The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has reacted to a report alleging that after a meeting with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), it came into a conclusion that MTN, Shoprite and DStv should stop operations in Nigeria and quit the business environment in seven days.
Reacting to the news, NIDCOM released a statement on Twitter, saying:
Our attention has been drawn to a publication being circulated by @Nairametrics today the 8th of August 2019 that a meeting held yesterday between the Chairman/CEO of @nidcom and @NANSNIG ended with a resolution that @MTNNG @DStvNG @Shoprite_NG should quit business.
We want to categorically state that such news is false and malicious as no resolution or demand like that was made during the meeting. The Chairman of NIDCOM, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa made an appeal at a joint Press Conference Wednesday in Abuja to the Leadership of NANS.
And emphasized that justice must be done and must be quick too. Mr Tayo Faniran, Big Brother Africa Star who was brutalized by South African Police sued for peace as he is championing the call for an end to Xenophobia in South Africa.
We call on the general public to disregard any information that states otherwise. Thank you.
