President Muhammadu Buhari suggested on Monday that Nigerians who felt that they had another country outside Nigeria could leave.
He believes those who are patriotic will wait to develop the country.
His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, quoted the President, in a statement, as saying this while receiving the All Progressives Congress governorship aspirants and members of the party from the three senatorial zones of Kwara State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari also urged Nigerians to remain faithful and loyal to the country in all their dealings.
Buhari said, “You don’t have to be in uniform to be loyal.
“What I said long ago in 1984 is still valid today. We have no other country but Nigeria.
“Others who feel they have another country may choose to go. We will stay here and salvage it together.”
