FG issues serious warning to Nigerians travelling to Canada

The Federal Government has warned Nigerians travelling to Canada against leaving the country  without proper documentation.

Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, gave the charge when she visited some Nigerians in one of the shelters in Brampton, Canada.

Dabiri-Erewa has urged Nigerians travelling abroad to go legitimately and with proper documentation to avoid unpleasant consequences.

She urged others planning to travel without proper documentation, arrive in the country to seek asylum, to desist.

According to the NiDCOM boss, the situation is getting tougher in many countries with immigrants depending on food banks for their feeding need.

“Pastor Vivian Eruka, who runs the Bethel food bank and works with those in shelters, informed us that the Mayor of Brampton promised to make 800 more beds and shelters available,” she said.

“Wale Rabiu, owner of a bakery, donated hundreds of loaves of Agege bread to the shelter inmates, while Bayo Adedosu, a Nigerian living in Canada and an immigration consultant, also gave some words of counselling.”

Adedosu advised that they should not talk ill about their home country, Nigeria, to avoid future repercussions.

He equally urged them to be patient and law-abiding while in Canada.
