NIDCOM CHAIRMAN COMMENDS NIGERIAN CITIZEN IN THE US FOR RETURNING $4000

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has commended the honest gesture of Miss Chioma Odidika, a Nigerian citizen living in the US for returning $4,000.


She made this commendation in a statement signed by the Commission’s Head of Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, on Thursday, September 10th, 2020.


Dabiri-Erewa revealed that it is a thing of joy that Nigerians overseas are making the country proud.


She said; “it is indeed a well-deserved award and a great opportunity to celebrate you. This is another victory for Nigeria, as another proud Nigeria is portraying what Nigeria is about and that is honesty. Thanks for being a good ambassador of your country Nigeria, you have portrayed the image of Nigerians in the diaspora as unique, honest and trustworthy immigrants.


“No legacy is as rich as honesty; it remains the best policy. We must continue to exhibit such behaviour in wherever we find ourselves. We must continue to be a good Ambassador to our country.”

Chioma, who hails from Imo state, said she received an email from possible scammers. They called her and before she knew what was happening, they had sent a check of $4000 USD.


According to her, “I immediately called President Tonna Okei (Ikuku Oma), President of Organization of African Unity SC who immediately called the Sheriff of Richland County and the Police of Columbia City took me.”


Recall that a Nigerian national who resides in Qatar, Michael Jonathan Asemota,   returned $441,127.99 which was erroneously transferred to his account in 2018.
