Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, says Nigeria is committed to the integration of the African continent and the promotion of trade, movement of persons, goods and services, and infrastructural development.
Keyamo stated this in Abuja, when he received a delegation of the African Union, (AU), Labour Migration Advisory Committee, led by Dr Alves D’Almada.
The minister, who said Nigeria would always be in support of African integration, but not at the detriment of the laws of individual sovereign States in the continent, pledged the country’s readiness to assist in legislation and policy to support the committee in promoting African integration.
The leader of the delegation, Dr Alves D’Almada, said the visit was to explore ways of collaboration between the committee and Nigeria’s government to further promote African integration,
listing areas of collaboration to include job creation, managing migration issues, promoting free movement of goods and services, and addressing the issue of visa-on-arrival in the continent.
