The Federal Government will today commence the evacuation of about 5,500 Nigerians, including students stranded in Khartoum and other cities in Sudan. To facilitate the repatriation, the government has released N150m  for hiring 40 buses to convey its desperate citizens from Sudan to Cairo in Egypt. The money was paid to an undisclosed transport company yesterday by the Central Bank of Nigeria through the National Emergency Management Agency. The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, confirmed on Tuesday that the payment had been made, noting that the evacuees would take off this morning.
