Things Are Changing, Return Home – FG Tells Nigerians Abroad

On September 7, 2018 219 Comments

The Federal Government (FG) has made an appeal to Nigerians abroad, on returning home and helping the Nigerian government build the Nigeria of everybody’s dream.

Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, Nigeria’s Minister of Science and Technology who was in the U.S. to sensitise diaspora Nigerians on the Presidential Executive Order V signed by President Muhammadu Buhari in February, to improve local content in public procurement with science, engineering and technology components, told Nigerians in the country that things are fast changing at home.

According to the Minister, the old ways of doing things are now giving way to new ways as it is also expected that the recently signed Order will promote the application of science, technology and innovation towards achieving Nigeria’s development goals across all sectors of her economy.

The minister said: “Please we want you to return home, it is important. Not everybody will return but some can start coming home, and that’s the essence. We are telling you that things are changing in Nigeria, this is the message, that’s why I’m here.

I heard all the complaints people will do this and nobody responds and all that and so on; yes, these are things that happened in the past and we can’t correct these things just overnight. This is the truth, there is no way you can make these changes and then make the corrections and all that overnight. But the important thing is that there is a change”.

Mr Onu who spoke on behalf of the FG at the town hall meetings with Nigerians abroad, said there are many Bill Gates in Nigeria, adding, we need to give you the opportunities and we are giving these opportunities.

“Things are changing in our country, and if all of us can walk together, if we can do that, then we can now build a great nation that all of us would be proud of.

“This is the message and I believe that this is also your intentions that our nation will be a great nation. Please, you should never have any doubt about the future of our country.

“We have some of the most intelligent people in the world. I can tell you this because I know those Nigerians who have done so well in the best universities, in the best research centres in the world.”
