About organization
NIDO Poland

Promoting the Welfare of Nigerians and the Development of Nigeria

The Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO) Poland is an umbrella body for Nigerians living in Poland. It is a non-governmental and non-partisan organisation. NIDO Poland is one of the 19 chapters of NIDO Europe, which has its headquarters in London.
NIDO Europe itself is one of the five continental zones of NIDO Worldwide. The other zones are NIDO Africa, NIDO Asia, NIDO Oceania and NIDO Americas.
NIDO is the single representative body recognized by the Federal Government of Nigeria as the umbrella organization for Nigerians in the Diaspora.

NIDO was initiated by then President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2000 as a quasi-official body for Nigerian professionals working abroad, which is expected to act as a vehicle to mobilise diaspora human, financial and other resources to support national development efforts.

In September 2000, the Nigerian High Commission in London hosted, on the instruction of the then president, a seminar for Nigerians with recognised professions who were resident in Europe. Over 500 people participated in the forum. The meeting laid the groundwork for the formation of NIDO Europe, which was officially launched in London on 26 October 2002.


NIDO Poland was registered in Poland as a legal entity on 11th of April 2022.
