Members of the House of Representatives, have demanded an apology from the Chairman / Chief Executive Officer , Nigerians in Diaspora Commission , Abike Dabiri – Erewa , for failing to appear to defend the commission ’ s 2021 budget on Tuesday .
Dabiri – Erewa was to appear before the House Committee on Diaspora Matters , to defend NIDCOM ’ s 2021 budget proposal .
The session was scheduled to start at 11 : 00 am but as of 12 : 17 pm , when the committee adjourned the sitting , she had yet to arrive at the meeting venue .
Chairman of the committee , Tolulope Akande – Sadipe , before ruling on a motion for adjournment , condemned Dabiri – Erewa for keeping the lawmakers waiting .
Akande – Sodipe expressed disappointment that the NIDCOM DG , allegedly chose to honour an invitation by the Senate instead of appearing before the committee .
The NIDCOM boss later showed up , about 10 minutes after members of the committee had dispersed .
She was seen going into Akande – Sadipe ’ s office.
When contacted , Dabiri – Erewa told our correspondent that she had resolved the issue with the committee and the hearing had been rescheduled .
