Message from the Executive Governor of Edo State

The world is again confronted with the menace of modern slavery centuries after the abolition of Trans-Atlantic slave-trade. Today, people are still being trafficked and kept in slavery. Many also risk their lives crossing the Mediterranean sea and the Sahara desert in search of a better life in Europe. It is global knowledge that Nigeria is a major source country for human trafficking and irregular migration but it is more alarming that 60% of the challenge originates from Edo State. This is a fact that is both worrisome for Nigeria as a country and Edo State, at a sub-national level.
