Never forget home — Pres. Buhari urges Nigerians in diaspora


President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians in diaspora to always contribute their quota to the development of the nation by always promoting Nigeria’s unity.

The president said this on Wednesday night, June 29, in Lisbon, Portugal, at a meeting with representatives of Nigerians living the country.

According to him, “The world is a global village and technology has shrunk the world even more. Although you reside beyond Nigeria’s boundaries you can engage easily with the country. In fact, we see the impact of that engagement clearly on social media.

This platform has empowered Nigerians in the Diaspora and given you great influence. As we have seen, however, social media can be a force for good as well as a force for evil.

I, therefore, call upon you to use social media responsibly. We all want the best for our country and people, so let us strive to build, unite and prosper our nation and people and not to ins#lt and incite from a safe and anonymous distance.

You must continue to be our ambassadors-at-large in your comportment, actions and character. You must excel and be the best in all your endeavours. While here, you must also not forget home as you are the example we want to project to the rest of the world.”
