The congress president,

The executive members,

The honorable congress members,

The chairman planning committee,

Distinguished guest,

Ladies and Gentlemen

First and foremost, I would like to thank almighty God for making today possible for us all to witness this great event and bringing us together with smiles on our faces.

May I also take this opportunity to welcome you all, and to extend a further word of welcome to everyone here this evening for our end of the year party

This year end of the year party of Nigerian union in Vietnam is certainly a moment that we should all savor and enjoy. If you take a quick look around you, I'm sure you will all agree that our Nigerian union in Vietnam has come a long way in the last few months

I am using this medium to extend my gratitude to the chairman planning committee of this event Mr. Jerome ezeneche (Blessed 10-10) and his team for their role to make it possible for this event to become a reality

It all started as a dream. Nigerian union in Vietnam envisioned the dream of establishing a world class union that will be an example to all Nigerians and Africans in Vietnam and would mold and guide future generations of enlightened minds.

As the officers of the union began work through our selfless service, it faced a quandary: there was very little support. There was no published analysis. Different stakeholders and interest groups did not pronounce publicly that they are part of the union because they were not well informed about the aims and goals of the union. We knew from our faith that it is fundamental to who we are, individually and as a body, but there were no markers or measures to guide us as we applied our minds to the challenge of enhancing welfare for all Nigerians in Vietnam. So we began this serious task by making sure there is discipline among Nigerians in Vietnam and preaching the good news to all Nigerians that if want peace to rain among us all, we must savor first for equal right and justice. The extent of this work became far more than we initially contemplated.

Within the last 4months and with the help of all Nigerian union executive members, the honorable congress member’s, stakeholders and well behaved Nigerians we are able to achieve what many never expect within the short period.

We all know what we passed through the first quarter of this year when many of us run to the seas but the seas were boiling, when we ran to the rocks and the rocks are melting, where many of our brothers were arrested and deported, were some so called Nigerians decided to spoil the image of our beloved country through their arrogant and selfish act but with the assistance's of the Vietnamese’s authorities and the way the officers of the union organize ourselves we are able to let the whole world know that not all Nigerians in Vietnam are bad.

With this and with the help of God, we are able to plead and convince the Vietnamese authorities to stop the massive arrest and also granting visas to many Nigerians to legalize their stay in Vietnam.

Within the last 4months, many Nigerians have been issue visas; many have secured their wok permit, and many more with their residential permit.

Many Nigerians have use this great opportunity to conclude their marriage rite’s, seeking for jobs and also becoming a director of their own by establishing a legal company in Vietnam.

My beloved brothers, year 2010 will be a great and year of fulfillment when we will go beyond all this and establish our union to be one of the best Nigerian union in the Diaspora.

Our goals for 2010 includes the following

1. Registration of the union

2. Ensuring total discipline among Nigerians in Vietnam

3. Assist in creating an enable and conducive environ for all Nigerians that are coming for business activities

4. Making sure visa policies will be more flexible to all Nigerians

5. Creating awareness through publication of Nigerian union magazine and visiting media houses across the country

6. Making sure that all the homeless amongst all Nigerians are accommodated and assisted with job opportunities.

7. Making use of the constitution of the Nigerian union in Vietnam to guide the image and reputation of all Nigerians in all areas.

For us to achieve all this, we shall need the help of all stakeholders among Nigerians, men of integrity and unity among ourselves with love and understanding.

We all know that nobody expect a Blackman with his trace from Africa to become the president of the strongest nation in the world but today His Excellence Barracks Obama the first black president of the united state of America have lay a milestone of artistic excellence for all of us to emulate.

In our daily taught, we should remember people like Nelson Mandela who fought for Africa freedom, Archbishop Desmond Tutu for his word on peace and our own Professor Wole Soyinka for his canvass for equal right and justice so that we can achieve great success in a short while.

Lastly I welcome you all once again to this great event and I thank our well wishers for coming to grace this occasion because of their love for Nigerians in general.

We should all feel free and enjoy a wonderful end of the year party because what the lord have done for us, we cannot tell it all.

May God bless us all

Thank you

Cam on.
