The spate of undiplomatic treatments being reportedly visited on Nigerian diplomats lately is worrisome, and indicates a defect somewhere in the country’s international relations. Considering that diplomats are covered by official reverence from shabby or even ordinary treatment, the government of Nigeria needs to thoroughly investigate complaints coming from Indonesia as well as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Manhandling and mistreating diplomats is unacceptable and Nigeria should take adequate note of the incidents; and in particular, take appropriate measures to redress the treatment. Nigerian diplomats should be accorded due respect anywhere in the world in accordance with international law.

Nigeria recently recalled her ambassador to Indonesia over the maltreatment of a Nigerian diplomat in Jakarta by immigration officers. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema said in Abuja that the assault took place during a random search by Indonesian immigration of illegal and irregular migrants in their country, following which the Federal Government summoned the envoy for briefing to express the displeasure of the country.


Singer, Emma Obi, aka Emma Nyra, is of the opinion that unnecessary comparison and rivalry stop female artistes from collaborating on music projects with one another.

In an interview with Sunday Scoops, the mother of twins said, “Comparisons between female entertainers have been very prominent in the industry. Many of us will never get the opportunity to work with one another because of unnecessary rivalry and comparisons that are mostly created by false narratives. I have personally not subscribed to such standards and have had the pleasure of collaborating with female artistes such as Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage and Cynthia Morgan. My fans have been quite appreciative of my collaborative efforts.”
