Vote or Quench and MovebacktoNigeria.com joined forces to host “I Just Got Back! Building Bridges for the Nigerian Diaspora,“ an interactive panel discussion and a cocktail networking hour. With the hopes of “Africa rising,” juxtaposed with the harsh realities of challenges such inadequate infrastructure, bureaucratic hurdles, and the infamous “Naija factor,” a move back to Nigeria can either be an ocean of opportunity or treacherous waters. This event highlighted and presented (both the good and the bad) the opportunity to foster a collaborative community of returnees and Africans at home, where they can share experiences and lessons learned on how to make the smoothest transition.
The event was held on February 21st, 2014 at Four Points Hotel in Lagos.You can relive the event through these images here: SMWLagosVOQPhotos
