Federal Government Declares, August 24, 25 Diaspora Days

The Federal Government on Thursday in Abuja declared August
24 and 25 as Diaspora Days to recognise Nigerians in Diaspora as important
stakeholders in national development. This was contained a statement issued by
Mrs Ibukun Odusote, Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Secretary to
Government of the Federation.
The statement said the days were set aside to create an
environment for cross fertilisation of ideas among the Diaspora experts and
their Nigerian counterparts.

The 2015 Diaspora Day celebration will be marked with a
National Diaspora Day and Conference with the theme, “Diaspora and Nigeria
Change Agenda”.
“It would serve as a platform for dialogue, interaction and
collaboration by Nigerians in Diaspora particularly professionals who have
excelled in their various fields of endeavors as health, science, sport and
arts, among others.
“The event, slated to hold at the State House Conference
Centre, Presidential Villa, Abuja, will be declared opened and closed by
President Muhammadu Buhari,” the statement read.
