Nigeria records high voluntary repartees from Switzerland


 Nigeria has recorded a high number of voluntary repartees from Switzerland following the migration partnership agreement between both countries.

Fidelia Njeze, the Nigerian ambassador to Switzerland, made this known on Monday in Bern in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Njeze said more than 70 percent of illegal immigrants have accepted “on their own” to return to Nigeria in line with incentives provided within the framework of the migration partnership.

Under the partnership signed in 2011, voluntary repartees are given return assistance to the tune of 7,000 Swiss Franc, an equivalent of $8,000 U.S..
