Another award of excellence was presented to Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), as well as the Commission, for being corrupt-free and ethically responsible for the third time in six months.
It should be remembered that in May 2021, NIDCOM was named as one of the top 20 excellent government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies for the year 2021.
Mr Kammonke Abam, the CEO of Profiles & Biographies, revealed this in an Abuja statement as an update on the firm's research and compilation of MDA accomplishments to honour President Muhammadu Buhari's administration's sixth anniversary.
According to him, the assessment result is based on the MDAs' ability to carry out their ministerial mandates in accordance with the administration's 9-point development program and his firm's evaluation benchmark.
In the same vein, the Photo Journalists Association of Nigeria (PJAN) awarded HON. Abike Dabiri-Erewa the title of "Citizen Advocate Ambassador" on October 21, 2021. This is in addition to numerous other accolades from organizations such as Business Day and The Guardian Newspapers.
