Another set of 164 Nigerian returnees from Libya have been brought back into the country by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in the early hours Friday.
The returnees were received at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos by the Southwest Zonal Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mr Suleiman Yakubu.
Mr Yakubu, who represented the Director General of the NEMA, thanked the IOM and the European Union for their humanitarianism on behalf of the Federal Government.
He also appealed to the returnees to learn from the bitter lessons they got in the course of their unpalatable sojourn and make better use of opportunities abound in Nigeria.
“There’s nowhere like home and Nigeria is a peculiar nation that God has endowed with bountiful resources that everyone can harness and prosper,” Yakubu said.
He further implored the returnees to make use of the available facilities which Federal and state governments are providing for self-empowerment.
