Sudan: Complete Evacuation Of Nigerians To Take Place On Fri

Complete evacuation of Nigerians stranded in Sudan is expected to take place on Friday, according to the latest reports.

The first batch of evacuees arrived on Wednesday night and the remaining Nigerian citizens in Port Sudan and Egypt will be airlifted by Azman Air and Max Air.

Per a Punch report, boarding has commenced in Port Sudan with Taco Aviation carrying stranded Nigerians back to the country.

Additionally, 125 females in Port Sudan have boarded so far as priority is given to the females.

The federal government previously disclosed that the evacuation operation involves over 3,500 nationals but the aggregate number could be more as more than 5,000 Nigerians are believed to reside in Sudan, many of which are students.

Speaking on the ongoing rescue efforts, the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, stated if four planes were available to move at the same time, very Nigerian stranded in Sudan would be brought home.

AllNews Nigeria previously reported that an institute in the United Kingdom has offered scholarships to Nigerian evacuees from Sudan.

Prof. Marcel Ezenwoye, President of CIEPUK who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said the assistance by the institute, which is in line with the  Federal Government’s policies on inclusive, affordable and accessible education to all Nigerians, is also the spirit of ethnocentrism.
