AMBODE CONFIRMS THAT NIGERIANS ARE FOREIGNERS IN NIGERIA!
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State speaking at a function in Lagos on February 7, 2017 says:
”There is perhaps no better classic example of where these challenges of rapid urbanization come to life than in Lagos. It is estimated that 86 immigrants enter Lagos every hour – the highest in any city in the world. And they have no plans to leave.
This is because Lagos has remained over time and most especially in the last decade, the most attractive destination for those who want to realise and live their Nigerian dream. This ever increasing population of the state, however, means that we have to be on our toes to provide facilities for this more than 23 million population.” Dictionary.com defines immigrant as, “a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.”
Only in Nigeria, will a governor describe citizens of the same country relocating within the same country as immigrants. Putting up a wall around Lagos State with immigration posts will stem the influx of these undesirable immigrants. After all, what right do they have to migrate to a city that was built with their money?
Africastallestman suggests that Lagos State should establish embassies and consulates all over Nigeria to issue visas to any Nigerian wishing to migrate to Lagos. Enough is enough!
