The Federal Government has unveiled plans to dissuade Nigerian youths from travelling abroad searching for a greener pasture outside the country. The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, said the Nigerian Government had commenced the process to strengthen internal security.
Aregbesola has reportedly set up a Task Force to fast-track the operationalization of the presidential deliverables to actualize the plan.
The deliverables include the ease of tourist visa requirements, review of the recruitment, deployment, and personnel training in the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps. Also included is the decongestion of the Nigerian Correctional Centres.
EveryEvery.ng gathered that the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of interior, Shuaib Belgore, had inaugurated the committee in collaboration with the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
Aregbesola, who decried the rate at which young people are renouncing their citizenship of Nigeria, directed the committee to work with the Citizenship and Business Department of the Ministry on the Expatriate Quota.
However, the Minister expressed optimism that the move will go a long way in dissuading Nigerian youths from looking for greener pastures outside the country’s shores.
