Dabiri-Erewa gave the appreciation message when officials from Ecobank and the National Coordinator, Organised Private Sector, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (OPS-WASH), visited her in Abuja to present the symbolic Cheque from David Alaba.

She stated this in a statement, singed by Mr Gabriel Odu, the Media, Public Relations and Protocols Unit of the commission, and sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Dabiri-Erewa acknowledged the efforts of Nigerians in Diaspora, Europe (NiDOE) and its umbrella group in Austria in facilitating the donation.

In addition, she urged other Nigerians in the Diaspora to emulate the laudable initiative of Alaba, the Nigerian-born football player of the Real Madrid club.

Receiving the symbolic cheque, the NiDCOM Boss said that the gesture by the International Star, who was also an OPS-WASH Ambassador, is highly commendable.

Furthermore, she thanked the vision of the Presidency and the Ministry of Water Resources, as well as other stakeholders in pushing for a cleaner and healthier Nigeria.

As a facilitating body and neutral player in the project, Dabiri-Erewa stated that the project of building modern toilet facilities, aimed at sustainable job creation, will begin in Ogun State, Alaba’s home state.

Also, she urged Project Managers to successfully deliver in record time. (NAN)
