Made in Azerbaijan. The story of a Nigerian Migrants

  1. 1. TalkADA MADE IN AZERBAIJAN –THE STORY OF A NIGERIAN MIGRANTS
  2. 2. Migration is not a 21st century thing. It’s been practiced since the beginning of the world.
  3. 3. For about 8 years since I have lived in Azerbaijan I have been able to develop projects that have supported lifting war victims from poverty and provide paths to decent livelihoods. My record speaks for itself and it’s a legacy I'm very proud of. Nobody takes that from me. #IAmAMigrant
  4. 4. First Azerbaijan non-state Vocational Training Center for war victims, first Cooperative Farm for war victims, Irrigation for farmers, telling stories of Azerbaijan war victims on global platforms and forums, supporting Azerbaijan rural youth development. .. These are my records. #IAmAMigrant
  5. 5. … and of course your professional legacy pales into insignificance compared to your personal legacy #WeAreMigrants What a wonderful way to put migration into perspective. The personal legacy!
  6. 6. It was fascinating to learn about the fascination as well as ignorance of the early foreign sojourners to that part of the world.
  7. 7. Europeans migrated to Africa long before Africans even started moving to Europe.
  8. 8. Someone once told me that in every 3 black men you come across, 1 is a Nigerian. I can’t confirm that statistics but the point is Nigerians are everywhere, all over the world.
  9. 9. The proverb “burning the midnight oil” is still very true in Nigeria.
  10. 10. Wherever one finds themselves, you have to resolve on how to become part of the positive change. The question I had asked myself then was: how could I add to this place where I have found myself? There was no running; no going back; Nigeria is never an option.
  11. 11. I believe in the principle that it is a man’s talent that will make him stand before kings and prince.
  12. 12. The earth is constantly evolving. It is always on the move, so are humans too. So irrespective of wherever we find ourselves, we too can be that positive change. For me it was contributing to serving humanities, but it could be anything, it could be just finding that solution to one of the numerous problems in today world.
