Nigerians Evacuated From Ukraine Arrive In Abuja

The Head, Media and Public Relations Unit, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abdur-Rahman Balogun, confirmed that the evacuees arrived on an Air Peace flight at 6:30pm on Friday from Warsaw, Poland.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar Farouq, was at the airport to receive the 181 evacuees.

The development comes hours after the first batch of 411 evacuees from Romania landed at the Abuja airport at 7:11 am on Friday via Max Air.

The stranded Nigerians were evacuated to Nigeria following the intervention of the Federal Government with the cooperation of governments of countries neighbouring Ukraine.

Gabriel Aduda, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the Federal Government has made all necessary arrangements to ensure that no Nigerian is left stranded in any of the countries where they have fled to.

Aduda said that Nigerian airlines – Air Peace and Air Max – would transport stranded Nigerians from Romania, Hungary, and Poland.

The Federal Government gave all returnees from Ukraine $100 (about N48,000) to ameliorate their sufferings.

KanyiDaily recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Wednesday approved $8.5 million for the immediate evacuation of 5,000 Nigerians stranded as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war.
