Japa: We should all stay back, fight for Nigeria -Defence Chief

The Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Gen. Christopher Musa, on Monday advised Nigerians against the rush to migrate abroad, urging them to stay back and fight for the country.
Musa revealed this during his visit to ailing personnel at the Defence Headquarters Hospital, Abuja, to mark Christmas and his birthday.
He urged all to exhibit love for the country, adding that running away is not a solution.
“We must stay and fight whatever challenge is. Those countries they are running to stood back and fought and got to where they are.
“If they had run away, they would not have achieved that for them (Nigerians) to go and meet them.”
The CDS also called on Nigerians to take ownership of the challenges facing the country, adding that the security challenge should not be left to the Armed Forces and other security agencies.
According to him, insecurity calls for a collective effort and all Nigerians should put hands together to address the challenge.
“We cannot do it alone. We need the support of everyone. When you see something, say something, report as quickly as possible so that measures can be put in place adequately.
“We will continue to seek for support of members of the public to take ownership of our challenges.
“Nigeria is our own. If Nigeria succeeds, we all succeed, if Nigeria fails we all fail and we don’t want Nigeria to fail.
“So I call on all Nigerians to give us all the support,” he added.
