In response to calls on development partners for a joint effort at tackling the illegal migration crisis in Edo State, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has unveiled a capacity development programme called “Managing Migration for Development” to be launched in a month’s time.
UNDP Country Director, Samuel Bwalya, said the objective of the programme was to help deal with the current challenge of human trafficking and illegal migration by empowering Edo people with skills and trainings.
Bwalya, who led a session at the Edo Exco Retreat in Abuja, said the UNDP programme was the product of a series of engagements by the Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki, with the UNDP on ways to bring to an end human trafficking and illegal migration in the state.
Also at the event, the Head of Service (HoS) of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, and representative of the Department for International Development (DFID) led sessions at the ongoing executive council retreat organised by the Obaseki administration.
The presence of Mrs Oyo-Ita is part of ongoing strategies to tap from her wealth of experience in fast-tracking reforms in the state.
Besides, the state government is in partnership with the UNDP to train civil servants at a purpose-built facility at Government House, Benin City. “
Present at the retreat was the Country Director, UNDP, Samuel Bwalya, while Dr. Nguyan Feese of DfiD also made a presentation.
