Impressed by the production of the repackaged Diaspora Newsletter, Chairman/CEO Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has announced that the Commission will soon float a Diaspora radio station.
She broke the news when the staff of the Media, Public Relations and Protocols Unit of the Commission led by the Head of the Unit Abdur-Rahman Balogun presented her with copies of the newly-produced official newsletter in Abuja.
The NiDCOM boss said the production of the newsletter will give those in the Diaspora some participatory responsibility and afford them the opportunity to know what is going in the commission.
She said that very soon, the commission will launch its online diaspora radio aimed at reaching out to the targeted audience by projecting the activities of Nigerians in the Diaspora.
Dabiri-Erewa therefore urged members of the staff in the unit to redouble their efforts and live up to the expectations.
Responding, Balogun, told her that the Newsletter was produced in record time with the support given to the unit by the chairman and the dedication of the staff.
He thanked the commission’s boss for her magnanimity, and commended the team for their efforts.
In the same vein, the Deputy Head of Unit, Mr. Gabriel Odu, stated that the unit, being the engine room of the commission, is known for excellence; thus thanked the NiDCOM boss for her support and mentorship of the staff.
The Diaspora Newsletter is another media product for the commission which kicked off with the publication of relaunched August edition.
It is in addition to the weekly Diaspora programme on NTA Network and Diaspora Quarterly Magazine.
