CHEVENING 2021 Essay Competition for Nigerian Undergraduate

TOPIC: Alternative Narratives to illegal Migration Amongst Young People in Nigeria

The essay seeks to stimulate thoughts on illegal migration, especially amongst young people, towards preventing the occurrence, and for providing options to breaches of immigration regulations. 

The options should not only help stop the risks that it exposes perpetrators to, but should offer alternative ideas on earning a living, aside from the belief that the option can only be elsewhere. It seeks to challenge the youths on creating and harnessing opportunities in the local environment, and to envision migration from the legal path, if desired.

The focus of the essay is on emphasizing the risks of illegal migration by deepening knowledge on other possibilities.
