At last, the promised help of the federal government to the 150 stranded ladies in Lebanon who cried bitterly for help has materialized.
In a video shared by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Eerewa could be seen welcoming 94 out of the ladies at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday, August 12.
The commission said that the women will go on a 14-day self-isolation as a safety measure mandated by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control.
In the short clip, the ladies heartily sang the praise of Abike, the head of NIDCOM, in high tunes, for sending help their way on time as they chanted: “three gbosas for mama”.
As a response, Abike asked the women to also commend the effort of the Nigerian commission in Lebanon for smoothly facilitating their return back to their home country.
After they did, the overexcited women continued her praise songs with hands balled into fists frantically jabbing at air.
Everybody in the video was on a face mask and there was a safe distance between officials and the returnee ladies.
