Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, claims that if elected, he will reverse Nigeria’s brain drain.

Obi is currently abroad, meeting with Nigerians in diaspora ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The former Anambra governor claimed in a series of tweets on Wednesday that the country has yet to fully capitalize on the enormous benefits of its residents living abroad.

He said beyond their vital roles of sending foreign remittances back home, the diaspora were increasingly critical in advancing technology and skill transfer, strengthening democracy, opening up global supply chains, trade and foreign direct investment, education and research, as well as healthcare delivery.

“As we explore ways and means of tapping in on technology transfer from the diaspora, we will also explore ways of reversing the enormous brain drain that has been debilitating for our country,” he tweeted.

“Like India, Nigeria, should be able to tap her huge diaspora human resource to ensure technology transfer home. We will trigger every known technological and knowledge transfer initiators. Nigeria’s brain drain will be turned into brain gain.”
