Northern Cyprus Is Safer Than Nigeria – Nigerians Abroad Slam Abike Dabiri-Erewa


Nigerians living in Northern Cyprus have condemned a comment from the chairperson of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, warning people not to travel to the country.

News360 info recalls that Dabiri-Erewa, had in August, warned Nigerian students against going to Northern Cyprus, saying many students have been killed in the area, which she said was not recognized by the United Nations.

However, reacting to the statement on Monday, the Lefkosa Coordinator of the Nigerian Community in Northern Cyprus, Daniel Oyelaja said that Dabiri-Erewa should apologize for misleading the masses.

He said: “The Nigerian community in Northern Cyprus says no to misinformation. The misinformation about the Turkish of Northern Cyprus is uncalled for from the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Mrs Abike Dabiri.

We are glad to tell the whole world that Northern Cyprus is safe.”


The coordinator insisted that Northern Cyprus is safer than any part of Nigeria.


He went on to reveal that residents of the country were accommodating and kind, while also demanding that Dabiri-Erewa apologize to all Nigerians in Northern Cyprus for passing a wrong information.

Oyelaja noted that the only problem in the country is the cost of living which is a global problem.

“Nigerian policy makes it worse by limiting our Naira card to $20 per month. That is less than 400TL and 400 TL cannot feed you comfortably for two days (N8000).

I think the Nigerian government should focus more on domestic challenges and please make home habitable for every living thing as we have in Northern Cyprus,” he added.
