Just as the business world is changing in the new global economy amid the digital age, libraries of all types are also undergoing drastic changes. Within the last few years, there has been a great deal of excitement and investment in the building of digital libraries as an extension of library’s current role in the networked environment.

ON A BUSINESS TRIP TO NIGERIA?

Most Nigerians of the caliber that you are likely to do business with speak some level of English language. It is the lingua franca in Nigeria. Greetings are by handshake and occasional embrace if already familiar with the host. Pecks and hand-kissing are rare, except among those that have lived in societies where such practice is commonplace. While in a meeting, avoid discussing politics, puns, tantrums or condemnation of any politicians and government as you may never know where the allegiance of your host lies.

Do not be surprised to listen to your host make frequent reference to God during the meeting. Nigerians are deeply religious and are mainly Christians and Muslims. There are more Christians in Southern Nigeria and vice-versa. They are very optimistic people and have once won the top spot as the happiest people on earth.

Nigerians like to be told that their city and country is good and you look forward to another visit. They also like being told that they are hospitable and kind people. If you must discuss extra business issues, let it be sports, especially football and the European league! These may earn you more attention and possibly quicken the negotiation process. Any gift, no matter how small, from your country is appreciated. Nigerians are great hosts and you would be amazed at the reception that you may be accorded, especially if on their invitation.

Final Note: Be georeferenced. Take a local with you.

Starting 2017 like this...

When the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn't stop me, no no
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me...
