The appointment of Abike Dabiri-Erewa as Chairman/CEO of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission has on Thursday been confirmed by the Nigerian Senate.

The report was presented to the Senators by Senator Rose Oko during Thursday’s plenary of the upper legislative chamber.

Naija News reports Dabiri-Erewa, is a former member of the House of Representatives and currently, the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Diaspora Affairs.

Recall Dabiri-Erewa has been spearheading the quest to see Nigerians in the diaspora get better security and fight for their rights.

Recently, she won a major victory in getting the authorities in Saudi Arabia to release Zainab Aliyu, a Nigerian wrongly accused of smuggling Tramadol into the country.

Following investigations by the Nigerian government, it was revealed that the drug was planted in Zainab’s luggage by a cartel that specialises in planting drugs in the bags of unsuspecting travellers.
