Senate Confirms Abike Dabiri-Erewa As NiDCOM Chairman

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed the reappointment of Abike Dabiri-Erewa as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission for another term of five years.

President Muhammadu Buhari first appointed Dabiri Erewa as NiDCOM chairman in November 2018.

The president nominated her for reappointment on May 2.

Dabiri-Erewa was a former Senior Special Adviser on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora to the President.

She also spent 12 years in the House of Representatives as a member representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency of Lagos from 2003 to 2015.

At Tuesday’s plenary, the lawmakers only asked their former colleague to take a bow, paving the way for her to continue as head of the agency handling the affairs in the Diaspora.
