Sensitization on the ills of irregular migration is imperative and needs to be done continuously. It is important to sensitize leaders in the private sector on how to use their office to reduce stigma on returned migrants, ensure the returnees are reintegrated properly in society through businesses and jobs, and contribute to raising awareness on these matters. Also, as aspiring leaders we need to be aware of the dangers of irregular migration. This helps us make better and informed choices on any future migratory plans as well as points us to the right channels of migration.
