I am against any of my country men and women who illegally find their way to other countries — President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said he was against his country men and women finding their way to other countries illegally in search of better conditions of life, adding that he would never support indiscipline and illegality.

Buhari said this on Friday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja during a joint press briefing between him and the visiting German Chancellor H. E Angela Merkel.

According to him, “I am against any of my country men and women who illegally find their way to other countries other than Nigeria, l hope you know that ECOWAS protocol includes free movements of persons and goods and services.

“But for those going to Europe, this administration does not support that Nigerians should defy the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean because they feel there are greener pastures there. We do not support anything illegal and indiscipline.”

The President reminded Nigerians to learn from the recent repatriation of about 3,000 Nigerians that were stuck in Libya on their way to Europe, and also Nigerians who lost in the Mediterranean. He therefore declared that if any Nigeria is found stuck in Libya or anywhere, Nigeria will bring him back home and send him to his local government.

“So, for us, this administration is very clear that we do not support anything illegal and anybody who feels that his country does not offer him what he should be offered and decides to defy the Mediterranean is doing so at his own risk. But if found stuck in Libya or anywhere, Nigeria will bring him back home and send him to his local government.”, Buhari said.
