12,000 NIGERIA ASYLUM SEEKERS IN DEUTSCHLAND RISKS DEPORTATION
There are about 12,000 Nigerian asylum seekers in Deutschland as was informed by the global head of Programme Migration and Development, Dr Ralph Sanftenberg. He made the statement when he visited the Special Assistance to the President on foreign affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Eriwa. Those asylum seekers will likely to face deportation in 2018 as their reasons for asylum in Deutschland where denied. Sanftenberg further stated that there are about 37,000 Nigerians living in Deutschland of which more than 12,000 are asylum seekers with little or chance for their asylum to be granted.
Debiri-Erewa advise all the Nigerians facing deportation in Deutschland to willing come back home and benefit from the opportunity provided by German Government to assist them.
After leaving your home country and traveled thousands of kilometers by air or risk the Sahara and cross the Mediterranean Sea by road to come to Europe and After spending some years trying to settle down, but unfortunately must face a deportation by the host country. Its feels so sad knowing that you are going back from where you risk everything to leave. Thinking about home and current economic recession will make the situation even worse for those people to go back home. it creates a big psychological and traumatic effects on those deportees. I throw these questions to all Nigeria in diaspora to answer. Does these situation means anything to Nigerians living in Diaspora? How does it affect us? how does it concerns us?
