Another batch of 95 Nigerians, who were stranded in Libya, have arrived in Nigeria under the Assisted Voluntary Programme.
The returnees arrived in the country with the assistance of the International organisation for Migration (IOM).
They arrived at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, at about 08:18p.m. on Tuesday, November 16 on an Al Buraq Airline with number UZ189/16/5A- DMG-MJI AD15:50.
After profiling, the data indicates that 60 male adults, 29 female adults, three male and one female teenager with male and female infants were returned.
The profiling also revealed that two of them were with medical cases.
The Libya returnees were received by National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), which profiled them.
On arrival, NEMA Director-General, Ahmed Mustapha Habib, implored the returnees to turn a new leaf by looking inward within the country that has been blessed with an abundance of resources.
He assured the returnees that the Federal Government and IOM along with other international partners will not disappoint them, and Nigerians, by providing enabling environment for all to achieve their potentials.
He further reminded them that the pseudo-greener pastures that many thought abound in foreign are not true.
With your experiences, you are in better position to enlighten anyone still contemplating of travelling out of the country.
The Director-General, who was represented by the Acting Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, Lagos Territorial Office, Ibrahim Farinloye, praised the efforts and assistance of IOM and assured the organisation of the continuous cooperation and partnership.
