The NiDCOM boss assured the mission that they will leave with numerous opportunities especially with the support of the Ambassador, noting that 34 states now have diaspora focal persons.

The Nigerian Ambassador to Russia, Amb. Abdullahi Shehu, who led the delegation, commended the Chairman for her hard work and resilience in championing the Nigeria Diaspora cause.

According to him, “Russia did not colonise any country in Africa.
Therefore, there is a gap in understanding the business opportunities in Nigeria which can be useful to the Russian Enterprise.”

Amb. Shehu said that one of the reasons why the mission came down to Nigeria to understand the risks in the investment and how to manage it.

He also expressed satisfaction with the commitment of NIDO Russia to National development, saying “Nigeria community in Russia and NIDO are very important to both local and foreign policies”.
