Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a Nigerian Twitter user who is living in Canada with the handle @ChuksJaphet has revealed that the Canadian government gave them c$2,290 (N626,406.62) each.

He said that they were first given a deposit of c$2000 (N547,080.02) before they were on Monday, April 19, given another c$290 (N79,326.60).

@ChuksJaphets berated the Nigerian government for asking them to come back home and telling them that they would be paying for their flight cost.

The Nigerian Twitter user, therefore, added that home is not where one is born but where the political leaders have your interest at heart.
