Nigerians are very industrious people and because of the challenges we are facing as a country and our quest for greener pasture, many Nigerians are trooping out to other developed countries in search of a better life.
United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have witnessed a high influx of Nigerians into their countries in the last few years, same as some other middle East countries like Oman, Qatar, Lebanon and many others.
For different reasons, some Nigerians ended up being stranded in Saudi Arabia and the federal government of Nigeria in collaboration with the Saudi Arabia Goverment is returning them back to Nigeria.

About 395 Nigerians were returned and they arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe international airport Abuja yesterday. After their arrival, the Chairman, Nigerians in diaspora commission Abike Dabiri-Erewa, posted on her verified twitter account that "As more Nigerians are evacuated from Saudi Arabia. We keep appealing for Nigerians to avoid irregular migration".
From her tweet, it's understandable that some of the people that are stranded are in that situation because of irregular migration. And some of them refused to come back after their visa has expired.
Why do you think people are always sacred of returning to Nigeria when things didn't work out abroad?
