Nigerians Abroad Remit Over $25 Billion – Hon Abike-dabiri by chyk1(m): 5:19pm On Aug 11, 2021
Chairman of Nigeria Diaspora Commission(NiDCOM), Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has reiterated the need to harness the huge potentials of citizens in foreign countries, saying “Diaspora Direct Investment(DDI) into the country, accounts for over $25 billion.”

‘Foreign Direct Investment inflow estimated at about $25 billion boosted the economy after the nation exited recession in 2018.’

Out of this figure, ‘Nigerians in Diaspora, accounted for the biggest net contribution to the FDI.’

The NiDCOM boss stated this recently, during a webinar, organised by the United States Government Exchanges Alumni Association(USGEAA).

Abike-Dabiri, who was the guest speaker at the fifth leadership series, spoke on “Partnering With Nigerians Diaspora in Social Transformation Endeavours: Prospects and Opportunities”

According to Dabiri-Erewa also a US Government Exchange alumnus, said NiDCOM was established, two years ago to promote human capital development, saying “there are approximately 14 million Nigerians in the Diaspora.”

The commission, she noted “is currently researching on various fields of expertise of foreign-based Nigerians, as part of efforts to enhance prospects and potentials for more partnerships.’
