The embassy of Nigeria in Ukraine on Thursday urged Nigerian Nationals to remain calm, vigilant and be responsible for their personal security and safety.
Tise was contained in a statement titled ‘New Travel Advice by the Embassy of Nigeria, Ukraine’ and signed by the Nigeria Embassy.
According to the statement, the embassy said “It’s attention has been drawn to a declaration of state of emergency, and marital law on the entire territory of Ukraine, except the Donetsk and Luhansk regions by the government of Ukraine, effective from midnight February 23, 2022 for a period of 30 days as well as the latest development on the Ukraine-Russia crisis.
“Should any Nigeria Nationals wish to temporarily relocate to anywhere considered safe by private arrangements, they should however ensure they do all the needful to validate all the resident documents for ease return to the country when desired.
“In addition, in case of students seeking such temporary relocation, they are enjoined to seek proper clearance and guarantee from their respective institutions, authorities/agents or the way forward in respect to their studies during this period and/or thereafter.
“For those who still consider it appropriate to remain in the country, be assured that the embassy remains open for its consular duties and responsibilities at all time. It will always avail you of updates when necessary.”
