According to the Acting Nigerian High Commissioner in London, Mr Olukunle Bamgbose, the migration policy came on the heels of a migration crisis created by the troubled regions in the world.
He made this known in his office when he spoke with State House Correspondents covering Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s visit to London.
“I think about 29,000 Nigerians have been designated to be deported.”
“We are insisting that due process must be followed before Nigerians are really removed from the UK to Nigeria,’’ he said.
Bamgbose further gave four conditions that should be met by the UK immigration office before the commission could accept the migration and deportation agenda.
– First, we must ensure that they are really Nigerians
– They are medically fit to travel
– All the legal processes must have been completed
– They have role to play in Nigeria
“You do not expect someone who has not been to Nigeria for 30 years to 40 years, and does not have any family and you want to deport him.
“He will constitute social problems to us in Nigeria; so these are the sore points at this moment that we have,’’ the envoy said.
