Overview

The UK-based Nigerian diaspora plays an essential part in maintaining the strong cultural and economic ties between the two countries. With a significant presence in the financial, legal, educational and health sectors, among others, the large and active Nigerian diaspora community can be a dynamic asset in bilateral engagements and Nigeria’s socio-economic development.

At this event, Hon Dabiri-Erewa, senior special assistant to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on foreign affairs and diaspora, will discuss the federal government’s strategy for the inclusion of the diaspora in Nigeria’s development and the strengthening of UK-Nigeria bilateral relations.
