 “Why 600 Nigerians Haven’t Been Evacuated From Saudi Arabia” –Dabiri-Erewa

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Ms Abike Dabiri-Erewa has responded to a viral video depicting Nigerians pleading to be returned from Saudi Arabia.

While Ms Dabiri-Erewa said she could not verify the video, she confirmed that 600 Nigerians are currently awaiting deportation from the Muslim country.

The NIDCOM Chief, who appeared on Channels Televisions programme on Friday, January 22, 2021, attributed the delay to the Coronavirus pandemic as both Countries bickered over the responsibility of paying for COVID-19 tests.

While noting that the 600 are now set to be returned home by the end of January, Ms Dabiri-Erewa urged Nigerians to shun illegal migration.
