During a live interview on channels Television with the Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has cautioned Nigerians against illegal migration, urging them to do proper research before travelling to other nations.
She made the comment on Friday in view of a growing number of Nigerians migrating out of the country, a phenomenon locally known as Japa
Dabiri-Erewa had recently visited some Nigerians at a shelter in Brampton, Canada where she said some of the asylum seekers are living in deplorable conditions.
According to Dabiri-Erewa, she said “So you can’t stop migration, legal or illegal. But let’s reduce the temptation to go and get into a tougher place.
“Don’t leave for what you call a greener pasture to what I call a ‘reder’ pasture.
“Where you are going to, ensure you have a job; somebody who is going to look after you.”
