He said that four of the returnees were brought back with various degrees of health challenges.

International Organisation for Migration

He said that the returnees were brought back to the country by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) through a voluntary repatriation programme for distressed persons.

“They had left the country to seek greener pasture in various European countries but could not afford to return when their journey became frustrated, ” he said.

Habib admonished Nigerians to adopt positive attitude toward life challenges instead of seeking greener pastures in foreign lands.

Federal Government

He assured them that the Federal Government was conscious of the aspirations of the youth and was providing an enabling environment where everyone would achieve his full potential.

Federal Government

Habib assured them that the Federal Government was not relenting in giving them the opportunity to enjoy level playing grounds to achieve their potential.

He admonished them to shun social vices and look inwards and avail themselves of countless opportunities in the country.

“It is normal in life to struggle for better and improved livelihood but in the struggle we must avoid endangering our lives.

“I wish to state that there is no where in the world that its citizens will not have to strive in attaining good life within the limited resources available in that country.

“Nigeria is well endowed far more than most countries that young Nigerians are travelling to in seeking greener pastures that are no longer there.

“What we need to do is for all of us to look inward and avail ourselves of the countless opportunities in Nigeria.

“The present government has been providing enabling environment for us to thrive and will continue to cooperate with development partners in creating level playing grounds for all Nigerians in the country,” he added.
