The Udemba Group Ltd (TUG), one of the leading Nigerian group involved
in Engineering, Construction, Media and Entertainment, is proud to announce its participation at the first All
Nigerians Nationals In Diaspora's (ANNID) convention.
This event took place in Los Angeles from November 29th to December 2nd. Nigerians from various parts of
the world gathered for this first edition, which focused on free fair elections and security as a panacea for
sustainable economic, social and political development in Africa. It was also an opportunity to share
experiences encountered while doing business in Nigeria, to exchange ideas on potential improvements and
to discover new solutions or projects which will contribute to strengthen the economic environment, to
enhance the image of Nigeria overseas and to improve the standard of living in Nigeria.
The Udemba Group Ltd (TUG) was participating at this convention to showcase the existing popular
TrendCorp services and present Trend Media City Ltd, its development arm which aims to build Smart Cities
in Africa that will become the African hubs for the creative industry and home to businesses that will unleash
great wealth while contributing to knowledge and pursuit of peace.
"It was quite a challenge to organize an event of this magnitude, starting from scratch", said Chief Peter
Mozie, ANNID Global Chairman and Chairman of the Diaspora Advisory Council. "We are encouraged by the
positive outcome and the high quality of communication achieved. It gives us the conviction that Nigerians
abroad can reach sufficient coordination level to interact with the Nigerian government and bring about
ideas that will transform the Nigerian economic and social landscape".
"I congratulate ANNID on their First convention as it is building a momentum in the coordination of the
action of Nigerians in Diaspora", commented Mr. Uzo Udemba, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TUG.
"It was a unique opportunity for us to present our modest project, the Trend Media City. We strongly believe
that our initiative will contribute to grow the Nigerian economy through the implementation of a complete
integrated ecosystem that will empower the creative industries and bring them to the next level of success."
ANNID is the umbrella association of Nigerians in Diaspora recognized by the present Nigerian government
and works to reverse the brain drain in Nigeria through brain gain. ANNID also works to bring in the much
needed foreign capital from Diaspora Nigerians and foreign investors to accelerate the development of
Nigeria. ANNID held its first global convention in Los Angeles from November 29th to December 2nd 2012.
