Re: A Distinguished Recognition
Houston, TX: The Nigerian Union Diaspora (NUD), the umbrella organization for the social, political, and economic empowerment of Nigerians in the Diaspora, congratulates you on your recent appointment to the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum by US President-elect, Donald J. Trump.
Your appointment to the prestigious think-tank is a great honor to Nigerians in America, African Americans, Africa in general, and the human kind. It underscores the widely held belief that Nigerian Americans have the potential to play key roles in both national and global development. The honor is, indeed, in line with our earlier congratulatory message to President-elect Trump, highlighting the need to “accord the Nigerian nation as well as the Nigerian Americans similar attention as other leading countries of other continents and their immigrants in the United States, including but not limited to policies on trade, immigration, terrorism, global security, economic opportunities, social issues, and human rights.”
We are very confident that your record of high recognition in the academia and varied business experiences will help lay a solid foundation for the Trump presidency towards global economic stability.
We will be contacting you in due course to explore ways of enriching your role for the greater good.”
