President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerians in the U.S. to adopt a positive mindset to achieve success in all aspects of life and overcome failures.
Tinubu gave the advice at the Presidential Townhall Meeting with Nigerians in the diaspora on Wednesday in New York.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Townhall Meeting was arranged by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission during the 78th session of the UN General Assembly.
“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 mindset 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, though, was pleased with how Nigerians have been doing exceptionally well in their respective fields in their host country.
“You are lucky to be among those who are celebrated for good manners and behaviour 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.
