The President informed the Ambassador about several efforts made by the association in enhancing the academic and professional lives of Nigerian scholars in Germany, giving back to the country, and also changing the negative image and reputation of Nigeria in Germany.
The President further stated the association’s achievements in the last 5 years while expressing NiSIG’s grievances with the Embassy’s lack of representation and support (moral and financial) during the 2017 Annual Summit held in Hamburg.
The Ambassador, who was delighted with the visiting team, called for a stronger partnership between NiSIG and the Embassy, promising to support the association while thanking NiSIG for the efforts and achievements made thus so far.
