We're doing it again come October 6, 2012. Watch this space for exciting details. Join the conversation at the Nigerian Independence Organization's monthly meetings every 2nd Thursday of the month at Nigerian Kitchen, 1363 West Wilson Avenue Chicago, IL 60640 as our plans for 2012 unfolds.

Will Mayor Emmanuel join us on the float? How about other public officials? How about our Naija Music and Moive stars? Where will you be on that day?

Get your party clothes (green and white) and dancing shoes ready because the party hall has been booked.

Let’s go there
