The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Friday, directed its missions abroad to compile lists of nationals who requested to return to Nigeria.

The Chairman/CEO of the Nigeria in the Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement by the commission’s Head, Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, in Abuja, said the interested Nigerians were advised to inform the missions in the various countries who will then collate and coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

She, however, said the ministry had instructed that the financial implications would be borne by the prospective evacuees, who will be compulsorily quarantined when they returned.

The NIDCOM chairman urged Nigerians stranded abroad willing to return home to key into this federal government gesture by providing their information to the mission in their respective host countries.

She said embassies in several countries were on lockdown hence those interested could go online and fill forms provided on the commission’s website: Form101 – Nigerians in Diaspora Commission.

NAN reports that other platforms to be reached are: *Emails* [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and  *Twitter handle* @nidcom_gov.

 She also urged them to also use the *website* www.nidcom_gov.ng.
