In spite of the busted slave trade and other inhuman treatment, especially in Libya, many Nigerians would not like to be evacuated to Nigeria as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Briefing news men today, Wednesday shortly after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the minister of foreign affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, emphasized that not all the Nigerians in Libya are willing to come back to Nigeria.
“Certainly, it has to be those who want to come back home.”
He said that on hearing about the atrocities that are being meted on Nigerians in Libya, his ministry invited Nigeria’s Charge D’ Affairs in Tripoli to Abuja to give full details of what is actually going on there.
“We want to know how many Nigerians are in detention and are trying to come home. So, once we establish that and we are given all those facts, we are now meeting with various agencies like NEMA and NAPTIP to now arrange the evacuation process and this will be done in co-ordination with international organisation for migration (IOM) and see if we can very quickly repatriate all our Nigerian nationals who are there who want to return home.”
“The Charge D’ Affairs said a number of Nigerians want to come back to Nigeria and many of them do not want to come home.”
