The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he can only order all ambassadors, 41 non-career ambassadors and 42 career ambassadors, to return to the country asap because the nation is bigger than every one of them.
Yusuf added that the general public should not pay attention to the misrepresentations in the media intended to undermine the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
His words, “This orchestrated media war must end to protect the integrity of Mr President and the sovereignty of Nigeria. The country is bigger than all of us. The general public is hereby advised to pay no heed to what is purely an administrative and procedural matter that has become the basis of misrepresentations in the media intended to undermine the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima.
Nigerians from all walks of life should remember, specially appointed public officials by the APC government, should remember that we have no any other country to call ours other than Nigeria. This caution also applies to those who will be appointed as ambassadors in the coming weeks, that they are first representatives of Nigeria’s interests and Mr President in their country of residence.
We have also discovered that severance payments known as passages have been sent to the recalled envoys through the Central Bank of Nigeria. This is verifiable information. Also, they are well aware that severance payments in Nigeria and all over the world follow due diligence and other forms of bureaucracy before payments are received.
At this juncture, we must thank those envoys who have not only written to their host governments but have registered their return in Abuja. Most importantly we thank President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for approving these payments as a testimony to the appreciation of the work of the envoys to Nigeria.”
