Following the crisis rocking Sudan, the Federal Government has assured that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) will commence the airlifting of Nigerian evacuees from Egypt today.
The government also said the incidents of bus drivers stopping in the desert due to non-payment have been resolved while plans are on gear to airlift all Nigerians that have already escaped on their own to safety in other countries neighbouring Sudan.
“The Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Peace and other Airlines have received clearance to fly to Egypt. The NAF C-130H is scheduled to leave Abuja today to commence the airlifting of the evacuees,” said Ambassador Janet Olisa of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
