Muhammadu Buhari has asked Nigerians in the diaspora to use their resources, skills and talents to assist the country.
The president urged Nigerians living in South Africa to always remember that they represent some of the best human assets Nigeria has.
He disclosed this at a town hall meeting with Nigerians living in South Africa on Friday, October 4, 2019, the last day of his three-day state visit.
PMB added that Nigerians should always know that the world is watching them as ambassadors of the country and they have to be credible representatives.
His words, “First, you are our Ambassadors and the face of our country to the world wherever you are.
“The world is therefore, watching you and would make judgments on Nigeria based on your comportment and actions.
“Second, in whatever legitimate engagement you find yourself, you must strive to excel and be the best.
“Third, while you are out in the Diaspora, do not forget home.
“You represent some of the best human asset that Nigeria has.
“With your education and exposure to the world, you are at the cutting edge of technology.
“I, therefore, urge you to use your resources, skills and talents to help the development of Nigeria.”
“”Let me again use this medium to condole the families of all those who lost their lives over the years in such tragic incidents. May their souls rest in peace.
“I also commiserate with all those who were injured. May God heal their wounds. My sympathies are also with those who have lost properties.
“As a government, we are quite disturbed by these very unfortunate events and have taken actions and measures to address this issue and prevent their reoccurrence with the South African government.”
