    I heard something about the ambassador fleeing Tripoli leaving some Nigerian citizens but are we being unfair in accusing him of cowardice? The situation in Tripoli has extremely chaotic over the past couple of weeks and most foreign diplomats have already left, so the Nigerian ambassador is not alone in his action. If the government is not forthcoming with resuce planes for Nigerians, there is really little else the ambassador could have done- maybe there are some embassy staff on ground monitoring the situation

    By now we should be able to undestand oue fellow nigerians better. let's face reality , who wants to die before his time? if he remained in Tripoli , he might be killed and the 12,440 nigerian citizen will still be alive and still be stranded.so i dont blame him. Every man to himself, God for us all

    Can't say I blame the ambassador- frankly our government's response to the Libyan crisis has been pathetic to say the least. The ambassador's action may seem callous but I would probably have done the same time if I were in his shoes-Linda have you been watching the news at all? If he had died, who would have looked after his children?

    This man should be sacked immediately. His job includes that of ensuring the safety of Nigerians in that country, that is why he is paid handsonmely. The is the time he should have exhibit his professional competence. He has no excuse for abandoning the people he is suppose to look after their welfare.

    I thought I saw Jonathan post on his face Facebook account, that they have evacuated 'Nigerian who wanted to leave' except if the 12, 440 people wanted to remain in Libya voluntarily. ASk Jonathan #whataboutus#

    I feel that his course of actions should be examined thoroughly, what steps did he take to ensure that those who wanted to evacuate were evacuated to safety? Did he just transport his family and himself to safety without thinking about the people under his care? Depending on what is found, I think appropriate action should be taken to either sack him or transfer him to another post.

    We were not there in the chaos, the man probably asked for help from Nigeria to help evacuate people but probably did not get any, we all know how things work in Nigeria. Also, if as reported people wanted to remain there then there is nothing he can do to force them to leave if they voluntarily wanted to stay. On the other hand, I can't mentioned any Nigerian politician who is selfless in service of the nation, none. He could have sent his family away and stayed to ensure that those who wanted to leave were taken to safety but it looks like he looked out for himself as I expect any Nigerian politician to do.

    An ambassador should take care of his citizens first. Why are we excusing him? If people keep acting so selfishly will things ever be better? The problem with Nigerians.... And tomorrow he will want to run for Governor and steward a million Nigerians when he couldn't care for 12,500? msheew.
