Central Association of Nigerians in the United Kingdom
The Central Association of Nigerians in the United Kingdom (CANUK) was formed by the Nigeria High Commission in the United Kingdom in 2005 in recognition of a clear need to unite the various Nigerian groups under one umbrella organisation. This ensures that the welfare, views, and community interests of Nigerians in the United Kingdom are represented in a harmonious and organised manner and creating a forum through which their voice could be heard.

THE EXIT OF OTUNBA DR DAPO WILLIAMS
The Executive Council, Advisory Board and Member Organisations of the Central Association of Nigerians in the UK (CANUK) are saddened by the passing of Otunba Dr Dapo Williams a Community Leader, a philanthropist and a vast academician. He has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill.
He gave his time selflessly to enhance the activities of the Nigerian Community in the United Kingdom. He was a supporter of excellence and anything positive for Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
Dr Williams frowned at anything capable of creating division and stood firm to make his point where such was being perpetuated. He was a strong believer in constituted institutions. He supported an endless stream of charities and would gladly stay at such events to conclusion. His enthusiasm in service to the Community equates measurably with his zeal in private business. He was ever so professional and courteous while engaging with people.
He will be dearly missed. We pray to God to comfort his family and friends. May his Soul rest in peace.
