Buhari to Migrants - Stay At Home, Nigeria Will Be Better

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Nigerians taking the risky desert-Mediterranean route to Europe to stay at home as his administration is making efforts to make the country more liveable. Buhari says the "sheer desperation that makes youths dare both the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea, all in the bid to take up menial jobs in Europe, is hurting the pride of the country."
