Chairman of the Nigeria Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has warned Nigerians not to travel to Northern Cyprus. The advice was given in Abuja on Thursday at the State House.
Dabiri-Erewa said that there is little the Federal Government can do to diplomatically resolve issues in the territory because Northern Cyprus is not recognised by the international community except Turkey.
The warning comes amid reports many Nigerian are being killed in Northern Cyprus.
Dabiri-Erewa also urged Nigerians in Diaspora not to be afraid to invest in Nigeria because of insecurity.
While admitting that the country’s insecurity challenge is a source of concern, she said it is only temporary because of stiff measures currently employed by the Federal Government to tackle the situation.
She said the commission recorded over $20 billion in daispora remittances for 2021.
