FG Moves to Evacuate Nigerians from Abroad_Ada Nkong

The Federal government has initiated plans to evacuate Nigerians in Diaspora.
A statement signed by Abdur-Rahman Balogun ,Head, Media and Public Relations Unit NIDCOM says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has directed all its missions abroad to compile lists of willing nationals who wanted to come back home.

Balogun quotes Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), as saying
“the interested Nigerians are advised to inform the missions in the various countries they are in, who will then collate and coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs”.

She, however, said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has instructed that the financial implications will be borne by the prospective evacuees, who will be compulsorily quarantined when they return.

To this end, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa urged Nigerians stranded abroad willing to return home to key into this Federal Government gesture by providing their information to the mission in their respective host countries.

She noted that while embassies in several countries are also on lockdown, those interested could also go online and fill a form provided on the commission’s website: https://nidcom.gov.ng/form101/
