Nigerians Abroad Taking Jobs They Refused at Home, Says Remi Tinubu


Mrs Remi Tinubu, the wife of President Bola Tinubu, expressed her concern about Nigerians abroad who have opted for jobs that they were reluctant to undertake in Nigeria.

In an interview with Arise News on Thursday, March 21, the former senator not only emphasized the importance of Nigerians supporting each other during the economic crisis but also questioned the motives of those who choose to “japa” (leave the country) and engage in work they previously rejected in Nigeria.

Tinubu urged Nigerians to collaborate and assist one another, highlighting that it is not solely the government’s responsibility to provide food for everyone.

She emphasized the significance of individuals who have been blessed by God extending their help to the less privileged.

She also raised a valid point about those who migrate to other countries and end up doing jobs they were unwilling to do in their homeland.

Tinubu questioned the nature of work they pursue abroad, emphasizing that they often find themselves engaged in occupations they had previously shunned in Nigeria.

She noted that despite their educational qualifications, some individuals drive taxis in foreign countries but refuse to do so when they are in Nigeria, where they have their loved ones.
