The ancient city of Badagry is hosting some Diasporans, led by Dr. Julius Marcus Garvey Jr. and others in celebration of the fourth edition of The Diaspora Door of Return, from the 19th-21st October, 2023.

The celebration is organised by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) under the leadership of Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erunwa and supported by the Lagos State Government.

The celebration was designed to promote a unique opportunity for the Diasporans to experience a very symbolic and emotional bond with their ancestral land, and to witness the historical city where their ancestors were taken away as slaves through the Point of No Return, which has since been renamed “Door of Return”.

As part of the activities celebrating the event, was the naming ceremony of the Diasporans and bestowing of a Chieftaincy title on Dr. Garvey Jr. by the Akran of Badagry during their visit to his palace on Friday.

They were accompanied on this visit by Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erunwa, Chairman of NIDCOM, Mr. Jermaine Sanwo-Olu, SSA to the Mr. Governor on Diaspora Matters and Dr. Olaide Mesewaku, former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Tourism among others
