Driving The News.
As the sad development in Ukraine continues to unravel, about 12 countries of the world have pulled their nationals from Ukraine. Nigerians in the country are majorly students studying medicine or engineering related courses. The National Association of Nigerian Students in Ukraine yesterday sent out a SOS to President Muhammadu Buhari of the urgency of the matter.
In the letter, Acting-President of the National Association of Nigerian Students in Ukraine, Eunice Eleaka, pleaded with the President to prioritize their demands as time is of the essence. Eleaka, who narrowly escaped the war, said in an interview that most people are stuck in Ukraine because of the unbelievable cost of flight tickets.
