I had a quiet luncheon with friends to say good-bye to the current USA Ambassador to Nigeria. The Honorable Robin Renee Sanders has been the Ambassador to Nigeria for about 2 ½ years. Her office and work keep her mainly in the capital, Abuja. However, she comes to Lagos a few times a month for meetings and various public functions. As she prepares to depart Nigeria the last week of August she took the opportunity of being in Ikoyi to have lunch with the American Women’s Club. It was a pleasant luncheon in a local Chinese restaurant “Reed’s” with mimosa’s, assorted appetizers and entrees. We finished with a toast and traditional American cake.
