The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has given reasons why it is taking time in evacuating over 300 stranded Nigerians in the United Arab Emirates.

The Ministry said it was working with the Nigerian Mission alongside the UAE authorities to assist stranded Nigerians in the country for various reasons, ranging from overstay, lost passports, and lack of documentation especially in the case of infants, to pending cases with the Emirati police.

This was made known in a statement signed by the Ministry’s Spokesperson, Francisca Omayuli.

The FG explained that the processes of evacuating stranded Nigerians for various reasons had to be finalized by the relevant Emirati authorities before repatriation.
