The Senior Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Dabiri-Erewa caused a serious controversy making public the names of Nigerians of Igbo extraction, who allegedly robbed a Bureau de Change in United Arab Emirates. Many Nigerians believed that it was done out of tribal hatred than working to name and shame, if not why was the same woman angry about another Nigerian, of Yoruba extraction who was executed today in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking, without calling her name out.
So, this memo was made by the writer to remind her of many other criminals of Nigerian extraction, who were not isolated for naming and shaming, rather their names were kept secret by Mrs Dabiri-Erewa.
Below is the memo:
By Peter Ekekwe
Dear Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa,
Mine is not a very long letter. Just to commend you for the “passion” that you bring to your work.
I believe like you, that when we name and shame the bad eggs tarnishing the image of our dear Nigeria, abroad, it will deter others from a life of crime, ABROAD.
It is in this light that I appreciate your publishing the names of the 5 robbers in UAE. You gave their names as Chimmuanya Emmanuel Ozo, Benjamin Nwachukwu Ajah, Kingsley Ikenna Ngoka, Tochukwu Leonard Alusi and Chile Micah Ndumodu (Ndunagu?)
Like you rightly pointed out “these five boys are a disgrace to this country and an embarrassment “.
Unfortunately Mrs Dabiri, you simply referred to the woman executed for drugs as “A Nigerian woman “. I believe you were in a hurry to address this very pressing national issue, that you couldn’t wait to get her name.
You also in the same vein failed to inform Nigerians of the names of the other Nigerians already executed for drugs and those on death row for the same drug crimes.
While you and your team are busy unravelling the name of the “Nigerian woman executed for drugs”, permit me to give the names of those already executed and those on death row. Am sure you will agree with me that all hands must be on deck to save the image of our nation.
