Nümberg Germany: Hon. Gbandi will be addressing great personalities from 50 Nations in one big Global stage at the SPEAKERS’ ARENA live on Sat. 18th June in the great city of Nümberg, Germany. He will be making a case why Africans in Diaspora must justify the confidence imposed on them by the Africa union by designating Africans in Diaspora as the sixth region of Africa.
For example, Nigerians in Diaspora remittances (cash sent back home by Nigerian in Diaspora) outpaced oil revenue in 2015, as the $21.2 billion sent home officially by Nigerians abroad surpassed the $19.6 billion oil export proceeds for those twelve months. In 2016 and 2017, Nigerians abroad sent home $19.7 billion and $22 billion respectively, which were higher than the $10.4 billion and $13.4 billion garnered from oil exports in the same period. This held Nigeria economy and the Nation from economy collapse. Hon. Gbandi who address Heritage Abuja Airport correspondent shortly before his departure says the time for the great Diaspora return is now. Africans in Diaspora are needed now more than ever before to help lift the continent from bad governance, political corruption, and nepotism.
I am running for Senate federal republic of Nigeria not only to represent Delta North but also the Diaspora constituency, he told press team in Abuja. “I will be the voice of Diaspora and I will not rest until Diaspora Voting Right Bill is passed. I assured my people that I am coming with global competency, authenticity, and integrity for a robust and effective representation of the good people of Delta North and will take advantage of such global network for partnership and level development in Delta North for the well-being of ANIOMA nation. I am looking forward to personally and humbly receive the SPEAKERS’ ARENA Award 2022 in Germany, he concluded.
