President Bola Tinubu has urged Nigerians living in the United States to overcome failure by adopting a new mindset that will help them succeed in all of their endeavors.
At the Presidential Townhall Meeting with Nigerians in the Diaspora on Wednesday in New York, Tinubu offered the counsel and pointed out that there was no excuse for Nigerians to be impoverished.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission organized the Townhall Meeting in conjunction with the 78th session of the UN General Assembly.
Nigeria is a privileged nation, according to Tinubu, who praised efforts to educate out-of-school children, the healthcare program, and the need to alleviate poverty.
“Sincerely, we don’t have any reason to be poor, we are just poor in some leadership areas.
“That is what I harped on during my campaign. It was a very gruesome campaign but I won the election but if I didn’t thrown myself into it with strong determination and result, I wouldn’t have won.
“There were so many hurdles on my way that would have stopped me. I refused to be stopped, you can do the same as many of you here that are contesting elections”, the President said.
