The Chairman and CEO of the Nigerians In Diaspora Commission, NDIC, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned in its entirety, the attack on the Former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival which held in Nuremberg, Germany.


Senator Ekweremadu attended the event organized by the Ndi-Igbo Community in Germany as a Speaker and Special Guest and was reportedly beaten up and egged publicly.

Abike Dabiri says that the incident is an embarrassment to the country. Very shamefully pathetic that an event which was nobly put together by the Ndi-Igbo Community in Germany whose members are made up of Nigerians living in Germany to provide a forum for the Diasporans and other stakeholders to network for better cooperation between Nigeria and German businesses, ended in such a very disgraceful manner.

She appealed to Nigerians to be of good behavior wherever they find themselves, because an incident such as what happened to Senator Ekweremadu in Germany is capable of tarnishing the image of the country and ruining the reputation the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has tried very hard to build amongst our brothers outside the country.
