The Austrian politician, Michael Spindelegger has said that 1000 Nigerians currently in Austria would be deported soon. He has recently given the hint at the meeting with Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.

Michael Spindelegger opined that the repatriation of 1000 Nigerians was being put on hold for now to enable Austrian firms set up in the country and provide gainful employment for those to be repatriated, as reported by Vanguard Nigeria.

According to the 59-year old Austrian politician, the proposed programme would facilitate reversed migration of the irregular migrants, who had no likelihood of being given legal residence in Austria. "It is a new idea of how to combine future investment in Nigeria with the return of irregular migrants. A lot of companies are interested in investing in Nigeria because of its market. The idea is to train these irregular migrants before repatriating them so that when they come back, they will have something to do, instead of becoming liabilities," the Minister said.

He further said that the idea is to encourage more Austrian firms to come and pump out investments in Nigeria, which could contribute in solving the problem of unemployment and irregular migration.

"The Nigerians are in that country illegally, and do not have any prospect of regularizing their stay. As such, they would be deported in any case. So, instead of being deported with the shame that comes with it, they would be given training and guaranteed employment with the companies that would be coming to invest in Nigeria," Geoffrey Onyeama said.
