Nigerians seeking asylum abroad are insincere - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari believes  that Nigerians seeking asylum in Europe are doing so mainly for economic reasons and not because they are in danger as they often claim.
He therefore asked those keen on joining the migrant exodus to desist as some Nigerians have already damaged the.....
country’s reputation through their criminal acts in their host countries.

Buhari spoke to The Telegraph of London during his visit to England as one of the world’s leaders to take part in the international conference on the Syrian crisis and the ongoing war on terror.

“Some Nigerians claim is that life is too difficult back home, but they have also made it difficult for Europeans and Americans to accept them because of the number of Nigerians in prisons all over the world accused of drug trafficking or human trafficking,” he was quoted as saying.

He added:”I don’t think Nigerians have anybody to blame. They can remain at home, where their services are required to rebuild the country.”

The paper said that  only around one in ten of the 13,000 asylum claims lodged by Nigerians in Britain in the last 15 years have been accepted. He was of the view that some  Nigerians  needed to improve their behaviour  and said: “We have an image problem abroad and we are on our way to salvage that.”
