Nigerians United Abroad, Enemies At Home – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said Nigerians are more united while outside the country but seem to act like enemies when in their home country.

Obasanjo, who was impressed by the unity exhibited among Nigerians in the United States of America, urged Nigerians in the diaspora to reciprocate such togetherness when they are back home.

Report has it that the former President stated this on behalf of a delegation of eminent traditional leaders and academics that included the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, Oba Saka Matemilola, at an evening reception held at New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo told those at the event that Nigerians in the diaspora are making the country proud in their different areas of endeavour, urging them to be good citizens wherever they are domiciled.

Nigerian nationals are often very united when they are abroad, but something else when they return to the country, Obasanjo had said.

He appealed to them to be good citizens, not only outside the country, but also when they return home to Nigeria.

The Balogun Owu thanked the Rutgers University management for the warm reception accorded the delegation and for the “far-reaching engagements”.
