Promoting Better Management of Migration in Nigeria

As part of promoting migration governance, IOM Nigeria works closely with the Federal Government of Nigeria in providing services based on a whole-of-government approach to migration management. IOM works on Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration, labour migration and diaspora policy formulation, migration health and migrant assistance and protection. IOM Nigeria’s programmes support the organization’s global mission and the Nigerian government in managing the challenges of migration and welcoming the benefits. IOM provides tools, such as data collection systems, and trains officials to improve border management in Nigeria in keeping with ECOWAS’ commitment to migrants’ rights and the free movement of citizens in the region.
