30,000 Nigerians Set to be deported from European Country
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama said a new process that will facilitate the smooth repatriation of over 30,000 illegal Nigerian migrants back to the country is being processed by Germany
He made this known when he received the Security Adviser to the President of Germany, Dr Jan Hecker, and his team in Abuja.
The new proposal, according to Onyeama, is predicated on perceived failures and slow pace of the current system of repatriation. This, he said, involved both the participation of Nigerian embassies and consulate and the German immigration office.
Onyeama said that in the last two years only about 200 Nigerians had returned to the country out of about 30,000 and the Germans were not happy that the system we have in place at the moment is certainly not working to their satisfaction.” he said the new process essentially entailed that once all legal processes had been exhausted, Nigeria should trust them (Germany), to make right decision on who should be repatriated.
