NiDCOM's Boss Commiserates With Families Of Murdered Nigerians In Canada

Rashidat Olushola Okunlade Writes

Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) under the leadership of Hon. Dr. Abike Dabiri-Erewa has disassociated itself from the self-acclaimed group called “New Nigerian Diaspora Movement And The Use of NIDCOM Logo”.

The Commission made the announcement on Wednesday to notify the unsuspecting Nigerians in the diaspora, thereby distancing itself from the self-acclaimed group that also used NiDCOM logo to perpetrate their acts.

NiDCOM statement reads: “New Nigerian Diaspora Movement And The Use of NiDCOM Logo”

The attention of NiDCOM Management has been drawn to a  group that calls itself ” New Nigerian Diaspora Movement” and the circulation of a video where the logo of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission was boldly used to package their activities.

The use of NiDCOM logo by the group is fraudulent, and mischievously attention-seeking.

For the avoidance of doubt, NiDCOM is a government agency set up to look into the affairs of Nigerians abroad particularly to support their goals in contributing to the development of Nigeria while they are abroad.

NiDCOM Mandate: Enacted by the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, provide for the engagement of Nigerians in Diaspora in the policies, projects, and participation in the development of Nigeria and for the purpose of utilising the human capital and material resources of Nigerians in Diaspora towards the
overall socio-economic, cultural, and political development of Nigeria and for related matters.

With the foregoing, we take a strong exception to the use of the Commission’s logo which invariably only shows that the group is desperately clout chasing.

Let us state categorically that the group’s goals and objectives do not align with the enabling laws that established NiDCOM and as such, we request that the logo be pulled off from further use and circulation.

The use of the Commission’s logo requires approval, for this instance, no such thing exists.

At NiDCOM, we remain committed to the goals and objectives of supporting Nigerians abroad to partner with the government of Nigeria through the use of their skills, knowledge, and expertise. We will continue to engage with Nigerians abroad to work with Nigerians at home to build a Nigeria of our dreams as specified in the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
