President Buhari also said yesterday that the anti-corruption campaign of his administration and the economic programme of diversification will significantly address the lack of job opportunities and deprivation that make Nigerian youths vulnerable to recruitment by human traffickers.
He spoke at a meeting on Modern Slavery, hosted by British Prime Minister Theresa May on the margins of the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA71).
He commended the British Prime Minister for drawing the attention of the international community to such a serious matter to coincide with a time that the global focus is on migration and refugee crisis.
He called for practical and innovative measures to address all modern day human tragedies.
