Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that huge countries like Nigeria will always have the issue of brain drain.

Osinbajo, according to a statement yesterday by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, said this Monday evening in Ottawa while interacting with some leaders of Nigerian groups across different provinces in Canada. 

The vice president said: “There is concern around brain drain, but the reality is that there will always be that issue and huge countries like ours will always have it.” 

He said the vast majority of Nigerians abroad were honest, hardworking and straightforward people making positive impact all over despite the damage to the reputation of the country by a few.

The Nigerian High Commissioner to Canada, Ambassador Adeyinka Asekun, said Nigerians living in Canada would soon be able to apply for 10-year passport leaflets.
