A former Nigerian Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed has urged Nigerian youths to abscond from criticising Buhari and his administration and work harder.
Amina who is now with the United Nations in the capacity of Deputy Secretary General said this in a statement she released in Abuja through Oluseyi Soremekun, who is the National Information Officer, UN Office Nigeria.
The statement read, “You have got education, you have the tools, and you have a huge future ahead of you, and you are condemning yourself before you start on that journey. Do not do that! Be proud of Nigeria your country; do not condemn her and do not lose hope.
Amina said the world is not ready to lend a helping hand to 240 million Nigerian refugees.
“If you think Nigeria is worse than better, then how are you going to turn it around. If you do not want to build this nation, I do not know where you want to go. I can assure you the world is not ready to take 240 million Nigerians. Therefore, let’s think about how to salvage it together,”
“Whilst I agree that the potential of this country has not been fully met by successive governments, but I disagree with the view that there is no hope; I disagree with total condemnation of Nigeria. Nigeria is a great country and the best on earth.”
She further urged Nigerians to desist from comparing Nigeria with other countries. She maintained that the only countries Nigeria can be compared to should be those who got independence at the same time with her and those who have the same population with her.
