"I am happy to tell you that in the past month, we have continued to enjoy an uptick in readership and engagement. For example, more people read and reacted out to us regarding our July publication than ever before. It is a testament to the hard work of the crack team behind the NPM brand."
Let me say a little about our feature for the month of July – Dr. Uzodinma Iweala, the son of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance. Dr. Iweala is more than just the son of Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance; he is the founder and CEO of the Africa Center, located on Fifth Avenue, New York, NY.
The impact of COVID-19 cuts across the world. In the United States, more than 40 million workers have filed for unemployment benefits since the pandemic gripped the nation. More than 100,000 Americans have lost their lives to the disease. Among the affected are Nigerians across different occupations. As we prepare to turn the page on another month, our thoughts and prayers at Nigerian Parents Magazine are with those affected by COVID-19.
While we salute our Nigerians at the frontlines, we are happy to inform our readers that the past few weeks have been extremely exciting at Nigerian Parents Magazine. Our desire to tell the stories of Nigerians in the diaspora has continued to resonate and garner support worldwide. In response to this global interest in Nigerian Parents, the Board of Directors have approved collaborations with a few corporate partners while many more are still being vetted. Please join us in welcoming the Muffin Sisters, Emerald Consulting Group and Kingsbury Web as partners of Nigerian Parents’ global partners.
