A group of Nigerians living in Liberia has condemned a recent publication by a local paper, which quoted “prominent Nigerians” residing in Liberia as calling on their country’s government to recall its ambassador from Liberia.
The Nigerians under the banner, Nigerians In Diaspora Organization (NIDO) told the Observer that at no time did any “prominent Nigerian” residing in Liberia urged or called on their country’s government to recall their Ambassador from Liberia.
“This information is false and misleading and does not reflect the true sentiments of the real prominent Nigerians in Liberia, who applaud Her Excellency Chigozie F. Obi-Nnadozie for her excellent work. Our embassy now wears a dignified new look and we now have a professional representation of Nigeria and Nigerians in Liberia.”
NIDO said the authors of the newspaper’s article are confused individuals. NIDO also stated that a purported group, who calls themselves Nigerian Descendants or Naturalized Liberians, was the one soiling Nigeria’s image in Liberia.
NIDO has called on all Nigerian citizens in Liberia to get wise and ignore “the antics of these charlatans.”
NIDO is a recognized non for-profit making organization, representing Nigerian citizens in Liberia. One of its core values is to encourage Nigerians living in Liberia to be law abiding citizens and good representatives of Nigeria.
