THE Governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has called for support to reintegrate victims of human trafficking into society.
The governor made the call in Rome, Italy at the International Conference on Women Empowerment and the Fight against Trafficking in Persons: Partnership Between Nigeria and Italy, organised by the President of Italian Chamber of Deputies, Ms Laura Boldrini
He said: “We are spending a lot to reintegrate these young people into the society and we anticipate that the expenses would be more in the nearest future.
“We solicit for support from the European Union, the Italian government, as well as other countries affected by this menace to be able to sustain the structures we have set up in the state. 

“All parties affected by the menace of human trafficking both the countries of origin and the destination countries stand to benefit from the system we have set up in Edo State to engage these youths, which would give them no reason to contemplate migrating illegally.
“So, we want to strengthen these structures in Edo State to make staying back and working gainfully the preferred choice,” he added.
On the indigenes of the state who are stranded in Libya and other North African countries, the governor said plans are already in place by the state government to facilitate their return having first received as many as  200 returnees.
Back home , he said, the first batch of returnees have been enrolled in capacity development programmes and placed on a stipend for three months.


“We acknowledge the fact that they are victims, and in many instances, they are entangled in human trafficking due to no fault of theirs. We are extending an open hand to them, and assuring them of support when they return,” the governor pledged.
