President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that his administration will not support illegal migration.
He said during a joint press conference with the visiting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. Buhari stated that Nigerians involved in illegal migration were doing so at their own risk. He said, “I’m against those my countrymen and women that illegally find their way to other countries.
“We do not, as an administration agree for Nigerians to defy the desert and the Mediterranean because they feel that there are greener pastures over there. We do not support anything illegal and indiscipline. “We do not support anything illegal and anybody who feels that his country does not value him or offer him what he should be offered as a citizen and decide to defy the desert and the Mediterranean is doing it at his own risk.”
