House Of Reps Dismiss Motion To Address Nigerians’ Migration

Nigerian youths predominantly choose countries like Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States

On Thursday, the motion to tackle the emigration of Nigerians to foreign countries in search of improved living conditions was rejected by the House of Representatives.

During the session, Victor Agbese, a member of the House, proposed that the Federal Government should declare the “Japa” (migration) syndrome a national emergency and organize a national summit to address the issue. However, the majority of lawmakers voted against it.

Due to Nigeria’s unemployment rate reaching a new all-time high of 33.3 percent, a significant wave of emigration, commonly known as the ‘Japa’ phenomenon, has been occurring for some time.

Nigerian youths predominantly choose countries like Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States as their preferred destinations for better educational opportunities, employment prospects, enhanced security, and other reasons.
