World Not Ready For 240 Million Migrants If Nigeria Implodes, UN Warns

The United Nations has warned youths not to work against the interest of the country, saying the world won’t be able to accommodate 240 million Nigerians as migrants should the country implode.

Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, Mrs. Amina Mohammed, who said this in a statement signed by National Information Officer, UN Office, Nigeria, Oluseyi Soremekun, cautioned Nigerian youths to start building the country with their God-given skills and talents.

She spoke against the backdrop of the roles youths played in the #EndSARS protests that eventually turned destructive, following the hijack of the protests by hoodlums as well as the strident attacks on the country by young Nigerians on social media.

The statement, titled “Be proud of Nigeria, don’t condemn her, don’t lose hope”, read: “You have got education, you have the tools, and you have a huge future ahead of you, and you are condemning yourself before you start on that journey.

“Do not do that! Be proud of Nigeria your country; do not condemn her and do not lose hope.

“If you think Nigeria is worse than better, then how are you going to turn it around?  If you do not want to build this nation, I do not know where you want to go.

“I can assure you the world is not ready to take 240 million Nigerians. Therefore, let’s think about how to salvage it together,” Mohammed was quoted as charging youths.

On youths who were quick to compare Nigeria with other countries, Mohammed urged them to compare Nigeria with other countries with equal population and that had independence at the same time.

“Do not compare apples with oranges,” she added.
