Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama says only documented Nigerian nationals living in Ukraine will be evacuated as the Federal Government concludes arrangements for the first batch of evacuation.
Onyeama disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement signed by the Spokesperson of the ministry, Mrs Francisca Omayuli and made available to Ikengaonline in Enugu.
The minister said that the affected evacuees would return home via Romania, Poland and Hungary.
He, therefore, appealed to those willing to return home to get documented with the Nigerian Embassies in order to be eligible for evacuation.
Onyeama said that those without passports would be issued Emergency Travel Certificates to enable them travel back home.
The statement read in part:
“The Federal Government of Nigeria wishes to inform that arrangements are being concluded for the evacuation of the first batch of Nigerian nationals willing to return home.
“Intending evacuees should note that only persons documented with the Nigerian Embassies will be eligible for evacuation.”
