Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has stated that Nigerians are often good citizens abroad but something else in Nigeria.

Obasanjo called for the joint effort of Nigerians in diaspora to make Nigeria proud as they do in their domicile countries.

The former president spoke on behalf of a delegation of eminent traditional leaders and academics that included the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, His Royal Majesty Oba (Prof.) Saka Adelola Matemilola, at an evening reception, held at New Brunswick, New Jersey, United States of America (USA), over the weekend.

In a statement delivered by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo advised the Nigerian citizens abroad to reciprocate their togetherness and unity back home in Nigeria.

The statement reads in part, “Nigerian nationals are often very united when they are abroad but something else when they return to the country, therefore, I want to urge all to be good citizens, not only where you are, but when also you come home to Nigeria,” Obasanjo said.
