“We are convinced that none of the efforts of Nigerians in Diaspora will find a fertile ground in Nigeria if the leaders of thought and policy makers do not make our great homeland conducive for these efforts. Being a Nigerian is a difficult responsibility for this reason with great honour, we recognize those Nigerians who distinguish themselves in the areas of pursuance of national development, socio-cultural enhancements, politics, economic activities, professional advancement and other ventures that mark excellence” said Kenneth Gbandi, President of NIDO Germany and co-organizer of the event.
The theme of this year’s Business Summit will be “Capacity Building” referring to the obstacles that inhibit people, government, and organizations from realizing their development goals including corruption.
