We, the citizens of Nigeria, resident abroad, being aware of our responsibility to our country and strongly determined to contribute toward her social, economic, educational, technological, and political development, do hereby on this day, Wednesday, December 15, 1993, establish this document as the Charter and constitution of the Association of Nigerians Abroad.


The Association is non-profit, non-ethnic, non-religious, and non-partisan in all its dealings with the people and Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the outside world. However, the Association, when necessary, advocates for democratic ideals, human rights, the rule of law, fairness, justice, and equity in Nigeria and for all Nigerians. The composition of the Association reflects the rich ethnic and cultural diversity of Nigeria.
