Despite the issues I have with this administration, I try to acknowledge when something good comes out of Nigeria's government.
"please don't criminalize Nigerians even if they left Nigeria without adequate papers. They are working hard in your economy, they are adding value to your economy, regularize their papers,"
"If a Nigerian is working hard in London, Sweden, United States or any other country but doesn't have papers, give him his papers after all that is a typical case of using diplomacy. Most Nigerians are honest and hard working people. I think I am sick and tired of this criminalization of my countrymen because this is one of the most beautiful countries in the world,"I am happy to hear someone, anyone, say something good about Nigerians. Some Nigerian officials have no problem disrespecting Nigerians by not only ignoring the people's needs but speaking of them disparagingly like IBB did in 2007. So when a Nigerian official speaks up for the people, he deserves a little spotlight.
