DBS TV Morning Ride Anchor persons asked for my reactions to the above statement. My answer was simple and swift!

Appointment of “Diaspora Shadow Ministers” unconstitutional – NiDCOM; warns against move: A statement by Engr Dr. Sule Yakubu Bassi, Secretary of the Commission, on behalf of the Chairman/CEO, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said that the attention of the Management of NiDCOM has been “drawn to the so-called appointment of “Diaspora Shadow Ministers” by a certain Mr. Kenneth Gbandi, former Chairman, NIDO Europe.”

“A constituency that remitted over $65.34 billion in just three years [2018-2020] averaging 4% of Nigeria GDP, which helped save Nigeria from bankruptcy, deserves the right to be involved in policy formulation. Diaspora shadow ministers are a group of diaspora professionals & policymakers charged to shadow Nigerian Ministers to be sure they follow their policy outline and constructively point out deviations while making suggestions. So, its a diaspora policy tool. By the way, the freedom of association is far out of reach of NIDCOM, so their opinion is irrelevant. Anioma and Nigeria are ready for global best legislative practices.”

Vote wisely!
