Lagos Gov Sanwo Olu Gifts South African Returnees N20k Each...

Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Wednesday gave N20,000 to each of the second batch of 315 Nigerians evacuated from South Africa.

The fresh batch of returnees arrived a week after another 187 Nigerians fleeing xenophobia came back from South Africa.

The joyous returnees arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 7.21p.m aboard an Air Peace B777 aircraft with registration number 5N-BWI.

The flight, which originated from the OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg was received by Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and Air Peace Chairman, Mr Allen Onyema.

Also on ground was Mr Jermaine Sanwo-Olu, Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos State Governor on Diaspora.

Presenting the token on behalf of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Mr Jermaine Sanwo-Olu said that the money was a palliative for the returnees.

Sanwo-Olu said that the returnees from Lagos State would be transferred to the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), where they would be trained on skill acquisition.

Dabiri-Erewa told newsmen that the returnees would be profiled according to their states and local governments of origin to complement the federal government’s effort in reintegrating them.

She said apart from giving the returnees stipends to get back to their respective states, there was also a medical team on ground to provide assistance to those with medical conditions.

Dabiri-Erewa also noted that the Nigeria High Commission was working with the South African authorities to reduce the unnecessary delays which had so far characterised the evacuation exercise.

  1. 20 k ? For chewing gum

  2. Sanwo Olu... long time oh. With his hunger, thought he will be making waves. Heard he is really quiet now. Weldone for the 20k 😏. How bout investments like getting then into jobs or something. These people left their live and everything else

    1. Read well Same girl

    2. I swear Anon, I ddnt read 😏. Was just suprise to see him after so long.
      Let me read now. Thanks

  3. This same man will never agree to 20k as feeding allowance for a day yet he wants someone to use that sum to build a life. This is why we’ll always be treated as trash out there. No value for us at home.

  4. 20k for what exactly? Well, it’s still better than the federal government that gave them 10k

  5. Lagos state government well done. I believe majority of the returnees are across the niger, but nothing yet from those governors.

  6. DJ Sanwolu u dey dash 20K..My little bird told me that Lagos State account balances are seriously empty and having serious financial issues...DJ Sanwolu please stop sharing money and start working abeg you..

  7. When they use the 20k as fair to their various states, hope they won't be forgotten? From all of these, other states need to help out too.

  8. every one is saying 20k is too small what about the Nigerians here in the country who get nothing to invest!! entitlement mentality is our problem!! nonsense! who told them to go to the useless country!

    1. Thank you. How many of us here have seen 20k from the government. Nobody prays for such evil though

  9. This is an absolute waste of money. They're plenty of people who live and make a living in Lagos that need the money that are more deserving of Lagos state funded handouts.

  10. They should have been given 10k each from other states. Stupid other state governments-at least he gave something.
