Lagos – The All Progressives Congress (APC)
International Secretariat has appealed to Abike Dabiri Erewa, the
recently-appointed Senior Special Assistant to the President Foreign Affairs
and the Diaspora, to implement issues Nigerians abroad were advocating for.
The United States-based organisation was hopeful Erewa,
appointed in February, would assist in that regard, saying her appointment was
in furtherance of her selfless services to humanities and a continuation of her
goodwill towards the Diaspora.
“The appointment came at a better time for you to
complete all pending diaspora issues which are well known to you,” APC
International Coordinator, Francis John, said from Kansas City, Missouri.

He said Nigerians in America were eager to work with the
Jos, Plateau State-born Erewa.
Among issues APC International want addressed include
enabling the Diaspora voting by 2019, improvement on $21 billion Diaspora
yearly remittance and facilitate the representation of Diaspora in the African
Union and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
“All these and many more will make your tenure
in office the most successful,” said John.
