NIDO Worldwide Leadership Communique on the status of Diaspora Commission

Recall that the NIDO Worldwide Leadership commended the 8th National Assembly (NASS) under the leadership of Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki (Senate President) and Honorable Dogara Yakubu (Speaker of the House of Representatives), on the passage of the Nigeria Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) Bill, in March 30, 2017. It was a promise made and kept. We specially recognized the tremendous groundwork done by Senator Rose Oko (Chairperson of the Senate Committee for Diaspora and Civil Societies and Honourable Rita Orji (Chairperson of the House Committee for Diaspora and Foreign Affairs), and indeed also all members of NASS both past and present for championing the passage of the bill. Recall further that on Thursday 06 July 2017, in our appreciation letter to the Presidency, we expressed profound gratitude to His Excellency Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, then the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for graciously assenting to Nigerians in Diaspora Commission Establishment Bill 2017. It was therefore my pleasure to handover a copy of NIDOWW communique on the status of Diaspora Commission to His Excellency Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on behalf of NIDOWW Leadership during his visit to Germany.
