President Buhari Advises Illegal Migrants To Remain At Home
President Muhammadu Buhari has advised illegal migrants to stay back home and find ways to improve their personal economies rather than journeying through Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea.
Buhari gave the advice when he received the Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Louise Mushikiwabo as Special Envoy of President Paul Kagame in Abuja on Tuesday.
“Illegal migration is now a major issue in Africa. Many dare the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea to get into Europe, and many die in the process. Or they get into trouble, as we now see in Libya.
“I don’t envy our position, as many Blacks claim to be Nigerians, even when they are not. Our Embassies in North Africa are now overworked, trying to identify the true Nigerians. Most of the reasons they mentioned for migrating illegally are untenable. They should stay here, and see how they can improve their own economies, instead of risking their lives,”President Buhari said.
