The National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) has partnered with the Embassy of Netherlands on resolving migration issues in Nigeria.

Its Federal Commissioner, Senator Basheer Garba, said this in Abuja while receiving the ambassador of the Kingdom of Netherland, Harry Van Dijk.

Garba said the commission had increased advocacy for sensitization of migrants against illegal migration.

“As the agency leading in all aspects of the Federal Government’s  migration coordination our goal has been to steadfastly advocate for safe and orderly migration that will ensure more lives saved and not lost.

“This year, we’ve streamlined resources to primarily focus on the protection of persons of concern, including migrants, and we’ve ramped up sensitization of Nigerians that’ll promote regular migration within the country.

“To this end and by the middle of this year, we intend to launch the Resettlement City Rehabilitation and Reintegration Project in 4 states across the country (Borno, Kano, Katsina and Edo States)”, he stressed.

“Intentionally, the Edo State facility was selected for use as a transitional migrant Centre for rehabilitation and reintegration of migrants who have returned from abroad and need support before going back to their former homes”, he said.

Responding, Dijk said: “We’re happy to be here and we’ll do everything to support the commission in every way possible as we hope to boost bilateral dialogue on migration and investment and trade.”
