Sell your property and come pay tax – Buhari tips Nigerians in diaspora

President Muhammad Buhari has called on Nigerians living abroad to join him in his development efforts for the west african nation. He suggested they sell their properties abroad due to Brexit concerns and bring some for tax purposes in Nigeria.

The Nigerian leader who recently returned from a medical vacation in London also commented on protesters who came to his residence at Abuja House asking him to resume or resign just under 2 weeks ago.

Speaking with the state governors at the villa today, the President said, “I am very happy with the national prayers that cut across religions and ethnicity; people were praying.

“In fact, some groups in London came and sang the national anthem and asked that I should go back home. Indeed, I have come back home. I hope those who went there are not stuck there; they will come back and join us.

“Those that are stuck there with the Brexit, I hope they have weighed the implications that it won’t affect them, including those that have property there.

“Those who are not paying tax here, I hope when they sell their property there, they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here.”

The President also commended the efforts of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo during his medical vacation.

He said, “The efforts by the Vice President were commendable. He used his intellect to run all over the place. I was seeing him 24 hours on the Nigerian Television Authority.

“I congratulated him and I allowed him to come and see me to thank him personally for what he has done.”
