IOM, Govt partner to address migration issues

17 February 2016, 20:12

Abuja - Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has urged the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to complement government efforts to address irregular migration.

He described the problem as one of the biggest challenges for the government.

“Irregular migration is one of the worst problems because some of these migrants have skills and vocations that can actually put them on the part of regular migration, but because of the absence of information and knowledge they veer off and undertake the part of irregular migration which has caused them a lot of hazard,” said Ngige.

Ngige spoke as he received Chief of Mission, International Organisation for Migration, Enira Krdzalic, who paid him a courtesy visit in his Abuja offices.

Krdzalic meanwhile said her organisation was partnering with the Ministry of Labour and Employment to promote gainful employment opportunity as government alone cannot generate all the needed jobs.

She added that IOM has assisted the ministry in upgrading the National Electronic Labour Exchange portal (NELEX), including establishment of six job centres.

These are located in Abuja Asaba, Awka, Bauchi, Kaduna and Lagos. There are also Migrant Resource Centres for easy dissemination of information to intending migrants.
