The All Progressives Congress, (APC), Presidential flagbearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said Nigerians do not need to travel to seek greener pastures.
He made statement on Wednesday, January 12, while addressing a campaign rally in Enugu, adding that those who relocated are facing hardships in their host countries.
The former Lagos state governor said Nigeria as a country is so blessed that her citizens need not travel elsewhere to succeed.
Tinubu said partly; “Those who are running overseas are suffering. We have been there. Anybody who tells you that you cannot do something, pray you can do it.’’
Similarly, former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba has issued warning to Nigerians celebrating their relocation to foreign countries.
He said Africans who are traveling to Europe and North American nations would most likely be consripted into the army and shipped to Ukraine.
Garba said those celebrating being part of the ‘japa’ group will regret their actions by the time they are made to fight in the Ukraine war.
According to him, North America and Europe are looking for expendable persons that will be sent to war and Black African men, especially Nigerians will be among those that will be shortlisted.
The politician stated this while lambasting a lady who went on Twitter to celebrate after she secured her residency permit in Canada.
“I’m officially a Permanent Resident in Canada. 2022 couldn’t have ended any better. Goodbye Nigeria 🇳🇬 I will not miss you,” she wrote.
In response, Adamu said; “They’ll soon conscript you to go to war in Ukraine. All those doing Japa will regret their actions soon.
North America and Europe are looking for expendable assets to dispose at war front. The black guys moving their, especially Nigerians will soon discover themselves in Ukraine.”
