Sai Wine Café, with support from the Ghana Nigeria Business Council, celebrated 60 years of Nigeria’s independence at their new location in Osu, Accra.
Patrons including CEOs and Senior Executives of some of Ghana’s leading Nigerian and Ghanaian-owned banks and insurance companies, as well as government officials and executive members of Nigerian associations graced the event.
Guests were treated to all things Naija, with the Nigerian signature beverage ‘Chapman’ being served as the welcome drink and an array of delicacies including peppered snail, suya kebab, peppered gizzard and more – all marinated with a live band performing Nigerian afro-beat tunes, and closing the evening with a DJ playing all our favourite Naija tunes.
“Nigerians are our brothers; we borrow a lot from their culture and lifestyle, and this was a perfect opportunity to celebrate Nigerians and further emphasise our desire to ensure all Nigerians feel welcome and confident that we shall overcome any troubled waters,” stated Executive Secretary to the GNBC and owner of Sai Wine, Ms. Nadia Takyiwaa Mensah.
Mr. Reginald Laryea, Chairman of GNBC states: “We were very happy to support Sai Wine Café with this event, as we felt it had the best intentions and was timely. Key objectives were met, preparing the ground for us to re-introduce and relaunch our organisation in the coming month”.
With over 100 attendees including Nigerians and Ghanaians, the successful Evening was a reminder of the strong and longstanding relationship Ghana and Nigeria represent and uphold.
