LAGOS — Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, has called on Nigerians  in Diaspora to come home and use their knowledge to finding lasting solutions to developmental challenges facing the country.

He spoke at the formal inauguration of the Association of Nigerian Graduates trained in the former Soviet Union and Commonwealth of Independent State (CIS), tagged SOYUZNIK Alumni Association of Nigeria at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Lagos.

He said: “If the best of us, our first 11, stay outside and say it does not work, we might just be getting what we deserve from our leaders back home.”

Fashola posited that in other parts of the world that he had visited and was aware of, their best brains almost always end up in the public service.

The governor said every Nigerian, either at home or abroad, should begin to talk less and do more in helping the country attain its Vision 2020 goal.
