The Federal Government has appealed to young Nigerians to stop the trend of renouncing their citizenship in pursuit of greener pasture abroad.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola who made the appeal on Thursday, described it as worrisome and counterproductive.
He expressed concerns at the Ministerial Alignment Meeting of the Presidential Task Force on Deliverables for Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of Government.
Represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, the Minister said the Federal government would put up a mechanism in place that would keep young Nigerians busy in productive activities.
He said a committee would be set up in the Ministry with stakeholders to oversee the operations and implementation of the deliverables.
The committee would be chaired by the Director, Planning Research and Statistics (PRS) in the Ministry, Mr. Kabiru Ayuba, with representatives of the four Services under the Ministry and other relevant officers.
