Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians in diaspora to fire up their patrotism and invest in Nigeria’s growth.
While speaking at the annual general meeting of Nigeria in Diaspora Organisation Europe (NIDOE) holding in Germany, Jonathan who joined the meeting virtually told them not to wait till systems in Nigeria begin to function efficiently before investing their talent and resources for the nation’s growth.
The former president said,
“The Diaspora has always been an important part of Nigeria’s development journey. You act as agents of change because of your capacity to deploy your expertise, facilitate investments and leverage international connections to boost economic and industrial development.
“This is not the time to wait until our country and its systems begin to run efficiently before you consider investing your talents and resources to its growth. This is the time for all of us to fire up our patriotism and explore more ways of helping to build our nation.“
