The Nigerian Ambassador to Poland, Christian Ugwu, has told parents of Nigerian students who refused to board a flight that conveyed the 415 evacuees to Nigeria that, “they will be remaining at their own risk”.
Nigerians evacuees have only a 15-day visa in Poland, which the ambassador had made clear to the evacuees on arrival. The envoy, who warned the parents in an interview with journalists at the Polish Airport, said the parents should counsel their wards and children to come back.
“When the cr!sis in Ukraine subsides, they will be back to the country,” he said.
He explained that the embassy has been trying its best to convince the Nigerian students of the need for them to get back to Nigeria, than remaining in Poland to constitute a nuisance. He said: “Remaining in Poland will be a difficult thing for them because we know what is obtainable in this place.
So please, they should tell their children to come home, seeing that the federal government has made available flights for them to come home.”
