Prior to her initial appointment in November 2018 as NIDCOM boss, Dabiri-Erewa was a former Senior Special Adviser to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora.
She also served in the House of Representatives as a member representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency in Lagos from 2003 to 2015. Dabiri-Erewa served as the chairman, the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs at the House of Representatives.
