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.”
