President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and Minister of State, Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika to commence the process of repatriating Nigerians who travelled to Russia for the FIFA 2018 World Cup and got stranded after the competition.

The Nigerian football fans got stranded in the country following the activities of some unscrupulous travel agents who cancelled their return tickets and abandoned them to their fate.

According to a statement by the senior special assistant media to the president, Garba Shehu, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Aviation have in compliance with the President’s directive taken  the necessary actions to bring the Nigerians back.

He said the Presidential directive is in line with the policy of the current administration to ensure the welfare of all Nigerians in every part of the world.

It would be recalled that the President Buhari administration had on several occasions ensured the repatriation of Nigerians from foreign countries like Libya and other conflict zones.
