Our Mission

NIDO’s mission is to promote the spirit of patriotism, networking and cooperation among Nigerians in the Diaspora, thus mobilizing the vast resources of manpower and machinery toward building a greater Nigeria.

Welcome to the NIDO America (NIDOA) Chicago Chapter website. NIDOA Chicago Chapter represents a coalition of Nigerian professionals and Community Associations in the Illinois and Indiana region. The organization exists to provide an effective and unified platform for Chicagoland-based Nigerian diasporans to harness their talents, expertise, and resources to aid in Nigeria's economic and social development.

Our Vision
​The core vision of NIDO Americas, deeply rooted in the organization's firm belief that Diaspora Nigerians can make significant contributions to Nigeria, is to develop effective modes—through programs, policies, and advocacy for Nigerians abroad to harness their talents, expertise, and resources for Nigeria's development and nation building. NIDO Americas believes that this overriding framework and philosophy resonates with every Nigerian man, woman, and organization abroad, and sets the foundation for a profound opportunity to unite, collaborate, and effect needed change in our Homeland and beyond.
