The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) says it has received another batch of one hundred and thirty-two stranded Nigerian returnees from Libya.
NEMA’s Lagos office coordinator, Alhaji Idris Muhammed, stated this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.
While receiving the returnees, Alhaji Mohammed assured the EU and IOM of the Federal Government’s readiness to partner and cooperate with all development partners in creating a conducive environment were every Nigerian will be able to fend for themselves to reduce the urge in embarking in irregular migrations.
The NEMA boss also reiterated government’s commitment to giving all necessary supports needed by the International partners.
The stranded Nigerians were assisted back to the country through the humanitarian efforts of the International Organisation for Migration and special funding from the European Union for the reintegration process.
