Obasanjo Charges Nigerians In Diaspora On Unity

May 25, (THEWILL) – Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has charged Nigerians abroad to reciprocate the unity they shared in foreign countries whenever they come back to Nigeria.

He stated this after being impressed by the unity exhibited among Nigerians in the Unity States Of America (USA).

Obasanjo, who was in the US in company of eminent traditional leaders and academics including the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Oba (Prof.) Saka Adelola Matemilola, at an evening reception in New Brunswick, New Jersey, over the weekend, urged Nigerians in the diaspora to replicate such unity whenever they return to Nigeria.

In a statement by his Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo told the gathering that Nigerians in the diaspora are making the country proud in their different areas of endeavour and urged them to be good citizens wherever they are domiciled.

“Nigerian nationals are often very united when they are abroad but something else when they return to the country, therefore, I want to urge all to be good citizens, not only where you are, but when also you come home to Nigeria,” Obasanjo said.

Obasanjo, the Balogun (Prime Minister) of Owu Kingdom, however, thanked the Rutgers University management for the warm reception accorded the delegation and for the far-reaching engagements.

The event was put together by the Center for African Studies, Rutgers University, New Jersey, headed by Professor Bode Ibironke and was attended by the leadership of the University, amongst others.

Segun Ayinde, THEWILL
