Ireland Lauds Obaseki’s Reintegration Plan for Libya Returnees, Offers Training Package

Impressed by Edo State Government’s holistic plan for receiving and reintegrating Libya returnees, Ambassador of Ireland to Nigeria, Sean Hoy, has expressed his country’s readiness to collaborate with Edo in training the returnees on technical and vocational skills to become self-reliant and employers of labour. 

Hoy disclosed this when he led a delegation of Irish diplomats on a courtesy visit to Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, in Benin City.


"Providing the youths with means through which they can acquire skills is a significant step in curbing illegal migration, modern-day slavery and human trafficking. 

"We have identified ways we can assist the state in training these youths. We are in talks with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) on the training of returnees. We want the returnees in Edo State to benefit from the programme.
 
"It is important for us to show love and empathy to the returnees and assist them to acquire skills which will provide them with opportunities to seek gainful employment,” Hoy said. 

In his response, Obaseki thanked Ireland for offering to support the state government in empowering Edo youths.
