Nigerians are urged to stay home and defend their nation by Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, who has cautioned against the haste to leave the country.

On Monday, in honor of both his birthday and Christmas, Musa visited sick staff at the Defence Headquarters Hospital in Abuja and cautioned against the “Japa syndrome.”

He emphasized that showing love for the nation is what everyone should do and that fleeing 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 ran away, they would not have achieved that for them (Nigerians) to go and meet them.”

The CDS emphasized that the security issue should not be left to the Armed Forces and other security agencies and urged Nigerians to take responsibility for the problems the nation faces.

He says that combating insecurity requires cooperation from all Nigerians and that they should work together.

“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.
