According to President Muhammadu Buhari, his administration expects Nigerians living abroad to be eager to contribute to the country’s development.
“As our Diaspora Ambassadors, we expect your willingness to ‘give back’ to Nigeria some of your resources, talents, skills and global exposure in the development of our great country, Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said.
The president made this appeal on Saturday at a Townhall with Nigerians in Diaspora in New York.
Mr. Buhari added urged Nigerians living in the United States to keep doing well and serve as responsible ambassadors for their country.
“It is gratifying for me to note that many Nigerians in the USA have continued to excel in their careers leading to some being appointed into the cabinet of His Excellency President Joe Biden.
“I congratulate those who have brought honors and pride to our country. I thank and commend them for their respective successes as I equally urge them to demonstrate the highest sense of responsibilities in order that they continue to remain reference points of excellence as they serve human kind in this country,” Mr. Buhari said.
