The Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation, Europe, do not want to be left behind as the 2019 presidential election draws near.

They want to know the plans the presidential candidates have for them from 2019.

To this effect, they have announced plans to host all the political parties’ presidential candidates in Vienna, Austria.

The chairman of NIDOE, Kenneth Gbandi, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja said letters of invitation had been sent to the various candidates through their political parties.


He explained that the invitation was part of activities lined up for the Annual General Meeting of NIDOE, expected to hold between November 8 and 10.

Gbandi said the idea was to create a platform for interaction with the candidates to ensure active participation of NIDOE and its members.
