The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, commended Airtel for extending a helping hand to the returnees, saying that other corporate organizations should emulate the telco in helping the returnees settle down to life in their home country.

“Airtel has always taken proactive steps to help returnees. When we had returnees from Libya, Airtel was on hand to offer support; and now, they are offering similar support to the South African returnees. Aside these, they are also partnering with the Commission to further help Nigerians in the Diaspora. I commend Airtel for taking these fine steps,” she stated.

One of the returnees, Olasukanmi Obadina, was full of praises for Airtel as he commended the telco for showing love and care. “Airtel’s action is really thoughtful considering all that we have been through.
