Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Interior, has warned young Nigerians against renunciating their citizenship in search of greener pastures. According to him, this is worrisome and counterproductive.
During the Ministerial Alignment Meeting of the Presidential Task Force on Deliverables for Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of Government, the Minister expressed his concerns.
The Minister, represented at the meeting by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, said that the Federal government would establish a mechanism that would keep young Nigerians engaged in productive activities.
It is important that these young people cease renunciating their citizenship.
According to Aregbesola, a committee will be formed at the Ministry with stakeholders responsible for overseeing the implementation of the relevant deliverables.
The director of Planning Research and Statistics (PRS) in the Ministry, Mr. Kabiru Ayuba, would chair the committee, which would include representatives of the four Ministries and other relevant officials.
