President Muhammadu Buhari has said that many Nigerians that fled the country for greener pastures are now trying to come back.
The President also urged Nigerians to shun individualism and sectionalism in the bids to unite the nation.
He gave the advice while receiving residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) led by the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello, who paid him a Sallah homage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President called for all hands to be on deck in order to salvage the nation. He said that every Nigerian should preach the message of peace and that we as a people must work together to ensure we salvage our country. He said;
“Please in your constituencies emphasized what I said about 30 years ago, we don’t have another country except Nigeria.
We may as well remain here and salvage it together, there is nothing else we can do. Even those that had gone out are now trying to come back because they are not wanted out there. I wish all the resources they had been deployed here.
It would have been much better. So thank you very much and please try to persuade your constituencies to work much harder away from individualism and sectionalism.”
