Germany has proposed a new process that will facilitate the smooth repatriation of over 30,000 illegal Nigerian migrants back to the country.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama said this when he received the Security Adviser to the President of Germany, Dr Jan Hecker, and his team in Abuja.
According to Onyeama, the new proposal is predicated on perceived failures and slow pace of the current system of repatriation. This, he said, involved both the participation of Nigerian embassies and consulate and the German immigration office.
He added, “They don’t have enough faith and confidence in the process that we have at the moment for the repatriation process.
”Some of the delays they believed are with the mission and consulate in Germany.
