The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has said that three hundred and twenty six (326) stranded Nigerians in Libya have arrived in Nigeria.
According to Punch, Idris Muhammed, Coordinator, Lagos Territorial Office of NEMA, confirmed this development to newsmen in Lagos on Friday . He said the returnees were received in two batches.
He added that the officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons were on ground to welcome the Nigerian returnees. Muhammed further said:
“The country of our dream is unfolding. As you are struggling to travel outside the country, many foreign nationals are struggling to come into Nigeria as well.
Movement of people is naturally divine and no one is saying you should not travel but travelling across the desert is not worth it.
The Federal government is desirous to make every Nigerian contribute his or her quota in developing the country to the level we want it to be.
Let us all stay back and support the government in its efforts at refocusing the country.”
