Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, has called on Nigerians resident in the US to return home if Donald Trump, president-elect, makes life uncomfortable for them.
Speaking with state house correspondents after the federal executive council (FEC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, Ogbeh expressed shock at Trump’s victory.
Ogbeh said Nigeria might re-tool its foreign policy if Trump turned out to be a sectional president.
“I’m in a bit of shock, but we’re witnessing some very dramatic changes in the world, and I think some of these things began many years ago,” he said.
“The current economic theory ravaging the world is now reaching the poor and the ordinary people. It’s causing a lot of stress. Brexit happened, America has done this now. Many other countries are going to have near extremism ruling the minds of people.
“The rest of the world will have to then carefully watch and see the impact first. He made comments about Nigerians when he was campaigning that they had stolen money, they should go back to their country and live.
