Must Read Ambode rescues Stranded Nigerians in Russia
Governor Ambode recues 50 stranded
Nigerians in Russia

The governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi
Ambode on Saturday, July 14, gave hope to
50 Nigerians who were helpless and
sleeping around in the streets of Russia
after their agents whom they paid over one
million naira (1,000,000) failed to provide
them jobs as promised.

Vanguard reports that some of them said
they used the official Fan IDs to come to
Russia with the assurance of finding work
or even playing professional football
themselves. gathered that others said they
came to watch World Cup matches but got
stranded when their return plane tickets
were cancelled by bogus travel agencies
that booked them.

A motivational speaker, Nnamdi Odimegwu,
via his Instagram page, said he was in the
company of the governor when he
extended the gesture.

He said: “I had a pick up arrangement today
at the airport in Moscow and had a rare
privilege of meeting his excellency, the
governor of Lagos state; the most populous
and commercial Hub of Nigeria.

“I quickly introduced myself while I waited
for my pick up arrangement to come out.
We had a small chat and exchanged
knowledge and wisdom while I waited. He
bade me farewell as his pick up
arrangement had arrived.

“After a few minutes, my pick up arrived as
well so we set out to the car park. As soon
as we came out of the airport, I saw a
crowd of over 50 Nigerians who had been
stranded at the airport for almost 10-15
days now. And in their middle was this
same man, His excellency, Governor

“As soon as he sighted me, he quickly called
my attention to assist. It was a pathetic
state and a lot of words both pleasant and
unpleasant were being exchanged. (Not
apportioning blames on anyone ) Then his
Excellency did something that amazed me.

“He showed solidarity and quickly pledged
to send all 50 Stranded Nigerians home and
assigned me to oversea the transfers and
procurement of new tickets to send them

“As I type this, 19 out of this 50 are already
on air to Lagos Nigeria, the remaining 31
are leaving this evening. His excellency also
fed them all as he gave them cash to eat
while they waited for their tickets to fly
“I am only writing this to express my
gratitude to a man that has shown that not
all politicians are the same.
“I am well aware that NFF Officials and
some other senior government or well to
do Nigerians are aware of the situation on
ground but are yet to be of help.
“Kindly help as much as you can. Nigeria will
only be built or destroyed by Nigerians. The
integrity of our Nation is at stake. Follow
this same example; If you have the well
