Nigeria is Losing Bright Youths to other Foreign Countries – Gbajabiamila

The Japa syndrome has really got outgoing speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, worked up, as he urges the new lawmakers to act and act fast, as Nigeria is losing bright youths to other Countries.

Latest report reaching us today, confirm that really, the outgoing speaker of the House of Representatives said this.

Mr Femi Gbajabiamila had urged the newly elected lawmakers to quickly make plans and put it into motion as youths in the country have lost faith in Nigeria and are securing their futures in other countries of the world, no doubt countries like Canada, the USA, the UK, Australia, etc.

The outgoing speaker disclosed this on Wednesday, June 7 at a valedictory session organized for the 9th National Assembly in Abuja.

You should be aware that Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, will start working as the Chief of Staff to Nigerian newly elected President, Bola Tinubu, as early as next week.

The incoming Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu urged the new lawmakers to act fast, to stop the continuous exodus of bright youths to Europe. He said and I quote below:

“Honourable colleagues, despite the considerable investments we have made to improve our public infrastructure and the numerous reforms we have approved over the years to change how we administer the previous government of Buhari, our country faces many significant challenges, and one of it, is the continue exodus of bright Nigerian youths to European countries.

“These challenges have caused many of our fellow citizens to wonder if the promise of democracy will ever become a reality in their lifetime. The average Nigerian youth have lost faith and are going out in droves, seeking their fortunes and their futures in european countries.

“We are losing some of our best and brightest, and if we don’t act now, the consequences of this loss will shortly become painfully evident.”

“How do we ensure a healthy, vigorous, growing economy that provides opportunities for all who work hard to succeed through their labour and ingenuity?

“How do we protect our people from the marauders and insurgents, the petty criminals and assorted villains who wish to harm them, whether for profit or in service of other agendas?

“How do we restore faith in our young people so that so many of them no longer feel like the only way to achieve their best aspirations is to chase their fortunes in far away, often hostile lands?

“These are the critical questions all of us in government must answer or risk the unforgiving judgment of history. With each new day, we have an opportunity to make the hard choices and take the necessary actions to guarantee our nation’s future. With each new day, we have less time to act and a more outstanding obligation to act quickly.”

Although Nigerians did not react kindly to his genuine interest in the country’s youth. Many accuse the former Speaker of his children are living in the country, and where are the children of his fellow government workers.
