Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission NIDCOM, has responded after activist, Aisha Yesufu, called her out for blocking someone on Twitter.
Over the weekend, Ms.Yesufu shared a screenshot of Dabiri-Erewa’s Twitter handle and wrote
”Imagine a public servant like @abikedabiri blocking someone. How pathetic! If you do not want to be held accountable then resign. Nobody asked you to do the job. They are not interacting with your personal self, they are interacting with your official self that is serving.”
When a Twitter handle pointed out that she has the right to block anyone since it is her personal handle, Ms. Yesufu responded
”Personal handle with Chairman on it? Biko, rate yourself high!
Responding via her Twitter handle, Ms. Dabiri-Erewa pointed out that she can block anyone she wants to block at any time.
