UK Government In Talks With Nigeria To Receive Migrants Rejected For Asylum In The UK

Nigeria is among five more African countries reportedly in ‘advanced talks with the UK government over a Rwanda-style deal.

It was gathered that the  UK-Rwanda deal seeks to remove illegal immigrants from the UK for processing their asylum claims out of Europe.

According to the reports,  Morocco, Nigeria, Namibia, Niger, and Ghana are all in discussions with the UK government about receiving migrants rejected for asylum from the UK.

This comes after 25 boats were intercepted by Border Force and the Royal Navy on Monday and escorted into Dover and Dungeness in the morning before hundreds more people were brought ashore into the evening amid a large number of migrants crossing the Channel to the UK.

On Wednesday, August 23 2022  as many as 1,000 people may have arrived, after three days without crossings.The highest ever total in a month is 6,878 in November. And yesterday the yearly total reached 21,000. The total did not pass 20,000 until November 2021.

It was also disclosed that the Foreign Office has been taking up the task of establishing a list of countries interested in agreeing on a Rwanda-style deal.

An initial list of 20 countries was quickly reduced when ambassadors warned that seeking such agreements would damage relations.

Albania, North Macedonia, and Moldova were on the initial list but were removed following the negative media coverage.
