Nigerians Abroad Indulging in Crime Not Representing Our Values -Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the few Nigerians abroad indulging in criminal activities do not represent the values of majority of the people of the country.

Femi Adesina, the president's spokesman in a statement in Abuja, said President Buhari stated this when he met with leaders of the Nigerian community living in Japan.

The meeting was on the sidelines of the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7), on Thursday in Yokohama, Japan.

The president said: "Let me also say that there are few Nigerians in the Diaspora that are giving us a bad name by engaging in criminal activities. These Nigerians are a minority, they do not represent the values of our country, and I plead with them to change their ways. We will not condone any crime whether at home or abroad, and we will also not allow these Nigerians define us as a people with a reputation for criminality."

While urging Nigerians in Japan to be good ambassadors of their fatherland, the Nigerian leader said, “I am personally very happy that there are millions of Nigerians all over the world, like you here, who are truly making us proud.”

He described the majority of the over 17 million Nigerians in Diaspora as “the face of Nigeria globally and our ambassadors for good.”
