Oujda, Morocco, Dec. 17 (Lusa) - Onoma Anigorigo, a 25-year-old citizen of Nigeria now living in Morocco after crossing the Sahara, is awaiting his chance to continue on to Europe to follow his dream of becoming a football star.
 
"I want to try to play in Switzerland, Germany or France," said Anigorigo, who three years ago left his wife and a seven-year-old daughter in Nigeria in search of a decent living to support his family. "I believe that I can get a job there too. I'm a hard-working man."
 
Starting out from Delta state in the south of Nigeria, he headed north into Niger and then Algeria, before walking across the border into Morocco one night before dawn.
 
So far he has played for small football clubs in Gambia and Morocco, but none paid him.
 
Anigorigo managed to cross the border between Algeria and Morocco despite its having been closed since 1994, when the government in Rabat imposed visa requirements for Algerians.
 
The border between the two countries runs for 1,600 kilometres, making it one of the longest closed borders in the world.
 
"I arrived here walking in the middle of the night," Anigorigo recalls. "It was seven hours on foot to Oujda. It wasn't easy."
 
The Nigerian lives in a suburb of Oujda, the capital of Morocco's Oriental region, whose population is about half a million.
 
Oujda, which is almost 15 hours by train to Rabat, is just 15 kilometres from the Algerian frontier.
 
With the little he can gather begging on the streets, Anigorigo pays 500 dirhams a month (about 50 euros) to live in a small room.
 
He is one of some 27,000 migrants who have benefited from Morocco's new policy to regularise them, introduced in 2013.
 
He now has a resident card that he renews every year and which allows him to travel in the country with the guarantee that he will not be deported, arrested or beaten up by the police.
 
Nigerians are among the most numerous foreign nationals in Morocco, along with those from French-speaking African countries.
 
"It's not easy to live here," says Anigorigo. "The difficult thing is to find work: the problem in this country is the lack of jobs.
 
"The language is also a barrier. I only speak English - I don't understand French or Arabic." While he awaits an opportunity to continue on to Europe in a legal way, Anigorigo relies on the solidarity of those going about their business on the streets of Oujda.
 
"There are many people dying at sea," he tells Lusa. "That's not fair. My dream is to reach Europe, but not by sea. I believe it's always better to have documents and be regularised.
