Some African countries dislike Nigerians – Rep Rita Orji



Rep Rita Orji (PDP, Lagos), the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora, , has lamented the treatment Nigerians receive in some African countries.
She said happenings over the years had shown that Nigerians were not welcome in certain places on the continent.
Orji advised those in hostile countries to return home instead of being targeted for hate crimes that lead to untimely deaths in the hands of citizens of their host countries.
Rep Orji spoke in her office on Monday in reaction to reported killing of Nigerians in Ghana and South Africa.
Urging the Nigerian government to urgently intervene in the situation in those countries, Orji said her committee has come up with a project aimed at encouraging Nigerian youths to stay in the country and put their talent to use.
“Last year, we initiated ‘Stay Home and Build’, In collaboration with Nigerians in Diaspora Organisations in various countries”, she said.
“We want to take these youths into custody of good Nigerians that will place them in companies where they will learn technologies, return home and be empowered to continue practising what they have learnt.
“We are working with the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) on building the most sophisticated technology acquisition centre which approval I have gotten right now that will take at least 600 youths.
“We are working with Nigerians in Diaspora, European chapter, American chapter, African chapter who all just left Nigeria after our recent meeting.
“They will help locate Nigerian youths that are doing nothing and help put them in companies over there where they can learn technical skills after which we will bring them home to key into the NDE project which is commencing next month”, she added.

She urged the Federal Government to insist on full autopsy report of any Nigerian killed extra-judicially outside the country to check unsubstantiated frequent claim of drug involvement by the victims.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
