President Buhari Tells Illegal Migrants To Stay Home And Improve Their Economies

Rather than dare the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea, with scores of lives lost in the process, President Muhammadu Buhari has urged illegal migrants to stay back home, and find ways to improve their personal economies.

Receiving Hon. Louise Mushikiwabo, Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs, who came as Special Envoy of President Paul Kagame, at the State House, Abuja, Tuesday, President Buhari in a statement by his special adviser media ,Femi Adesina said Nigeria had taken it upon herself to bring back thousands of her citizens now stranded in Libya.

“Illegal migration is now a major issue in Africa. Many dare the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea to get into Europe, and many die in the process. Or they get into trouble, as we now see in Libya. I don’t envy our position, as many Blacks claim to be Nigerians, even when they are not.

“Our Embassies in North Africa are now overworked, trying to identify the true Nigerians. Most of the reasons they mention for migrating illegally are untenable. They should stay here, and see how they can improve their own economies, instead of risking their lives,” President Buhari said.

The President said Kagame, as the incoming Chairman of African Union (AU), had the issues of South Sudan, separatist agitation in southern Cameroon, unrest in Togo, and many others on the continent, to contend with.

“Gaddafi’s long rule produced many people, whose only skill is how to shoot guns. Now, they are scattered around the continent, still with their weapons, and fomenting trouble,” President Buhari said, adding that Nigeria was taking steps to curtail the development.

Hon. Mushikiwabo said President Kagame looked forward to the counsel and support of the Nigerian President, as he assumes the AU chair from this month.

“He will also need counsel on security issues in the Sahel, ongoing reforms in AU, borrow your expertise in agriculture, and renew friendship and kinship between our two countries,” Hon. Mushikiwabo said.

From Leadership


  1. Leadership by example how is he improving the economy when he carries foreign currency abroad for medical treatment?

  2. Gbam!!! You said it well.
    I hope he will also give them jobs to better the economy!

  3. It is better to die trying in the Sahara desert than to die of hunger in your very is even more painful when you are eminently qualified but can find job.He should shut up!
    His son bought $157,000*2 toy,while millions could not afford a meal a day.Bullshit

  4. How now? I sais how. Have you provided the right environment for youth to improve the economy. The environment is harsh to everyone. Things have gone upside down since you became president and you still want to recontest. Don't you think you should retire and let people that will improve the economy for younger generations take the post. You also need to pay attention to your health and spend time with yiur grandchildren. This should be your plan now as you are elderly. Don't listen to the people encouraging you to recontest, they are deceiving you.

  5. Please what is this man saying, go and lead by example. If Nigeria had a good working system people won't leave.
