The Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) says it has put behind it the whole eviction saga of its staff by Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, Hon. Minister of Communications and Digital Economy from the allocated fifth floor in the NCC Annex building, Abuja.
Abdur-Rahman Balogun, Head, Media and Public Relations Unit, NIDCOM in a statement made available to The Precision NG however prayed for the release of the Commission’s equipment as soon as possible.
NIDCOM was reacting to a statement by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) exonerating Dr Pantami from forceful ejection of the staff of its Commission.
“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.
“We thank Nigerians, both at home and in the diaspora for their overwhelming support during this trying period , and promise to continue to remain focused and work with diligence and determination”, the statement read.
