Stop Migrating To The US And Canada, NIS Warns Nigerians

Isah Jere; the comptroller-general of NIS, issued the warning on Thursday at a news conference in Abuja.

The NIS spokesman Tony Akuneme spoke on behalf of Mr. Jere, who stated that the immigration department was committed to educating Nigerians about the risks associated with unauthorized migration.

Many Nigerians are willing to leave the nation but are unsure of what to do or where to go, according to the comptroller-general.

“People are being brainwashed by agents of irregular migration, and you think life is better on the other side,” he said. “Who says there are no beggars in Canada, the USA, or the UK? There are beggars and homeless people in these countries you are rushing to.”

“If the young people are told that the Libya they are going to is not better than Nigeria, that will at least give them a rethink,” he added. “You can’t be excited going to a country you know nothing about.”

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
