We’re Nigerian Parents magazine. From medicine to education, from sports to mentoring, and from art to music, Nigerians are an essential force of human ingenuity. The magazine was formed to tell the stories of the Nigerians who, in big and small ways, are making our nation proud. We tell these stories with a great sense of nostalgia, pride, and passion. Most importantly, we understand the Nigerian tradition of raising responsible children with stories that elevate them, as well as make them proud of their roots. We toot the Nigerian horn because if we don’t, then no one else will. Join us on this exciting journey.
Our Commitment to Our Readers
We’re committed to bringing to our readers a world-class reading experience. We believe that this is critical to our mission. We aim to tell every story with a profound sense of nostalgia, pride, and passion. And as we relate these stories, we hope that readers will sense our excitement through the very nature of our words. We’re also open to suggestions on how to improve that reading experience.
Nigerian Parents magazine is for Nigerian diaspora, as well as for all those who harbor goodwill toward hard-working Nigerians. In no small ways, many Nigerians have helped in elevating the wellbeing of their host societies. Yet the stories about those within the Nigerian diaspora don’t reflect this fact. Our mission is to tell and celebrate the stories of these Nigerians. By telling these stories, we aim to build a stronger and even more prosperous Nigerian diaspora community.
