Through Nigeria, we see Africa
In Nigeria, we see millions of vibrant, motivated population, mainly young people, fired by imagination and relentless optimism. Through Nigeria, the continent’s largest democracy and biggest economy, we see Africa. The Africa-EU Campaign is about the long-standing partnership between two continents, whose shared values and rich history of continuous interaction have inspired collaborations to deepen democracy, protect human right, foster peace and prosperity, and uphold human dignity. We see the unwavering commitment, resilience and innovation that underline what we do in Nigeria. Through the EU-Nigeria Relations, we see Africa-EU Partnership
