Amid the ongoing evacuation process embarked upon by the Federal Government to rescue Nigerian students from war-ravaged Sudan, Nigerian universities have expressed readiness to admit the returning students.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday, the Chairperson of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
Let them (the ones from Sudan) come back, let us receive them safely, and then we take it. In fact, universities are already offering and have reached out to us that when they do come back and they want to continue their education, they should contact them, so all that shouldn’t be a problem at all.
“I think the number one problem is that you cannot be talking about continuing your education if you’re not safe so our focus and our anxiety is that all Nigerian students come back.
“President Buhari has approved funds so everything is done 24/7. So, the first thing for us at this point in time is for them to reunite with their families. The issue of education shouldn’t be a problem,” Dabiri-Erewa said.
The NiDCOM Chairperson who assured the returning students of safety noted that more Nigerians will leave the North African country today.
“13 buses of about 60 people have already left. We are hoping that they would get into as one later this evening, but we are monitoring them. It is not a very pleasant situation, mission officials are waiting to receive them,” she added.
