The commissioner said that the state government had put necessary measures in place for their reintegration into the society. She said,
“I welcome our ladies back to the state of Omoluabi. You are safe in the state, and the government will do all that it can to ensure that you have a good life going forward.
There is no harm in trying. The fact that you went abroad to hustle does not mean that you should be stigmatised.
We as government are very proud of you for taking a bold step and trying something new.
You have had the experience first hand, and you are going to be the state’s ambassadors on issues of trafficking.
The state government expects you to put in diligence in serving your motherland. You have seen the other side of life, and of course, you can see that there is no greener pasture anywhere, but home.
We want to know your qualifications to know how the government can assist you.
Besides, we have organised an Empowerment Programme for you, and your resource persons are on ground to take you through the training."OMOKOSHABAN
