Nigerians who are migrating abroad has been advised to shun leaving the country rather they should stay and fight whatever the challenge is.
Why Nigerians Must Stay Back To Build The Country
While visiting ailing personnel at the Defence Headquarters Hospital in Abuja, the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Gen. Christopher Musa advised against the rush to migrate abroad.
Musa, who spoke on Monday during the visit which was to mark Christmas and his birthday, urged everyone to exhibit love for the country, adding that running away is not a solution.
“We must stay and fight whatever challenge is. Those countries they are running to stood back and fought and got to where they are.
“If they had ran away, they would not have achieved that for them (Nigerians) to go and meet them.”
For the CDS, Nigerians need to take ownership of the challenges facing the country and should not leave it all for the Armed Forces and other security agencies to mitigate against the security issues facing the country.
“We cannot do it alone. We need the support of everyone. When you see something, say something, report as quickly as possible so that measures can be put in place adequately.
“We will continue to seek for support of members of the public to take ownership of our challenges.
“Nigeria is our own. If Nigeria succeeds, we all succeed, if Nigeria fails we all fail and we don’t want Nigeria to fail.
“So I call on all Nigerians to give us all the support,” he added.
