Interestingly, the bill for the establishment of this Nigerian Diaspora Commission was spearheaded by her. So, now she has been confirmed, she should do well to focus squarely on carrying out this sensitive assignment effectively with LESS NOISE and CONTROVERSY but with MORE DISPLAY OF DIPLOMATIC MATURITY and DEEP AWARENESS OF SOCIETAL DIVERSITY.

Congratulations!

From NTA to stardom.

These incremental steps you have aggregated over the years are laced with experiences you can never purchase off the shelves.

I salute your resolve, dedication to duty and amiable disposition to diaspora issues.

Congrats!!

This afonja bigot. The problem with afonjas is they naturally support evil. Look at them above congratulating her. Lets see who she will lead when 70% of Nigerians abroad are Biafrans.

As a fellow Yoruba person (before I get bashed) I don't think she deserves this. She's too partisan and also I haven't seen major achievement since she's been adviser on diaspora. This is someone who has in past bashed disaporans open for criticising the President. If noise making and issue press statement is what makes "fellow Nairalanders" believes she deserves this, then I have to say our taste and understanding for round peg in round holes is worrisome. I believe she would do better as a media adviser to the President. Probably a suitable replacement for Garba Shehu.

They have built a prison for your children in Anambra. I hope your generations would take advantage of the opportunity.

It may be recalled that the letter seeking confirmation of Dabiri-Erewa’s appointment was sent to the Senate in November 2018.

Since November 2018 when the Presidency sent letter of confirmation to Senate. And someone will be hailing Saraki led Senate, someone who proudly cut budget for major infrastructure projects across the country, takes average of 6 months to pass budget, and took him 7 months to confirm a nominee.
