The Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has urged Nigerian asylum seekers to leave legitimately and with proper documentation to avoid “unpleasant consequences”.

She stated this in light of a growing number of Nigerians migrating out of the country, a phenomenon locally referred to as japa.

According to a statement by the commission’s Director of Media, Public Relations and Protocols Unit, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, on Thursday, Dabiri-Erewa gave the warning when she visited some Nigerians at a shelter in Brampton, Canada.

Expressing sympathy for their condition, the NIDCOM boss urged others without proper documentation who are seeking asylum to desist, saying the situation is getting tougher in many countries.

“It is just not worth it, more often than not,” she added.

Pastor Vivian Eruka , who runs the Bethel food bank and works with those in Shelters , informed that the Mayor of Brampton promised to make 800 more beds available and shelter.

Mr Wale Rabiu , owner of Matlock bakery donated hundreds loaves of Agege bread to the shelter inmates, while Mr Bayo Adedosu, a Nigerian living in Canada, and an immigration consultant also gave some words of counseling, adding that they should not talk ill about their home country, Nigeria, to avoid future repercussions.
