FG to give Ukraine returnees $100 each


Nigerian returnees from Ukraine will each receive $100 upon their arrival in Abuja.

The first batch of the returnees arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Friday morning.

Many Nigerians have fled to neighbouring countries like Poland, Romania and Hungary.

The Nigerian Government on Wednesday announced that it had approved $8.5 million for the evacuation of citizens.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Zubairu Dada, said stranded Nigerians would be airlifted from Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania.

Two flights from Air Peace and one from Max Air will evacuate the Nigerians.
