In a candid interview with Arise TV, Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, sheds light on the concerning trend of Nigerians relocating overseas to take up jobs they previously shunned in their home country. Highlighting the disparity between educational qualifications and menial employment, Tinubu emphasizes the need for collective support within the Nigerian community and responsible use of resources.

Tinubu underscores the importance of assisting fellow Nigerians and addressing societal challenges rather than indulging in excessive leisure activities.
