Over 600 Evacuees In Lagos And Abuja, We Are Reaching Saturation Point – Onyeama
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama says Nigeria is reaching a saturation with regards to the process of evacuating its citizens from across the world.
Mr Onyeama who disclosed this on Monday at the Presidential Task Force Briefing on COVID-19, noted that the evacuation of Nigerians from Dubai, UK and New York, has been successful.
He, however, stressed that a lot went wrong with logistics in the case of passengers who were transported to Abuja, stressing that better arrangement will be made to prevent any future recurrence.
While revealing that over 600 evacuees are now in Lagos and Abuja, the Minister said the process is reaching a saturation point, adding that the ministry will now stagger the process a bit, as to allow some space before bringing more citizens into the country.
Mr Onyeama stated that there are still so many Nigerians outside still needing evacuation, assuring that more will be brought in when those on ground have been better sorted.
