Millions of Nigerians have emigrated from Nigeria to other parts of the world. These migrants and their descendants make up the Nigerian Diaspora, estimated to comprise of anywhere between 5 and 15 million people.
Currently, there is a reverse brain drain going on as many Nigerians in Diaspora are lured back by the immense business opportunities available. It is our aim to provide support and services to these set of people in order to make their transition as easy as possible. According to the World Bank, Nigerians abroad remitted about $34.8 Billion in 2016.
The Returnees® is a platform that provides support and opportunities to Nigerians that have moved back to Nigeria or planning to move back. Our aim is to be a one stop shop for jobs, business opportunities and other services for people that have relocated to Nigeria. Our main objective is to make Nigerian Returnees self-reliant in all aspects of life.
We also envision a Nigerian Diaspora community that is in touch with the best of its cultural origins, traditional values, and is actively looking for new ways to develop and maintain links with our country.
Our mission is to highlight the potential of the Nigerian Returnees as a source of economic and social development for Nigeria. We hope to achieve this by harnessing their skills and building a network of likeminded and dynamic individuals. We hope a lead a revolution in every aspect of the Nigerian society, ensuring that best practices are enshrined in our everyday life.
