FG urges US-based Nigerians to return if Trump makes life difficult

10 November 2016, 11:48

Abuja - The federal government says it will welcome its citizens in the US home if Donald Trump, the new President-elect, makes life uncomfortable for them over there.
The government’s position according to The Cable was made known by Audu Ogbeh, Minister of Agriculture of Wednesday.

Audu spoke with state house correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.

Ogbeh expressed shock at Trump’s victory.

He said Nigeria might re-tool its foreign policy if Trump turned out to be a sectional President.

He stated that comments made by Trump against Nigeria during the electioneering campaign is a pointer that Nigerians living in the US are in for a hard time during his tenure.

"The rest of the world will have to then carefully watch and see the impact first. He made comments about Nigerians when he was campaigning that they had stolen money, they should go back to their country and live"

He has a very low opinion of the blacks and Hispanics. We hope he’ll become a President now for all, including Nigerians and others, resident in the US.

“But if he doesn’t, it means we’ll have to re-tune and re-tool our foreign policy to begin to find a situation where we may have to be welcoming some of our people if they come under extreme pressure. We hope it doesn’t happen.”

Many Nigerians living in the US are already preparing to relocate back to Nigeria.

Many of them are already tweeting about making plans to return.
