President Bola Tinubu has encouraged Nigerians in the United State to rise above failure by having a change of mindset for success in all their endeavours in life.
The president gave the advice at the Presidential Townhall Meeting organised on Wednesday in New York by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) on the sidelines of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
He further urged the Nigerians to embrace one another, stressing that there should not be sentiment and discrimination among them.
“I want to give you a measure that will resonate with you. I was once a diaspora. What you have been through, I have been through it. Change of mind set is necessary.
“Take it this night that Nigeria is home for business opportunities.
“Also, anywhere you stay, there is always going to be an opportunity in, and in everything you do, there is always going to be an opportunity, if you know how to search and put your mind into it,’’ he said.
The president, however, expressed delight in the conduct of Nigerians who have continued to excel in their chosen fields in their host country.
President Tinubu, during the United Nations General Assembly called for an end of poverty on the African continent and over rich of stronger nations with resources of smaller nations.
“You are lucky to be among those who are celebrated for good manners and behavior and are operating in an acceptable manner.
“I’m very proud of you; I have also been beneficial of inspiration, determination, commitment and perseverance and that is all you need to get to pull through.
“But, we need you back home, Nigeria has arrived; forget the frustration of the previous year’s leadership,’’ he said.
