Nigerians can be found in most countries of the world. Nigerians are numerous in the United States and UK, followed by South Africa, UAE and other European countries such as Italy & Spain. Finding Nigerians in South America lately has been for me a surprise. Nigerians do well in most countries where they land. As a survey showed, Nigerians in the US are one of the highest educated migration groups.
Plus, due to the ever-growing and highly entrepreneurial Nigerian Diaspora, the country is slowly becoming one of the top recipient of remittances in the world. But the remittance market is still evolving, as well as regulations, as the country foster the innovation and transparency it needs while developing a sound payment ecosystem.
IMTC AFRICA 2019 in Lagos on September 24-26, filled with a compliance course, an innovation forum, panel discussions, keynote speakers, roundtables, and ample time to network with industry leaders, will be a gathering of the Who-is-Who in the field of African remittances.
