Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora
Commission, says the President Muhammadu Buhari regime will support
repatriated Nigerians following recent vicious xenophobic attacks on
them in South Africa.
The first batch of returnees, about 188, had departed South Africa on Wednesday.
Dabiri-Erewa, said: “The bank of industry will also be here to offer
some entrepreneurship programme and some support to start a small
business and there would be some stipends for transportation to take
you home and we will profile them and for those who want to get any
training, they will decide what kind of training they want to do and
the Bank of Industry will be there to provide it.”
According to ChannelsTV, some Nigerians were denied repatriation
because of issues regarding their documentation.
The TV reported that about seven people were detained for allegedly
entering the country illegally.
