Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the federal government through the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) disclosed that another 400 Nigerians in South Africa had indicated interest in returning home.
The commission’s spokesman, Abdulrahman Balogun, made this disclosure when he led 32 Nigerian returnees of Oyo state origin to the state governor’s office, Ibadan, on Wednesday, October 2.
He, however, noted that the decision of those Nigerians to return home or stay back may be influenced by the outcome of the scheduled meeting between the Nigerian government and the South African authorities.
