Presidency slams Gov. Masari, warns Nigerians to stop destroying country overseas

The Presidency has come down hard on Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State over the latter’s recent statement where he purportedly sought for foreign intervention in addressing the menace of terrorism and banditry in the country.

It also cautioned those destroying Nigeria overseas and calling for foreign intervention in Nigeria’s affairs, describing those behind them as ‘acting in bad faith’.

This was contained in a statement signed by Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, on Wednesday.

Mallam Shehu made reference to Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State’s recent description of the calls on “foreign powers to meddle in the internal affairs of Nigeria” as the ‘highest level of unpatriotism’.

He cautioned Nigerians to be good ambassadors of Nigeria if they want foreigners to think positively about the country.

Mallam Shehu’s statement read, “There’s nothing to gain by disparaging your country overseas. Every citizen must respect their nation.

“Those countries they go to and say bad things about Nigeria, their citizens dare not do that.

“When they go outside, they speak well of their nation. They are ambassadors of their own country.

“They are salesmen for their nations. Why do we go out and tell the worst stories of our own country?

“I think that Nigerians have to change. If we don’t love this country and if we don’t promote it, nobody will do it for us.

“This is very clear from the message Governor (Aminu) Masari (of Katsina State) issued a few days ago.’’
