Nigerians studying overseas are being urged to return home and help their country to recover, according to Titilayo Solarin, a permanent secretary of the Lagos Education District I.
On Thursday, Ms. Solarin issued the notice during a one-day conference. Oluwatoyin Akindele, a district director who was Ms. Solarin’s representative, said that Nigerian students who had the opportunity to study abroad must return to their own country.
She was quoted to have stated: “The best still for all Nigerians studying abroad is to come and give back to their own country. After studying abroad, we need to develop our own country. Those countries over there, if they were not developed, no one would desire to go over there to study.
“We should get to the point where we, as citizens of Nigeria, should learn how to take good care of our own country and build it up so that our country will be one we will be proud of.”
“Who will build our own country if they (our children) remain over there? Who will take care of Nigeria if our children remain over there?,” She enquired.
