The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) has reiterated that the it has already put its accommodation challenges and their controversial ejection from their office behind.
NiDCOM made this clear in its reaction to a statement credited to the Nigerian
Communications Commission (NCC), which exonerated Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, from the forceful eviction of the staff of the Commission from earlier allocated fifth floor in the NCC Annex building.
According to a statement signed by Abdur-Rahman Balogun, the Head, Media and Public Relations Unit at the commission’s headquarters, Abuja, NiDCOM said, “We reiterate that the Nigerian Diaspora Commission has since put the whole saga behind it.
“While we know that he who pays the piper dictates the tune, we remain focused on our core mandate, determined to fulfill our vision and mission statement.
”We hope that all heads of ministries, departments and agencies would
continuously treat each other with respect, and apply emotional intelligence at all times, in the service of the administration and the nation.
“We look forward to the release of all our equipment which include over 140 work stations, computers, printers, a fully equipped call centre, amongst others.
“We are optimistic that all items locked up since Feb. 11th, will be released to us in good condition“, the commission said.
NiDCOM, therefore, thanked Nigerians, both at home and in the diaspora, for their overwhelming support during their trying period, and promised to continue to remain focused and work with diligence and determination.
