The Directorate of Technical Aid Corps DTAC has deployed two Justices to The Gambia to serve as volunteers and Ambassadors of Nigeria to their host community.

The Director General Directorate of Technical Aid Corps DTAC Dr. Yusuf Yakub during a brief pre departure orientation for the Judges in Abuja said they were nominated by the Chief Justice of the Federation to DTAC for deployment.

The Judges are; Hon. Justice Ruqayat Ayoola and Justice Mohammed Owolabi.

According to the DG DTAC, the two judges are chosen among the best from the Judiciary.

He said that DTAC was established in 1987, to serve as an instrument for soft power diplomacy in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Nations , and has been deploying volunteers since then.

“We have covered up to 35 countries from inception , presently, we have volunteers in upto ten countries and we have also extended our mandate not just dealing with bilateral relationships.

“But, we have gone triangular, because we also have partnership with other international organisations. Presently, we have volunteers in New York with the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP).

“Also, as part of our repositioning drive to meet up with the 4-D Foreign Policy initiatives of President Bola Tinubu, we also, extend our tentacles to others countries apart from the African, Caribbean and the Pacific countries.” he said.

He also urged the justices to carry Nigerian flag high, when they get to Gambia, “we assure you as usual, this Directorate and the embassy of Nigeria in Gambia will protect your interest and make sure you’re giving the best during your services .

Responding, Justices Owolabi, thanked the DG for the opportunity and promised that they will make Nigeria proud in delivering their mandate in their host community.
