President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that Nigerians migrating to Europe are doing so at their own risk as his administration will not support illegal migration.
Buhari stated this during a joint press conference with the visiting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja on Friday.
He said, “I’m against those my countrymen and women that illegally find their way to other countries.
“We do not, as an administration agree for Nigerians to defy the desert and the Mediterranean because they feel that there are greener pastures over there. We do not support anything illegal and indiscipline.
“We do not support anything illegal and anybody who feels that his country does not value him or offer him what he should be offered as a citizen and decide to defy the desert and the Mediterranean is doing it at his own risk.”
