The Pan African Institute for Global Affairs and Strategy is partnering with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Kaduna to end illegal migration of Nigerians.
The President of the Institute, Dr. Martins Uhomoibhi said during a visit to the NYSC Orientation Camp in Kaduna on Tuesday that the partnership seeks to sensitise NYSC members on the dangers of human trafficking and illegal migration.
While he expressed concern over the rate at which Nigerian youths risk their lives travelling abroad illegally in the name of seeking for greener pasture.
He said 68 percent of the over 9,000 people that died in 2017 through illegal migration were graduates.
He however stressed that the aim of the partnership was to launch the NYSC vanguard against the ugly trend as well as get volunteers among corps members that will take the message to all the local government areas of the state.
"Illegal migration signifies lack of self-esteem and is responsible for many untimely deaths in the desert and the Mediterranean Sea in desperate bids for jobs overseas. No one is against anybody travelling abroad but we are encouraging Nigerians to travel through the right channel by going to the embassy to get a visa,"
“Do not allow anyone deceive you by collecting your money and make you travel through the desert in search of greener pasture. When you travel illegally, you will be dehumanised and exploited,’’ he said.
Responding, the Kaduna State Co-ordinator of NYSC, Alhaji Dahunsi Muhammed described the partnership as timely while he appealed to the corps members to take the campaign of illegal migration to the nooks and crannies of the state.
