The meeting was also attended by the Director-General, National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking of Persons (NAPTIP), Julie Okah-Donli.

The president had through his Media Aide, Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement issued earlier on Wednesday, vowed to reduce the number of Nigerians heading for Europe illegally through the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea.

According to the president, this will be done by providing basic social amenities such as education, healthcare, food and security at home.
