President‘s Welcome Address
On behalf of the members of the Nigerian Scholars in Germany, Nordrhein Westfalen Chapter (NiSIG NRW), it is my pleasure to welcome you to this platform.
NiSIG is a non-profit, non-political and non-governmental association geared towards nurturing great minds. Since the inception of our monthly meetings in NRW, we have created a mutual ground to bring incoming scholars in contact with other students and working professionals who are eager to exchange information and experiences, thereby easing the `Settling-in-phase` for them.
In addition, NiSIG encourages members to embody their values and cultural heritage whilst striving to integrate into the German society. It is in this vein that we organize events, high impact workshops and seminars focusing on topical subjects relating to studying, working and living in Germany.
We urge you to join us on our path to greater heights.
