The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, on Sunday in Port Harcourt said that the Federal Government would rehabilitate and empower 490 Nigerians evacuated from Libya.


Onyeama gave the assurance on the arrival of the returnees at Port Harcourt Airport in Rivers, where a reception centre has been set up to receive and profile the returnees  before being transported to their various states of origin.

 The returnees are the first batch of an estimated 5037 Nigerians to be ferried home by two indigenous airlines, Max Air.
Onyeama had led a fact finding team to Libya to negotiate with the government to get the stranded Nigerians home.
