Nigeria Among The Top Five Migrant Countries To EU


According to reports from European Commission, three million migrants who are fleeing war and poverty are expected to enter the EU by 2017, a development likely to have a marginal positive impact on the economy of the continent.
Nigeria has been listed among the top five migrant countries to Europe. The most populous black nation in the world is only behind Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Eritrea.
Most of the migrants from these countries are fleeing the war in their countries but the story of Eritrea who accounts for five per cent and that of Nigeria which is three per cent can be put down to poverty.
Syria accounts for 53 per cent of the migrants and is followed by Afghanistan with 18 per cent while Iraq who is placed third accounts for six per cent, Nigeria however accounts for 3 percents.
