My name is Elizabeth. I returned to Nigeria at the end of 2019 after not being granted asylum in Germany.
Life was difficult for me when I came back to Lagos. I didn’t have any money or anywhere to live and was moving between addresses for several weeks. I also had debts to repay. For a while, I lived in emergency accommodation provided by a church. A friend then told me about the Nigerian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (NGC) and the help that they give to returnees. The NGC gave me a very warm welcome. The team even helped me to find somewhere close to the centre to live for a while.
