The statement read in part: “Mrs Coker-Odusote noted that the self-service application, which will be launched in February this year, will be done in a contactless and seamless fashion.

“The NIMC DG further stated that since her assumption as the head of the Commission, one of her numerous lines of action is to form a stronger alliance with NiDCOM to provide quality service delivery and hassle-free system for Nigerians abroad.

“In addition, the NIMC CEO informed us that a Diaspora Focal Point Desk will be set up in the NIMC Office to resolve issues within 24 hours. The NIMC CEO commended Dabiri-Erewa for her forward-thinking strategy, having recognized the vital role of the Diaspora Commission and plans to work extensively with NiDCOM.
