NIDO-Russia is a Chapter of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Europe (NIDOE). NIDOE is the European arm of a global network of Nigerians in Diaspora, with Headquarters in London. Other continental arms of the global Nigerians in Diaspora are in the Americas (NIDO-Americas), Asia (NIDO-Asia) and Africa (NIDO-Africa).
NIDOE-Russia, as chapter of the NIDO Europe is established as a forum for Nigerian professionals residing in Russia to participate in the development of Nigeria. Serving as a platform for Nigerians to network, NIDOE-Russia is committed to tapping into the knowledge and skills of Nigerians in both countries in concert with other Nigerians in the Diaspora for the development of Nigeria.
Since May 2007, when a new impulse was given to the physical establishment of NIDO-Russia, the Organisation has resolved to continue to strive to greater heights.
The Government of Nigeria (at both the Federal and states level) recognizes the organization as the official platform through which individual Nigerian Diaspora, their community organizations, and corporate bodies can channel their developmental efforts to Nigeria. In this sense, the organization partners with Nigerian community / professional organizations as well as public and private businesses in focused areas such as Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), professional networking, stakeholder advocacy, medical missions from qualified partners support, technological and IT skills transfer to Nigeria.
The core vision of Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation is to develop effective, unified platform for Nigerians abroad to harness their talents, expertise and resources for Nigeria national development and nation building.
