NEMA Receives 105 Stranded Nigerians From Chad
NEMA Coordinator for Kano Territorial Office, Dr. Nuradeen Abdullahi, announced this while receiving the returnees who were brought into the country through Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano.
Abdullahi said the stranded Nigerians arrived at the airport around 10 p.m onboard Boeing 737-7k9 ASKY Airlines operated by Ethiopian Airlines KP9401 with registration number ET-ANH.
“The returnees were brought back to Kano under the care of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) from N’djamena through a voluntary repatriation programme.
“The programme is meant for distressed Nigerians who left the country to seek greener pastures in various European countries but couldn’t afford to return when their journey became frustrated,” he said.
