Hardship: “Pray For Change, Escaping To Other Countries Isn’t The Solution, ” – CAN To Nigerian Youths

The archbishop argued that the solution to the country’s problems is not emigration.

He said: “Nigerians have endured the strife and extreme difficulties. Unfortunately, those who could not bear the situation migrated to other nations in search of greener pastures, commonly known as ‘japa syndrome’.

“The solution is not in running away to other countries but in finding ways to restore hope of the citizens in our dear country. Nigeria is blessed with abundant human and natural resources more than many nations of the world, but we need to get it right on the management of these resources for the good of all.”
