President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the issue of Nigerians seeking asylum in the United Kingdom.
The President shared his views while fielding questions from the foreign media in the United Kingdom.
President Buhari, in what has been described as a frank interview, conceded that Nigeria has an image problem abroad which makes it difficult for citizens to emigrate to the West.
He, however, said that Nigerians can stay at home where their services are needed.
President Buhari told the Daily Telegraph newspaper that those Nigerians have also made it difficult for Europeans and Americans to accept them because of the number of Nigerians in prisons around the world accused of drug trafficking or human trafficking.
“We have an image problem abroad and we are on our way to salvage that,” he said.
The Nigerian President went on to say that he thinks that a minority of his countrymen could do with improving their behaviour.
