During the Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD) and African Students Association Africa Week 2017 held at the Columbia University, New York, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and the Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who was present at the event called on Africa to connect with its diaspora communities in order to improve development in the continent.

“It’s important that Africans in the diaspora connect with Africans at home; that collaboration is very important and that’s where the world is moving toward now.

“Africans in Africa connecting with Africans in the diaspora is very critical and you have a lot of successful Africans in the diaspora.

“The future of the African continent will get better if Africans at home and the Africans in the diaspora actually work together.

“And that is beginning to happen as we see in this function here in New York. So, we need to encourage it and support it.”
