Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari has commended diplomats in the country for their efforts to facilitate the safe return of Nigerians based in Ukraine.

 

Recalled that the First Lady had urged the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to treat the evacuation of Nigerians from Ukraine as a matter of urgency.

She had written earlier;

“In view of the state of heightened insecurity in Ukraine, I commend the directives of federal government and the House of Representatives for the evacuation of our more than 5600 students trapped in the conflict.

“The Minister of Foreign Affairs should treat this matter as an emergency, while our citizens should stay calm, comply with safety procedures and avoid self-help in order to avoid the mischief of human traffickers.
I stand with all Nigerian parents in praying for global peace and human solidarity.”

“I  am pleased to learn of efforts by our diplomats to facilitate the safe return of our teeming citizens from Ukraine.
