A quick glance at Africa obviously depicts it as a continent in distress amidst its natural and divine endowments. Nigeria is ironically the giant of Africa and yet one of the poorest countries in the world. Reasons can be advanced for this impoverishment ranging from bad leadership to lack of opportunities. This has occasioned the youths that have lost hope in themselves and their beloved country, hence the yearning to emigrate to a land presumably flowing with milk and honey. Currently, there are over 30,000 Africans holding PHD who are living outside Africa.

It is not an overstatement that an average Nigerian is an embodiment of outstanding talents and potentials that need to be emphasized and showcased in the world but not as fraudsters or thieves in the making as we are most times considered by aliens. There are so many Nigerians who have contributed immensely to the growth of other countries and yet they are often regarded as third class citizens. For instance, an estimated 21, 000 Nigerian doctors work in the US alone.

It is in view of the foregoing that NIPRO, a group of young Nigerians living within and outside Nigeria has been on the list of stakeholders in the redemption of our already tarnished image. NIPRO’s coming to Nigeria will reverse the brain drain by retaining the trained manpower and attracting the trained Nigerians working abroad. It will work with donor agencies and companies to develop schemes designed to attract trained Nigerians back to Nigeria.

NIPRO adheres to the principle of relationship: You are not more than four (4) persons away that can connect you to your destiny. NIPRO will create an environment to facilitate networking and exchange of ideas and to help find support, human and financial resources, to assist professionals and organisations.

Prior to this time, Kamiludeen Olufowobi, a TIGNigerian, based in United States (Senior Vice President of NIPRO inc. US and UK) and I had a series of discussions online, on bringing this dream to reality. You wont believe that Kamil and I have not met eye ball to eye ball before. It will be an opportunity for us to meet also. I can say without trepidation that NIPRO is coming home to make the difference. And guess what? TIG members will get a discount to attend. For further information about the event please visit the NiPRO site : www.niproevents.com. TIG members in Nigeria, this is your opportunity to network at the beginning of a new year at one of Lagos finest venues-VINTAGE RESTAURANT AND GARDEN, PLOT 138 MUSA YAR’ADUA STREET, OFF IDOWU MARTINS STREET, VICTORIA ISLAND.

This will be an exciting and rewarding experience for all young Nigerians who will be in attendance.
