Ajibola Abayomi, the President of the Journalists International Forum for Migration (JIFORM) who doubles as the Media Adviser of project in a statement said the idea was conceived to further charge the Nigerians in Diaspora on the responsibilities of participating in the development agenda of the nation irrespective of their base.

He captured the objectives of the project thus: “The goals of this project is to enable Nigerians in diaspora tell their stories; celebrate their good side manifesting in remittances, investments, brain regain and sharing best practices learnt abroad; recognize the bold steps taken by them to improve Nigeria through provision of infrastructures and support on investments and bridge the existing gap between the diasporas and fellow citizens at home.

The book title is ‘My Diaspora Footprints’ coupled with a diaspora dedicated movie launch by Ms. Maria Ohilebo, the chairperson of NIDOE-Greece; Movie title is ‘Attractive Illusion’, citation of 40 stories on the Diasporas and honouring of those that retain their Nigerian nationality despite having legal resident permit, those making notable impacts abroad and connecting home through investments, charities, empowerment, policies, etc. and others.

The statement further reads in parts: “The number forty (40) marks a moment of transition, transformation and transcendence. It connotes newness, preparation, self-examination and growth. It is a significant number that shouldn’t be taken for granted.

“As signified by the project logo; the upper 40 represents 40 years of the “Nigerian Emigration Trends between 1981 – 2021. The project seeks to highlight the major wave of emigration history of the Nigerian diaspora specifically narrowing it down from 1981 till 2021.

 “The project will also lay out the path way to regular migration and the right mind-set coupled with expected responsibilities of the Diasporas to the motherland.”Other highlights will include sharing of our manifestoes and the book on the 40 Diasporas put together as the blueprint for the new generation of intending migrants”.
