UN warns: Build Nigeria, There’s no hiding place if Nigeria collapse.

The United Nations has warned youths not to work against the interest of the country, saying the world won’t be able to accommodate 240 million Nigerians as migrants should the country collapse.

Recall that the United Nations Secretary, Antonio Guteres, had also, in the aftermath of the EndSARS protest, warned against issues that could disintegrate the country and create refugee problems for Africa and the world.

Mrs, Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, who said in a statement signed by National Information Officer, UN Office, Nigeria, Oluseyi Soremekun, cautioned Nigerian youths to start building the country with their God-given skills and talents.

Amina spoke against the background roles youths played in the EndSARS protests that eventually turned destructive, following the hijack of the protests by evi perpetrators as well as the attacks on the country by young Nigerians on social media.

The statement, titled “Be proud of Nigeria, don’t condemn her, don’t lose hope”, read: “You have got education, you have the tools, and you have a huge future ahead of you, and you are condemning yourself before you start on that journey.

“Do not do that! Be proud of Nigeria your country; do not condemn her and do not lose hope.

If you think Nigeria is worse than better, then how are you going to turn it around?  If you do not want to build this nation, I do not know where you want to go.

“Some people take you seriously because you are educated and in the university.”

The Deputy Secretary-General begged them to of their statement twice and weigh the implications carefully before saying it, noting that there were opportunities to collectively make things better in Nigeria.

“Young people must get involved. There is no reason to throw stones at any institution of government unless you are willing to get into that government and do something about it.

‘’It might take you a lifetime, but it does require people to make the sacrifice. If enough of us are pushing in the right direction, there will be a big difference,” the UN deputy scribe said.
