presidentSpecial Thanks

On behalf of the Executives of Nigerian Community Turkey (Istanbul particularly), I thank all those patriotic Nigerians who devoted by sacrificing their precious time to support "team Nigeria" on the just concluded African Nations Cup football tournament co-hosted by Fatih Municipal Council (Fatih Belediye Başkan) in Istanbul. 

I am also using this medium to appreciate Nigerians / Nigerian Community members in Turkey including Nigerians in other parts of Turkey, who also sacrificed their times without minding that the tournament is shown live in television. Upon that we did not qualify for finals in both tournaments.

I strongly believed that our team has learnt from their mistakes which shall help them in subsequent football tournament.

May god continue to bless you all / Nigerian Community Turkey.

Prince Emre Magboh
President (NICOT)

Chinua-Achebe-picThe death of Africa’s foremost writer

Critic and cultural pathologist, Chinualumogu Albert Achebe is a great loss to a world where the wisdom of sacred spoken and written words is observed with high reverence.
A way to measure the loss could be the quantum of tributes that have continued to pour in from writers, Presidents across the world, the Senate of State of New York, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the National Assembly.
They eulogised Achebe as a penetrating writer with acute imagination, as a global citizen with outstanding concerns for the world’s problems. Achebe, like Okonkwo, the hero of his famous novel,
Things Fall Apart, at a young age, established his fame with his landscaping, Things Fall Apart, an imaginative narrative, which he wrote at 28. He was admitted to the University of Ibadan to read medicine, but after a year, he opted for English and found his passion in elevating Africa through the African story.
