Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide has said that President Muhammadu Buhari wants Nigerians trapped in the country, after turning Nigeria into the world headquarter of poverty.
This was in reaction to a recent paper made by Nigeria’s minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh wherein he begged the European Union Mission to reduce the spate of youths’ migration to the union’s member countries.
According to NAN, in an interview with newsmen at the end of the monthly meeting of Heads of Missions of European Union member countries in Abuja on Tuesday, Ogbeh said:
“We met today to explore areas of support for agriculture, agro-industrial growth and put forward the European Union proposal for partnership and enhanced support.
“We also looked at the possibility of their private sector investors coming into Nigeria to play a part.
“We also raised the issue of migration of our youths across to Europe and the fact that it is not sustainable.
“It is something that Nigeria will like to see come to an end by creating economic activities here to make sure that young people stay back at home.
“The response of the European Union was very encouraging.
“We want to set up a joint committee that can advance this programme because rather than youths going out, we want them to come back and invest in agriculture.
“We are also lucky that Nigerian youths are interested in agriculture, different from youths in other countries. Even those who studied other courses are interested in agriculture.
“We did raise the issue of kidnapping of investors here, we do not want any Nigerian or foreigner investing here to be kidnapped and taken away,’’ he said.
However, Omokri said the children of members of the Buhari led government have visas, yet they want to prevent others from “escaping”.
Omokri wrote: Look at these evil people! President Buhari and his inept administration have turned Nigeria into the world headquarters for extreme poverty. Now they want to stop people from escaping even when their children have visas!
