Nigerian-Canadian man celebrates becoming a citizen of Canada after 4 years of adding value to the country

A brilliant Nigerian-Canadian man, Bamidele Salako has celebrated a new feat in his life after being awarded the citizenship of Canada as a result of his hard work and contribution to the growth and development of the country.

Canada is one of the most popular destinations around the world for scholarships and other opportunities. Bamidele Salako narrated through his Linkedin, that he first arrived in Canada in 2018 and after just 4 years in the country, he has been found worthy of being called a citizen.

Salako explained that he worked with an organization called SAPO and another called Calgary Catholic Immigration Society – both organizations help new immigrants discover themselves in the Canadian market upon arrival to Canada.

“I am proud of the exceptional work I have done over the last four years with the SOPA Settlement Online Pre-Arrival and Calgary Catholic Immigration Society in making Canada🇨🇦a more welcoming home for other immigrants and enriching the Canadian fabric with my unique skills and talent,” Salako wrote on Linkedin.
