Buziness Africa interviews Arch. Eric Eyutchae on Booming Urban Construction














































Being address by Mr. Rex Essenowo, The chairman of NIDO Russia,

On the occasion of the Nigerian Diaspora Day 2019

   Date: 25th July 2019

As Nigerians and representatives from the Nigerian Diaspora worldwide storm Abuja, the nation's capital today for the Diaspora Day celebration, I send greetings from the Russia Federation, and on behalf of NIDO Russia and the Diaspora community, I congratulate everyone for making this day real, most especially, thanks to the grand Patron of the Nigerian Diaspora movement, our former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who gave the first impetus to mobilize our valuable resources and set this day aside for the new orientation, and the Federal Government for relentless efforts to harness Diaspora resources despite many years of difficulties..

It's been 19 years now since the Diaspora movements began with the creation of the Nigerian In Diaspora Organisation (NIDO), with the motto: "in pursuance of National development"

Despite all odds, the Nigerian Diaspora has proven its worth in different aspects of our daily lives both in Nigeria and within the Diaspora. It is on record that, for the past two decades, the Nigerian Diaspora remains the major income booster, which delivers extensive support to families at home, and also provides additionally funds in keeping the entire nation afloat. These remittances remain, top 5 globally, are crucial to the nation's survival; the hard earned monies equate with, or even sometimes exceed our national budget.


The Diaspora is gradually coming home together with Private Investments, as well as, foreign direct Investments (FDI). Apart from all stated above, the Diaspora still has huge reserves, untapped both in skills and capital. We are also working out new modalities to build and expand our market potentials for Nigerian companies oversee. It is therefore inevitable to intensify our collective efforts made by Diaspora citizens and the Federal government, exploring new opportunities through effective use of the Nigerian Diaspora commission (NIDCOM), led by Hon. Abike Dabiri.
We must join hands together to stand out stronger to the commitments of building a greater nation, where every citizen feels part and parcel of the progress, where love, peace and unity reign supreme, as originally envisaged by our founding fathers.

With the enormous resources of the Diaspora, the extensive human capital and expertise which are much needed for national development; the government must make bolder steps forward, by engaging the Diaspora in more professional ways through the Diaspora Commission, key ministries, departments, agencies and very importantly, in partnership with various state governments of the Federation.

The experiences, consultations, multi level interactions we’ve been making to engage the government must also be intensified at the States and Local government levels while dealing with outstanding developmental issues that the nation is facing. Where we succeeded, we continue, where we failed, we need to seek and apply new solutions. That is why it is important that, our Diaspora dialogues, national dialogues and policy reforms continue until all solutions are brought to the table and applied successfully for the betterment of the lives of the masses.

There is no doubt, every great country is not without problems, but we must also understand that there is no problem without a solution; so therefore, we must begin to look inward, work out new strategies with the Federal government to spin up lasting solutions.

The national Assembly and the executive branch must do all that is possible to execute new development policies; this implies fundamental legislative inputs that will enhance better results in economic planning and implementation of policies, so as to guarantee youth empowerment, adequate job creation and infrastructural development. These are needed reforms that will enable sustainable economic growth in Nigeria and the African continent. By so doing we shall overcome most of our challenges, and as well, provide better lives for the wellbeing of our citizens.
We must be well prepared to take active and leading role in the Africa Continental Free Trade Area which we joined last week.

Finally, I want to draw the attention of H.E, President Muhamadu Buhari to our national plight

-POWER SUPPLY! As you already know, Nigerians are hungry for light; many citizens of this great nation are dying of acute deficit of power generation, lack of uninterrupted power supply, pollution and health issues caused by emission from stand-by generators. Most of the challenges in fighting crime by the law enforcement agencies can also be attributed to this issue. The damages and losses caused by this problem to lives, national security and the whole economy, are terribly high and beyond imaginations.

We can no longer talk about generating Megawatts with a population of over 200 million people. Long before now, we should be talking about Gigawatts. This is because, Nigeria needs, nothing less than 2 Gigawatts to begin a smooth journey to the future.

We've been late in taking the right decisions, hence the need for a more pragmatic and suitable approach to trigger the right solution. I am quite convinced that, with strong determination, commitments and the right cooperation with our Diaspora host countries, the solution is available and achievable within the shortest possible time.


Mr. President, Sir, I call on you to task the Ministry of Energy and all related agencies, incoming Ministers and Heads of Departments to bring out a new master plan that is capable of dealing with this issue, once and for all.

If the distribution companies are incapable of handling their jobs, there is need for additional measures, a swift action, together with the National Assembly, which may include, amendment of the current legislation on power generation and distribution; and if need be, declare a state of emergency in the power sector, until the situation is resolved.

This will guarantee accurate assessment, adequate intervention, and timely correction of avoidable mistakes which will guarantee effective management and success of the further reform process.
The Diaspora reiterates its commitments to National development; we wish you a very successful formation of your new government with the incoming Ministers, and a very successful second term with all your election promises, fulfilled.


Thank you and God bless you!

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!!

God bless Africa and the Diaspora!!!
