TBANUSA, 5050 Merge to Advance Good Governance in Nigeria

To Build A Nation, United States of America Chapter (TBANUSA) and 5050 Initiative have merged to advance good governance in Nigeria.

This was made known in a press statement jointly signed by TBAN USA INC and 5050 Nigeria.

TBANUSA is a non-partisan citizens movement focused on promoting the structural, political and electoral reforms that are necessary for fostering a united, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria. 

TBAN was initially convened by Professor Kingsley Moghalu after his run for the presidency of Nigeria in 2019. Prof Moghalu has since late 2022 formally withdrawn from partisan politics.

TBAN USA INC which is a 501c4 entity, is a diaspora chapter of TBAN, focused on cultural, civic, diversity education, and awareness training of Nigerians. 

Over the past several years, TBAN has participated in Citizens-focused initiatives including the highly celebrated Amendment to the Electoral Act Reforms of 2020. 

Working with Ready To Lead Africa and other Diaspora groups, TBANUSA co-sponsored the awareness training of Nigerian citizens to understand their roles and the power of their vote in a Democracy.

Furthermore, TBANUSA participated in the 2020 Nigeria Constitution review by submitting amendments for review. 

On the other hand, the concept of the 50-50 Initiative started in November 2021 as the brainchild of a US-based Pharmacist, Dr Izunwanne Kagha. 

5050 is now a registered Non-Governmental organization with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC)  of Nigeria in Abuja with the vision to promote health education, community outreach, and good governance.

With this merger, TBANUSA is expected to represent the combined Vision of TBAN and 5050 in the Diaspora while 5050 will represent the interest of the TBAN and 5050 in Nigeria. 

They noted that details of the organizational structure and operations of the new merger will be available within the next 30 days, adding that members of the public can write to info@tbanusa.org or visit the website at https://tbanusa.org for additional information.
