Nigeria Is The Best Country In The World — UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed Says





Despite the myriad issues that its people face, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed has stated that Nigeria remains the best country in the world.


The UN head conceded that previous governments in Africa's most populous country had failed at some point, but stressed that all hope for the country's restoration was not lost.


She urged Nigerian youths to stop criticizing the country, saying that foreign countries could not afford to house 240 million Nigerians.

According to a statement signed by the UN National Information Officer in Nigeria, Oluseyi Soremekun, Ms Mohammed said this during an event organized by the Baze University in Abuja over the weekend.

“You have got education, you have the tools, and you have a huge future ahead of you, and you are condemning yourself before you start on that journey. Do not do that! Be proud of Nigeria, your country; do not condemn her and do not lose hope.

“If you will your country that way, that’s the direction it will go. Even if it is not so good, you need to will it to succeed, because the success of this country is yours. If you fail, we will have conflict after conflict.

“If you think Nigeria is worse than better, then how are you going to turn it around? If you do not want to build this nation, I do not know where you want to go. I can assure you the world is not ready to take 240 million Nigerians. Therefore, let’s think about how to salvage it together,” she said.

Ms Mohammed went on to exhort youths to take part in the country's development rather than criticizing Nigerian governments and institutions. She urged them to make a sacrifice that would lead the country in the right direction.

“Whilst I agree that the potential of this country has not been fully met by successive governments, but I disagree with the view that there is no hope; I disagree with total condemnation of Nigeria. Nigeria is a great country and the best on earth.

“Young people must get involved. There is no reason to throw stones at any institution of government unless you are willing to get into that government and do something about it. It might take you a lifetime, but it does require people to make the sacrifice. If enough of us are pushing in the right direction, there will be a big difference,” Ms Mohammed added.
