Oil Not Nigeria’s biggest export – Abiodun Brainard, Chairman ANIDWorldwide

According to the Chairman of All Nigerian In Diaspora (ANIDWORLDWIDE) Abiodun Brainard, a recognized organization for Nigerians In Diaspora

“Crude Oil isn’t the country biggest export he said “NIGERIAN IMMIGRANTS” are by far the country Biggest Export. In terms of annual Immigration, the total number of Nigerian immigrants grew from 448,500 in 1990 to 13 million in 2017 and 15 Million and counting at present.

The flow of immigrants remittance in 2019 is estimated at $25B, which is about 5% of Nigeria’s GDP.

The 2018 immigrants’ remittance translated to 83% of the federal Government budget in 2018.

For four executive years, official remittances have exceeded Nigeria’s OIL REVENUE. (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.)

Migration and Remittance go Pari Passu because without Migration there is no REMITTANCE.

Brainad AbiodunSo on Nigeria and its migrants in Diaspora, what does the country intend to do to make them contribute in their own way to the economic, cultural, scientific and technological development of the country? In certain countries, citizens residing abroad vote and take an active part in political activities.

What would Nigeria do to encourage its democracy to evolve toward such an objective? Nigerians in Diaspora should be encouraged to have closer relations with the motherland. Nigeria’s foreign policy should include all these acts for a more global approach to policy issues than in the past.
