NNAU members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world's most persistent issues. Our 50+ club membership will work together to:
Promote peace & Unite
Fight preventable diseases
Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
Save mothers and children
Grow local economies
Be our brother's keeper's, provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance understanding amongst Nigerian people, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and emerging community leaders.
Together, we see a world where Nigerian people can unite and take action to create lasting change's across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
In our somewhat comfortable North American environment we see the world differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges back home in unique ways we believed our major issues and problems can be solve if our leaders start thinking about whole instead of just few. NNAU members think differently and will apply leadership and expertise to social issues and find unique solutions. From example, the problems in every parts of Nigeria from Ondo to Akwa-Ibom and from Sokoto to Imo states are the same our leaders are not meeting the challenges of the Nigerian people, they are corrupt and greedy. NNAU is non political but we support any leader(s) that deliver for the people.
We aspire to act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance will create lasting change. We want to make a difference at home, around the world and make Nigerians at home very proud of us: Our members can be found in your community and across North America doing positive things.
Our memberships are Nigerian residence of North America (Canada/USA). At some point we would allow Nigerians in Europe to obtain membership. As a global network we aspire to build a world where Nigerian people unite and take action to create lasting change. NNAU values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, tribes, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
NNAU started with the vision of two women Agnes Smith, Flora Mari and our first President, Dr, Kanshio Iye. These are the pacesetters with the vision to expound our mission Be Your Brother's Keeper. As Agnes Smith rightly said at end of 2019: Nigeria is 8,000 miles from home. Rich or poor we all need a friend or two at some point when we are happy or sad. NNAU is the beginning of building a home from home with strong family connections with fellow Nigerians. Over time, NNAU's reach and vision will be extended to other humanitarian services we cherish and our members will build long track record of addressing challenges at home, in our immediate communities and around the world.
Whatever NNAU mean in the end will be measured by the results we achieves.
