Dabiri -Erewa Seeks Diaspora Support For Change Agenda
Nigerias in the United Kingdom (UK) have been urged to support the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration’s change agenda to move the country forward.
This was contained in a goodwill message to the organisers and 57 awardees to be honoured at today’s edition of Uncelebrated Nigerians Awards (UNA), at the Mayfair Banqueting Suite, Chadwell Heath, by the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Foreign Affairs and the Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
She congratulated the awardees, noting that: “Nigeria is no doubt a blessed country with great people. Nigerians in different spheres of life contribute to the development of our dear nation whether they are celebrated or not and whether they are base home or abroad.”
She added that the 57 awardees must have contributed immensely to the development of Nigeria in one way or the other to have been recognized with the awards.
Dabiri-Erewa charged them not to rest on the laurels and to strive to do more for the country and to support the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s efforts.
“I would also like to use this opportunity to call for support for the Buhari determination to tackle corruption, insecurity and fix the battered economy, amongst other objectives aimed at bringing about positive change in Nigeria,” she added.UNA Chairman, Ayo Akinfe, disclosed that the guests for the night include a traditional ruler and veteran artiste, Mandy Brown Ojugbana.
