The elites of Nigeria have been told by the President Buhari, to stop making expensive demands from his administration as thing will no longer be done in the old ways as they may want anymore. Warning them to stop persisting as that has caused the nation already.
The President spoke during a meeting he had with a group of Nigerians in the Diaspora, on the margins of the 3rd Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security in Africa in Dakar, Senegal.
He said his administration was right on track in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
To the 11-man Nigerian delegation of association leaders resident in Senegal and Cote D’ Ivoire, he said the 16 years of mismanagement of the country’s fund is still continuously telling on the nation.
“This administration is pleased we won the election, we are pleased Nigerians are cooperating with us. But the problems are so enormous that we need the cooperation of Nigerians, particularly the elite.
“They (elite) should reflect on the condition of the country, and stop making expensive demands because things cannot be done the old way.” The President disclosed.
In consideration to the welfare of Nigerians in the Diaspora, the Federal Government would continue to promote good neighborliness and improve the negative perception about Nigerians abroad. President Buhari assured.
“Nigerians are known for their competitiveness and I am very passionate about Nigeria. I will continue to preach good neighborliness and work hard to improve the numerous human and material resources in the country,” he said.
