Nigerians living abroad have asked President Muhammadu Buhari to establish the Diaspora Commission to take care of the interest of Nigerians living in different parts of the world.
Coordinator of Buhari Friends Organisations Network, Mr. Charles Sylvester Emukowhate, told newsmen in Jos yesterday that the commission would harness and coordinate the potentials of all Nigerians living in different parts of the globe for national development.
Secondly they are also to be an amendment in the electoral law that would allow Nigerians living abroad to vote in Nigeria elections wherever they are living, adding that Nigerians abroad have repatriated more than N10 billion back home.
Emukowhate, who is a leading Nigerian entrepreneur in UK and Chairman of the Nigerian Entrepreneur Association, UK, said that Nigerians living abroad supported Buhari because they believed that he will fight corruption, restore peace and security and bring the expected change in Nigeria.
On what Diaspora Nigerians expect of the new government, Emukowhate said, “The expectations of people in the Diaspora is that we need good governance and accountability, which we are sure we will get under Buhari as a result of his pedigree. Also we are sure that he will fight corruption, ensure security of lives and property and restore discipline in governance. This will attract foreign investment in the country.”
He also said that the four points as enumerated by the president as priority areas, security, corruption, economy and job creation, are instructive and key to the success of this administration and to rebuilding Nigeria as a nation.
