Nigerians in the US Express Hope for Their Homeland

San Francisco, United States—UPF-USA hosted a community of faith breakfast in the San Francisco Bay Area on April 25, 2015. The guest speakers were two Nigerian-American educators, Veronica Ufoegbune and Rahanat Abubakar, who are members of the United Nations Association (UNA)-East Bay chapter.

The women, one who is Catholic and one who is Muslim, spoke passionately about the need for change in Nigeria and hope in the country that the new president-elect of the country, Muhammadu Buhari, builds interfaith networks.

They explained the situation of the Nigerian schoolgirls who were abducted by Boko Haram and what is being done to bring them home. The audience was very happy to learn of the hope that exists for changes to take place in Nigeria and how people can support these efforts through prayer, donations and in other ways.
