancies in Nigeria which is a pretty solid market at the moment. It has always been too. As mentioned earlier, it has been around for a while and has also shown some stability!

5. Ngstudent Forum

NSF, a forum website, was created in 2016, for all Nigerians, not only students but for all educators. Motives and aims of creating this website are to help all Admission seekers, Undergraduate, Graduates, Employed, Unemployed and Elites in their Education pursuits & careers.

Lately last year, Ngstudentforum was Approved by FreeBasics which enable the student to access Education news for free without Having Data.
