Nigerians in the diaspora have called for more support from the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, saying its giant steps should be commended.

In a statement by Professor Peter Otah, Secretary of the Nigerian Diaspora Leaders (NLID) Friday in Abuja, Nigerian Diaspora leaders made the call at a rally in London, UK.

The NLID in the statement, obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) noted that unity and peace were essential for progress and development in the country.

The rally organized by Nigerian leaders was held in the famous Trafalgar Square and brought together Nigerians and a few other nationals.

He said the rally aimed to appreciate the many landmark achievements of the Buhari-led administration over the past six years.

He added that it was also about rallying support for the Nigerian military and praying for the country.

The leaders prayed for more success for the administration, especially as it consolidates efforts to tackle the seemingly intractable insecurity in the country.

Mr. Ade Omole, addressing the rally, said Nigeria was lucky to have Buhari at this point.

“Providence shone in Nigeria the day Buhari was declared the winner of the 2015 presidential election.

“Buhari has left no doubt that his belief and his efforts are aimed at ensuring an equal Nigeria which will ensure economic prosperity, a society free of corruption and a nation which is viable for business,” he said. .

He added that despite the country’s current challenges, with unity and focus, the country would remain a nation, a people and a great indivisible nation.

Mr. Talba Galadima, one of the Nigerian diaspora leaders, also said that Nigeria had never been so good in the past four decades until the emergence of Buhari.

He stressed that the many obvious milestones that the Buhari administration had made showed that the country was projected for a sustainable economic and social El Dorado.

Also speaking, Ms. Edith Nwachukwu, said Nigeria was fortunate to have a man of unprecedented integrity like Buhari as its president.

She described Buhari as a master builder of infrastructure, saying the president has had an impact on the lives of Nigerians with the various projects undertaken since 2015.

She listed the achievements of the government led by Buhari to include rail infrastructure, agricultural renovation, reengineering of roads and energy, among others.

Nwachukwu argued that a government that turned the whole country into a construction site deserved the support and praise of its people.

On security, Mr. Joseph Adebola, a Nigerian diaspora leader, called the federal government’s recent purchase and delivery of Super Tucanos Warcraft a big gesture.

Adebola, a leading lawyer in the UK, said buying the Warcraft would provide security and encourage foreign investors in the country.

He praised the successes recorded in the fight against the insurgency which had seen the Boko Haram insurgency confined to part of the country.

Likewise, the federal government’s anti-banditry measures aimed at quelling the threat of banditry and kidnappings are a joy to us in the Diaspora, ”Adebola said.
