The general public has been notified of the immediate dissolution of the Executive Committees of Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO) America and NIDO USA.
A statement issued by the General Assembly dated June 6, 2016 and signed by Chiwuikem Ihediwa, indicated that the action became necessary due to a pattern of “gross abuse of power; including massive corruption, influence peddling, conspiracy, extortion, false propaganda against the state, nepotism, subterfuge, wanton chicanery, and flagrant violation of NIDO Bylaws.”
The statement further reads: “Accordingly, officers of NIDO America, namely: Attorney Samuel Adewusi (Chairman, NIDO America); Mr. Gabriel Ndubuisi George (Chairman, NIDO USA); Prof. Apollos Nwauwa (General Secretary, NIDO USA), and Patience N. Key (PRO) are summarily relieved of their responsibilities effective May 28, 2016. Any person conducting business with these individuals is doing so at his/her own risk.”
This decision, according to Ihediwa, is in line with the NIDO Bylaws and was reached after a careful deliberation by the General Assembly in a meeting held in Houston on May 28, 2016. An Interim Executive Committee will run the affairs of NIDO America and NIDO USA until formal elections are held. All local NIDO chapters are not affected by this decision and are thus advised to continue with their programmes, and committed to NIDO objectives and Bylaws.
