The Mayor of the City of Cleveland, Frank G. Jackson, has declared October 1, 2010, as the Nigerian-American Day in the city. The Mayor made the proclamation to mark the celebration of the golden jubilee anniversary of Nigeria’s independence.

In a statement announcing the declaration, Mr. Jackson remarked that the proclamation is also a recognition of the contributions of Nigerians ( about 10, 000 Nigerian-Americans) living in the Greater Cleveland, most of whom are professionals in the field of medicine, science, engineering, academia, and business men and women.

“On behalf of the citizens of the City of Cleveland, I am honoured to offer the proclamation designating October 1, 2010, as Nigerian-American Day in the City of Cleveland,” he declared.

In another development, the Congress woman, representing 11th District Ohio, Marcia Fudge, will be the keynote speaker at the event scheduled by the Nigerian community in Greater Cleveland to celebrate the anniversary.

Part of this year’s independence celebration includes the extension of scholarship awards to Nigerians and Americans in Greater Cleveland, display of Nigeria’s cultural heritage and artefacts such as Nigerian dances and masquerades, which will include the Eyo festival masquerade, Ekwe dance, and Abang dance groups.
