Results show that the daily average number of individuals observed in March 2019 at the FMPs in Nigeria was 1,145, a fourteen per cent decreased compared to February 2019. This decrease is reportedly attributed to restricted movements around the country during the recently conducted elections in Nigeria. In March, Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon were the main countries of intended destination and departure of individuals passing through the different FMPs. In addition, the main types of flows identified were: short term local movements (43% of all flows); economic migration of more than six months (35% of all flows); and seasonal migration (16% of all flows). Four main modes of transport were identified: travel by car (64% of all flows), bus (26% of all flows), bicycle (6% of all flows) and motorbike (4% of all flows). Nigerian (55%), Nigerien (34%), Chadian (4%), Malian (3%) and Cameroonian (2%) nationals were the main nationalities recorded this month.
