President Buhari Receives Accolades From Nigerians In Diaspora, Urged To Do More
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, received praises from Nigerians in the Diaspora Organisation (NIDO), for securing the country and reviving the economy.
The President, who was presented with an award by the Nigerian community in the United States of America, in appreciation of his performance, was also urged to do more.
Addressing the community on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York, President Buhari said he will keep doing his best for the country.
The diaspora Nigerians in their scores drawn from various fields expressed the wish to come back home and contribute their quota, to which the president replied: “You are contributing to this great country (America). If you want to help back home invest in education in your constituencies. If you educate people, they won’t accept nonsense from anybody.”
He added: “I’ve tried to do my best since I came,” he stressed, adding: “Security-wise, we are better. Boko Haram still conducts cowardly attacks, but the insurgency is not the same as it used to be. They are terrorists, and have nothing to do with religion. We will continue to deal with them. Ask people in the North-east, especially in Borno State, they will tell you they can sleep with two eyes closed now.”
The parley was organised by Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters.
