    Nigeria’s Only Viable Way Out of Sudan War Is Evacuation by Road – Federal Govt

    Federal Govt Speaks Up Amidst Sudan War Crisis

    The federal government of Nigeria has declared that the only safe and reliable way to evacuate Nigerian citizens from the current crisis in Sudan is through road transportation. This was announced on Wednesday night, March 24th, 2021, by the Federal Government officials, in Abuja.

    According to the Government officials, air evacuation had to be ruled out due to the high cost and physical insecurity of landing in the region. They also pointed out that safe water transportation was not feasible, considering the high security risk and the logistics involved.

    Nigeria’s Critical Situation in Sudan War

    The situation in Sudan is critical for Nigerian citizens living there. The Sudanese Government had last week declared a state of emergency due to the growing number of Rebel attacks and killings in the region. The death toll continues to rise sharply, causing a lot of concern for the safety of Nigerian citizens currently in the area.

    To make the situation worse, many Nigerians have been caught up in the warzone and are struggling to evacuate the country. The Nigerian government has been working tirelessly with the international community to bring an end to the conflict and to secure the safe evacuation of all citizens trapped in the region.

    Risks Associated with Possible Evacuation Methods

    Transportation out of Sudan is no small feat. The lack of infrastructure and the high cost of air travel has ruled out air transportation as a viable option. Even if it were affordable, the security situation makes it nearly impossible to guarantee the safety of all citizens in transit.

    Water transportation is also not a feasible option since it makes citizens more vulnerable on board. A water journey involves specific protocols and could expose travelers to extreme weather, piracy, and other security risks that endanger Nigeria’s citizens’ safety.

    Why Road Transportation Remains the Only Viable Option

    Despite these risks, the Federal Government of Nigeria has determined that the safest and most reliable way for Nigerians to evacuate Sudan is by road. This decision was based on several factors, including the status of land borders, the demand for road travel, and the need for a speedy evacuation operation. Besides, road transport is much more affordable than any other evacuation option and the government can quickly coordinate the process accordingly.

    Furthermore, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has stated that they have already begun making preparations for the evacuation of Nigerian citizens from Sudan. They have deployed the needed personnel and resources towards the process.

    Conclusion

    It is important to note that the security situation remains a significant challenge towards the safe evacuation of Nigerians currently trapped in Sudan. And as such, the government of Nigeria has called on all citizens in Sudan to stay safe, and ensure they follow all necessary protocols until evacuation is carried out.

    The Nigerian government has emphasized that it is also working with the United Nations and African Union to help reach a peaceful resolution to the conflict, to efficiently evacuate Nigerians in the region out of the conflict area.
