Organization for Migration

He said the returnees were returned to the country by the Organization for Migration (IOM) through a voluntary repatriation program for the bereaved who had left the country to seek greener pastures in various European countries but could not afford to return when his trip was frustrated.

He said that upon his arrival, the CEO exhorted Nigerians to adopt a positive attitude towards life’s challenges.

Farinloye said the returnees are 67 adult men, 80 adult women, six men and four girls, with two babies (one male and one female).

According to him, upon his arrival, Mustapha implored the returnees to look inside the country that has been blessed with abundant resources and take up a venture that can change their lives.

“It is normal in life to fight for better and better livelihoods, but in the fight we must avoid putting our lives in danger.

“I wish to affirm that there is no place in the world where its citizens do not have to strive to achieve a good life within the limited resources available in that country.

“Nigeria is well endowed much more than most of the countries that young Nigerians travel to in search of greener pastures that are no longer there,” he said.

The NEMA chief said: “What we need to do is for all of us to look inward and take advantage of the myriad opportunities in Nigeria.

“The current government has been providing an enabling environment for us to thrive and will continue to cooperate with development partners in creating a level playing field for all Nigerians in the country.”

Therefore, he advised returnees to advocate against irregular migration to other young people who may think there are greener pastures elsewhere.

Immigration Service

The returnees were received by NEMA, along with other sister agencies such as: Immigration Service, Refugee Commission, FAAN and the Nigerian Police.
