Summary

In Nigeria, FMPs were established in March 2017 in several important transit locations in Sokoto and Kano to monitor the movements of passenger buses to and from Niger. This dashboard is an overview of the data collected in these FMPs in May 2019. Results show that the daily average number of individuals observed that month at the FMPs in Nigeria was 1,466, a 6 per cent decrease compared to April 2019. This decrease is reportedly attributed to restricted movements around the country during the month of Ramadan.In May, Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon were the main countries of intended destination and departure of individuals passing through FMPs. The main types of flows identified were: short term local movements (45% of all flows); economic migration of more than six months (36% of all flows); and seasonal migration (13% of all flows). Nigerian (51%) and Nigerien (40%) nationals were the main nationalities recorded this month.
