    An Encounter with ANPA’s Eminence Grise I was your typical ANPA skeptic – never been to an ANPA event, nor even met an ANPA member, but felt certain that ANPA was a “waste of time”. All changed in the summer of 2008 at a welcome party in Columbus, OH, for a Nigerian who had recently […] The post Countdown To ANPA @ 25 appeared first on ...

    In 2007, I met Dr. Yele Aluko who was the president of ANPA at the time and immediately I got it. I understood the vision and the mission.
