WELCOME TO THE SACRAMENTO ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIANS

Hello my beloved brothers and sisters of the Sacramento Association Of Nigeria in Sacramento, I want to use this opportunity to welcome every one of you into the beautiful month of October 2022 and also the 62nd independence celebration of our great country Nigeria.

Nigeria is a very beautiful country full of diversities, blessed with different religions, ethnicity but at the same time, we all have something in common, no matter where you come from or where you reside we are all Nigerians, It is this common thread that binds all of us together and inspires us to walk together with the spirit to make Sacramento Association and Nigeria at Large a safe country free from terrorism and corruption. We all indeed reside in the United States of America but our loved ones are back home in Nigeria, so we should pledge our support, pray, and give everything we can for the sake of the safety, security, progress, and prosperity of our country. We must remain determined to preserve all that makes us happy and bio-diversity is our duty towards our children because they are the future of tomorrow.

At the core of the transformation, we have been witnessing in healthcare and education. My team and I will ensure that everything we stand to achieve before the end of this year is achieved.

 a) On July 23rd, 2022 our association organized a business symposium and celebrated the youths who have graduated from high school, University, and postgraduate studies. It was indeed a colorful event that lit the faces of our younger generation who made us proud academically and those who got promoted in their different endeavors

b) we will extend continuously welfare checks on the elderly amongst us.

c) Coats for all children in the winter.

d) Increased Membership since inception in January 2022.

The great future of SAN is in the extension of a caring and loving hand to our younger generations, this will enable and increase our membership. We must be open to innovations as our children are far more knowledgeable and up-to-date in today’s world.

To further projects aimed at giving our youths their voice, we want to empower them. We want them to thrive on political well informed decisions so we can elect those that will promote technology,  good governance and security in Education, medicine and other infrastructure developments. They will thrive here in America and also in Nigeria where democracy is hanging on a thin decaying balance right now. We want to also keep ourselves engaged and ready to pull diaspora together to educate and erradicate  all these unethical and ill-advised leaders we currently have running rogue.

Finally, this is only the beginning my brothers and sisters. A series of reforms and initiatives will be introduced from excellent minds within us to grow this great Association. My regime is open,  and will not restrict anyone within the association who has good information that will grow the association because this administration is aiming at preparing the future generation also reconnecting them to our heritage.

LATEST NEWS!

UPDATE ON COVID-19Dear Brothers and Sisters,I hope you and your families, wherever they are, are all doing well. Nothing is more important right now than the health and safety of our members and the community we serve. Therefore, due to the current situation in the country and around the world, and in compliance with the advice of CDC and healthcare professionals for social distancing, we have canceled physical monthly meetings.However, because we have so many important projects in flight, we have decided to attempt our virtual (Online, General Meeting) so you can call in from home or wherever you happen to be. No guarantee how well it will go, but we’ll try.  In the meantime, we should be prepared that some or all activities planned for this year will be impacted as a result of the coronavirus. To what extent, we do not know yet. For now, we know:

  • The coalition of SAN, NAPAC-California, CAPCR, CAUD and PRONACO-USA decided to suspend plans for the Information Forum on the Visa/Travel Ban, which we had previously targeted for April 4th. The team will continue to gather information and regroup in a month.
  • The Special Event to recognize our high government appointees has been cancelled until further notice
  • We hope that impacts on other activities planned for later in the year, such as the Youth event, Passport Event, 4th of July, and Nigerian Independence will be minimal.

Please stay tuned for more information on the virus and any impacts on our events and our community. I wish you all the best in this challenging time. We pray for all of us, our host country, our country of origin and the world. Keep up your faith, stay positive, and adhere to all recommended cautionary safe behaviors and practices.

Stay Blessed!!
