Receiving the items, the elated NIDCOM boss, Abike Dabiri-Erewa said that with the donation, NPA has made her day.

“I have to thank my dear Sister, Hadiza Bala Usman for her thoughtfulness and kindness towards a sister MDAs in need. I am short of words. You have really made my day”.

“This is very good news in the midst of a depressing week. I want to say a big thank you for your hands of fellowship. This goes to show that women do help themselves”, She said.

The NIDCOM boss expressed her appreciation to Usman, the First lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Hajia Aisha Buhari and the Minister of Finance, Hajia Zainab Ahmed, for their hands of fellowship at the critical moment of the Commission.

Items donated were 20 Desktop Computers, 10 Laptops and 2 giant Sharp Photocopying Machines.

In the same vein, the Nigerian Youth in the Diaspora through Dr Dauda Abdullahi of Nigerians in Diaspora Organization (NIDO) also donated to the commission 100 pieces of hand sanitizers wherein the Chairman of NIDCOM praised the Nigerian Youths in Diaspora for this giant stride.

It will be recalled that all the office equipment of NIDCOM were trapped in the office allocated to it at the NCC Annex on February 11, 2020, following a forceful ejection order from the agents of Pantami.
