Minister of Youth Development Bolaji Abdullahi has said that no fewer than 1,000 Nigerian youths are serving jail terms in China for various drug offences.

 Abdullahi, who disclosed this to newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, yesterday said he had written to the Chinese government to have the details of the offences “so that the Federal Government could use them as a campaign to discourage Nigerian youths from drug trafficking business.



“This is a very serious matter. I have written to the government of China and I am planning to actually travel there on behalf of the Federal Government to have the details of their cases. Many of our youths who indulge in drug trafficking business in a bid to get rich quick are not always aware of the dire consequences and the risks involved. The risks far deplete the benefits. In fact, there is none.

“Whoever gets involved will get caught sooner than later and whatever that might have been acquired will go with it. So where is the benefit?

“The only way to a good living is to be involved in legitimate business whereby nobody is running after you for committing an offence. There is nothing like getting rich quick and there is no short cut to it,” the minister said.

Some things never change, do they?
I suppose the cheaper alternative of weekly video conferences, emails and telex aren't quite as enjoyable, eh, minister?

The OP stated they were serving jail terms. That means their verdict was 'guilty'.

Nigeria thrives on corruption, it is corruption that sent those fellows out of the country in search of money, unfortunately, these countries have no place for foreigners at all unlike Nigeria where the road is free for everyone including these foreigners. And our embassies are terrible. Most of our ambassadors are not serving their citizens out there, as usual, very corrupt. Infact, Nigeria is the only country where people are paid, and they do not render the service. What is the Nigerian ambassador to china, or whatever they call him/her doing about all these?
