Nigeria’s economy just emerged from a recession, and it needs all the help it can get to remain out of it.

That is why Nigerian professionals in the United States of America have inaugurated the Nigerian-American Business Forum to see how they can help the keep stay on its feet.

The President of the group, Mr Kenneth Shobola, at the Lunch in Florida said “the forum aimed to impact the wealth of experience of accomplished Nigerian Diasporas for the rapid development of their homeland”.

He said the primary objective of the forum was to foster a safer investment environment for entrepreneurial business in Nigeria from the Diaspora and the globe.

Shobola regretted the high youth unemployment in the country, noting that the Nigerian Diasporas had the opportunity to start changing the status quo.

“Starting from now, we are rewriting our stories; there are several Nigerians that have stood out as employers of labour here in the U.S and also back home in Nigeria.

“We are starting to make the difference and engage the lives of the Nigerian youth.

“Negative news is what you tend to hear much about Nigeria and these get magnified but they represent just few Nigerians.

“Therefore, we are standing up to begin to step in to correct such negativity and change the narratives,” said Shobola.
