We had the honor of receiving representatives from The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) on Friday 1st April, 2022 at the National Secretariat HQ, Lagos State. ASSBIFI has a longstanding relationship with FES.
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest German political foundation. Founded in 1925, FES is a private, not-for-profit organization committed to the values of social democracy. The FES work towards the promotion of freedom, solidarity, and social justice. FES pursues these aims through its programs of political education, international cooperation, scholarships, and research both in Germany and internationally. FES maintains more than 100 offices worldwide, of which 24 are located in Africa. The Nigeria Office (now in Abuja and Lagos) began operation in 1976. As a non-profit institution, they organize their work autonomously and independently. They also partner with Nigerian Civil Society Organizations, Government and labor market institutions.
Your visit to us is historic, we truly appreciate it and we look forward to a more solidified relationship.
