Speaking on the importance of the meeting, Comrade Ugboaja affirmed that fair migration will bring minimal poverty and inequality.

He said NLC shares in the vision of the ITUC-Africa to bring together its affiliates, Civil Society Organisations and other allies in the Africa Region and beyond to consider concrete means and ways to implement the 2022 – 2024 Action Plan developed and adopted in Dakar, Senegal, in December 2021.

The NLC scribe further expressed happiness the meeting seeks to devise ways and means to further the commitments made from the recently concluded first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) 2022.

“We commend this initiative and effort as it will contribute to the protection of human, workers and trade unions rights of migrant workers. It will also deepen trade union capacities on how to ensure better support for Migrant workers and members of their families that are still living with the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As NLC, we shall continue to support all actors, especially critical stakeholders in the world of work in their several positive and pragmatic initiatives deployed to assist migrants, migrant workers and members of their families and communities to cope with the effects of the global pandemic.

“We shall also continue to contribute to efforts to defeat fragilities and build resilience and stability to counter forced mobility.

“Comrades, we also want to appreciate this great move that emphasizes networking and would bring closely trade unions and CSOs on the continent and in Asia together.

The idea identifies and places a premium on collaboration and cooperation to advance better migration governance.

It is therefore proper to stake one’s bet believing that this process will lead to the development of actions for improving pro-rights migration and labour migration governance.

NLC has resolved to be committed to any effort and all activities that will promote better migration governance.

There is no better way to do this than to actively participate and collaborate, as well as strengthen the alliance between workers and the “other” stakeholders in the workplace and society in general in ways to continue to enrich the call for fair migration.

“We have affirmed that fair migration and responsive governance are some of the ways to tame hazards of migration, poverty and inequality. In essence, the pursuit of fair migration ensures that the migrants, their families, and business.

“We reassure you of our commitment, readiness and availability in the struggle for the defence of the collective interests of workers, our communities and the future of our countries and continent”.
