In a bid to enhance unity and development among Nigerians regardless of their geographical entity, citizens of the country has been enjoined to be an active member of Nigerians In Diaspora Organization, America – NIDOA.
Lillian Agbeyegbe, Vice President of the Maryland chapter group, made the call in a released video, where she revealed reasons that might interest anyone to be part of the commitment.
According to her, there’s need to establish a platform that will be meant for the country and its citizens at large.
She stressed that what helped countries like United States attracted to people, is based on the reason that the country’s citizens developed it.
“People of the United States, made their policy, their government, amongst other things.” She said.
It doesn’t just end at establishing a platform, Lillian maintains that Nigerians need to patronize fellow Nigerians. She said, “it is not just to patronize someone because he’s a Nigerian. Of course, we all know Nigerians are hardworking and intelligent.”
Lillian reveals that supporting fellow Nigerians will make them grow, as they do what they know how to do best even in the United States.
She further disclosed that another vital reason for joining NIDOA, is that the platform enables one to get exposed. She said, “We live here in the United States, we are exposed to a lot of opportunities and information that our colleagues in Nigeria do not have access to, and we can take that information to our people in Nigeria.”
If Lillian has been able to convince you to join the movement, you don’t have to worry about major requirements of being a NIDOA member. “You have to be committed financially.” She continued, “because we have monthly dues and these dues enable us run the organization effectively.“
More so, time factor is another form of commitment to the group. Lillian said, “we are building the nation and it cannot be done by selected few, we need everybody to be committed to the organization, make their time.“
Lillian further invites everyone for NIDOA’s end of the year party, which is before the much-awaited January meeting.
Speaking on the January meeting, Lillian said it will be smart for the group to sit with its members in order to deliberate on projects NIDOA can embark on and how the group tends to achieve it.
