Nigeria, E.U to strengthen dialogue on migration and other interests


The Nigerian Government and the European Union (EU) have resumed negotiations on the Nigeria EU Readmission Agreement as part of its dialogue and broad engagement.

The negotiation which was stalled by the COVID-19 pandemic seeks to ensure that Nigerians travelling to the EU take only legal routes while Nigeria readily readmits her deported citizens.

The EU Ambassador to Nigeria and Head of the EU delegation to West Africa, Samuela Isopi said the negotiation became necessary so as to broaden partnership and engagement with Nigeria on migration and mobility.

On his part, the Nigerian Ambassador to Belgium, Obinna Onowu who said, issues bordering on migration, mobility and other priority areas will be discussed at the 2-day meeting, pointed out that the partnership dwelling on access to legal migration will be of mutual benefit to both parties.
