Mr Obadare was the National President of all Nigerians in the UK under the flagship of National Association of Nigerian Communities (NANC) from 2016 to 2019.
Whilst the National President and living in Medway, he considered having a Nigerian community formed in Medway and Kent.
In 2017, NCAKM was birth as an initiative of passionate community leaders coming together – Pastor Cllr Lady Lola Oyewusi, Tolu Olusoga, Pastor Paul Akinbadewa and Seyi Obadare followed by an official launch on the 8th September 2018.
The pioneers realised there was a gap of unity & togetherness amongst Nigerians living in Kent & Medway. It was such an idea that we felt there will always be strength in numbers rather than individualities of solving issues that are common to Nigerians.
Through the pioneers community involvement at all levels, it was realised that Nigerians have lots of common issues to resolve like health & wellbeing, immigration, homelessness, families on low income living in poverty, criminal activities, living in isolation and educating our children & teaching them our Nigerian cultures and traditions.
In 2017, the pioneers started the association by setting up a WhatsApp coordinating discussion group to explore how we can bring all Nigerians living in Kent & Medway together, thereby using the expertise and our different professions to solve our common issues & to showcase our culture, strength and collaborate with local stakeholders for collective community impact.
NCAKM motto is ‘Unity, Honesty and service to the community’ aligning our goals, aims and objectives with the National Pledge of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 🇳🇬.
