President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and Minister of State, Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, to commence the process of repatriating Nigerians who travelled to Russia for the FIFA 2018 World Cup and got stranded after the competition.
This was disclosed in a statement made available to newsmen by his Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, yesterday.
The Nigerian football fans got stranded in Russia following the activities of some unscrupulous travel agents who cancelled their return tickets and abandoned them to their fate.
The Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Aviation have in compliance with the President’s directive taken the necessary actions to bring the Nigerians back.
He stated “The Presidential directive is in line with the policy of the current administration to ensure the welfare of all Nigerians in every part of the world.
It would be recalled that the President Buhari administration has on several occasions ensured the repatriation of Nigerians from foreign countries like Libya and other conflict zones.”
