The chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, was honoured alongside one other woman by the state of Delaware in the US.
Honourable Toluope Akande-Sadipe, the chairman House of Representative on Diaspora, was the other person who also received recognition.
The presentation was personally done by the Lt Governor of Delaware, Bethany Hall-Long. During the event, the Bethany reeled out why both of them deserved the honour.
She said that the state values their immense contribution to the relationship between the Nigerian community and Delaware.
Bethany specifically said that they are very much appreciative of what the commission had done through the partnership in areas like agriculture and culture. She added that Delaware cannot thank them enough.

Abike said that Nigerians are the best at whatever they do in the world, and when that human resource is tapped into, the country will gain better than what it is getting in the oil sector.
When asked what investment opportunities the commission is presenting to Nigerians abroad, the NIDCOM chairman said they are looking at sectors like agriculture, education, health care, and others.
