Xenophobia: First Batch Of 320 Nigerians Set To Return From South Africa Today by MrTrend(m): 6:57am On Sep 11
The Consul General of Nigeria in Johannesburg, Godwin Adama, has said that the first batch of the Nigerian returnees from South Africa would depart South Africa for Lagos on Wednesday.

According to Mr Adama who spoke to the the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview that the first batch of returnees, are expected to depart South Africa by 9:00 a.m Wednesday.

The consul general also disclosed that Air peace had indicated interest to evacuate over 600 Nigerians that were willing to return home following the latest xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

“The first flight leaves by 09:00 hours this Wednesday with about 320 passengers and the second batch will leave on Thursday all things being equal.

“We have over 600 who had indicated interest. All things being equal, without any hitches, the plane will take off by 09:00 hours this Wednesday.

“The manifest for the first flight is ready, and we are working on the next flight,” he said.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Monday called for the immediate evacuation of Nigerians willing to return home from South Africa following the latest attacks on Nigerians and other African nationals.

Buhari gave the directive when he received a report of the special envoy to South Africa, the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Abubakar.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the chairman of Air Peace Mr Allen Onyema, had last week volunteered to send aircraft to evacuate Nigerians who wished to return home for free.

“Air Peace is willing to support the Nigerian Government’s efforts in this matter by deploying our B777 aircraft to evacuate Nigerians back home,” Onyema said.

Mr Oyema advised the returnees against making payment to anyone for their flights to Lagos.

Onyema urged the returning Nigerians to be wary of unauthorised persons, reportedly collecting $1,000 from them, adding that none of them should pay for the flights.

He said, his airline is particularly concerned about the safety of Nigerians in South Africans following the attacks.

“We have not designated or recruited any agent in South Africa to collect money on behalf of Air Peace.

“So, nobody should pay money to anyone or group of persons posing as Air Peace agent or staff.

“Any Nigerian who has paid money for repatriation to Nigeria with Air Peace should request for a refund and report to appropriate authorities,” he said.

The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had also pledged the Federal Government’s support to any Nigerian that wanted to return home.

Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa said this after a closed-door meeting with the Senate Committee on Diaspora and Non-Governmental Organisations in Abuja.

She said that the returnees would be encouraged to enroll and participate in the various social intervention programmes of the government.

“We will encourage them to enroll in small scale entrepreneurial programmes with the Bank of Industry under the social investment programme. So, there are things that they can do’’, she said.

God bless AirPeace for this kind gesture...may God bring them back home safely.

Federal government should try and much as possible tO create more job opportunities so that the returnees and the peOple that are in the country already can benefit from it.

My candid advice thoo

That will be a good step in the right direction.
These ones are surely ready to work and do something good with their lives.

Some rather die in a foreign country doing drugs and frauds and shouting 'I'm in the abroad' everywhere!

Welcome home guys.
Nigeria will be great again.

donogaga:
Nigeria won't be great again. At least, not now.
Hence, stop deceiving yourself.
Okay, you have just spoken for yourself and your fellow wailers.
So shall it be for you all, as you wish and pray.
Amen.

As for we that believe in Nigeria,
We shall eat the good fruits of the land.
Amen.

So in same Africa, a group of fellow African is been sent away for no crime other than inferiority complex.

What is the best response to someone who intimidates you with his wealth? Simply to work more hard rather than jealousy and inferiority complex.

South Africans are shameless.

The Asian nations have made good convictions of crime related offences of foreigners without seeking for their total expulsion of foreign citizens .

Mother Africa is in pains
