The Chairman of NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has replied a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, who cautioned her against her ‘messy’ reply on Twitter.
Glamtush reports that former Minister of Information, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, on Tuesday knocked the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, over a Twitter reply by the NIDCOM boss.
This online platform understands that Dabiri-Erewa had called a tweep ‘Ode’ (a Yoruba word for foolish person) while responding to the tweep’s comments about her.
Ezekwesili, who described the response as “messy”, asked Dabiri-Erewa to “clean it up”.
It all started on Monday when Dabiri-Erewa threw more light on a fracas that occurred at an Indian university, which also had students from Nigeria.
Dabiri-Erewa, who reacted to the report via her Twitter page, explained that the incident happened on Saturday, following a football match between African and Indian students, adding that normalcy has been restored.
Dabiri-Erewa partly said, “Calm has returned to the campus. A few injuries were recorded, and further investigations are ongoing. The Nigerian mission had made it clear that the Indian authorities would be held responsible if anything happened to any of the students.
“There is already a written commitment by the Indian Authorities to protect our students. Any student feeling threatened should please report to the Nigerian mission in Delhi immediately.”
In the comment section, a tweep identified as @sensegiver1 said, “She should go to Indonesia and see how Nigerians are treated. Mumu (slang for foolish) woman supporting a failed government. She’s equally part of the failure. Eye service!”
