ILO pledges continued support for Labour Migrant Governance in Nigeria
Written by on July 6, 2022
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) says it will continue to support Nigeria in strengthening Labour Migration Governance in the country.
The ILO Country Director to Nigeria, Vanessa Phala, said this in an interview with the journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.
Phala said the ILO was collaborating with the Ministry of Labour and Employment and other social partners in improving Labour migration governance for the protection and promotion of rights of migrant workers.
She said that currently the ILO Global Estimates on International Migrant Workers had risen to 169 million that constituted nearly five per cent of the global labour market.
She added that migration was an increasingly important policy issue as economic hardship and geo-political crises were leading to lack of decent work, resulting to growing diverse migratory movements.
