The Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mallam Abubakar Malami, SAN, has advised Nigerians to remain in the country because there’s no greener pasture elsewhere.
He made this known when the Coalition of Integrity Political Parties (CIPP) paid him a visit in his office.
Speaking on xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Malami advised that the Immigration service should be overhauled and that people seeking to migrate should be profiled to checkmate illegal migration.
He also decried the habit of going through the Mediterranean Sea in order to migrate to foreign countries as illegal.
His words: “This is very important because by now, we should have been able to know who and who are in South Africa to defend the helpless and hapless Nigerians.
There is no greener pasture anywhere than in our country. With farmlands everywhere, we must work harder rather than look for cheap means to migrate from the country when nobody is chasing us.
This is one of the problems I see when our people travel abroad illegally, which is now posing a challenge; if they were to be here, we would have been able to account for their whereabouts,” he noted.
