Don’t be lawbreakers in Korea, Buhari tells Nigerians 

• October 27, 2022

President Muhammadu Buhari has advised Nigerians to be law-abiding in South Korea. He urged them to project a positive image of Nigeria through their conduct.

Mr Buhari stated this during an interactive meeting with select members of the Nigerian community as part of his engagements at the end of the First World Bio Summit 2022, in Seoul, on Thursday, according to a statement by his media aide Femi Adesina.

“As law-abiding citizens of our great country, I advise that you replicate the excellent Nigerian virtues by coexisting peacefully with your hosts and abide by the laws of the land. You must always strive to eschew any acts of lawlessness in your day-to-day activities and to take it as a major responsibility to encourage other Nigerians to always remain of excellent behaviour,” said Mr Buhari.

He added, ”Nigeria is and will always be our only country, and you should always pray and work for the peace and prosperity of our beloved country,” urging them to “desist from any acts capable of causing disaffection among our people.” 

The president further stated that “Nigerians in diaspora in many countries of the world have achieved tremendous successes through hard work, resilience and resourcefulness.”

He said, “I have no doubt in my mind that similar success stories will continue to be replicated amongst the Nigerian diaspora community in the Republic of South Korea.”
