President Bola Tinubu has said Nigeria has no reason to be poor, saying that the country is home to a lot of business opportunities.
Speaking at a town hall meeting with Nigerians in the diaspora on Wednesday in New York, the United States of America, Tinubu said that the country is just poor in some leadership areas.
Tinubu then encouraged Nigerians in the U.S. to rise above failure by changing their mindset for success in all their endeavours and come back hm to settle.
He said, “I want to give you a measure that will resonate with you. I was once a diaspora. What you have been through, I have been through it. A change of mindset is necessary. Take it this night that Nigeria is home for business opportunities.
“Also, anywhere you stay, there is always going to be an opportunity in, and in everything you do. There is always going to be an opportunity if you know how to search and put your mind to it.
“But, we need you back home. Nigeria has arrived; forget the frustration of the previous leadership.
“We are just poor in some leadership areas. That is what I harped on during my campaign. It was a very gruesome campaign, but I won the election. But if I didn’t throw myself into it with strong determination, I wouldn’t have won.
“You can do the same as many of you here who are contesting elections.”
