The minister of interior, Comrade Abba Moro has re-assured victims of the Immigration recruitment that the Federal Government would fulfill her promise to the victims.

Moro in a statement signed on Friday, July 18, 2014 by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. George Udoh,  revealed that the  Presidential  Committee had almost completed its assignment and the board of Civil Defence , Immigration and Prisons would not hesitate  to  implement the President’s  directives on the  palliatives  for the families of the victims at the end of the Presidential Committee’s  assignment.

The minister also explained that the apparent delay in not implementing the directives up to this moment was  the need to exercise due diligence  and  to ensure that the due process was not abused  and genuine claimants were not omitted  in the recruitment exercise.

He further disclosed that “since the Presidential pronouncement, the ministry, the Presidential committee, the NIS and even the ministry of justice have been inundated with very many claims some of which are certainly not true”. Consequently, the Minister  urged Nigerians, “particularly families of those who were affected in the  failed  Immigration recruitment exercise   for further patience and understanding so as  not to be  stampede into making avoidable mistakes.”
