EUROPEAN UNION

Brexit Africans in Europe express disappointment with referendum result

 A cross section of Africanss in Europe on Friday expressed disappointment over the decision of the UK in a referendum to leave the European Union. Results released early on Friday by UK authorities indicated that 17, 410,742 Britons voted to leave EU, while 16,141,241 others voted to remain.



The Leave campaigners won by 52 per cent to 48 per cent with England and Wales voting strongly for Brexit, while London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed staying in the EU.


In telephone interviews with the Europe Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria some Nigerians described the outcome of the referendum as a catastrophe for ethnic minorities in Europe.


Mr Raymond Aste, a lawyer and political analyst in London, said those who voted in favour of Brexit (Britain Exit) did so emotionally in line with their individual opinion on what a Leave EU vote meant.


Aste said, “I can understand concerns by the white supremacist to stem the flow of immigrants into their country.


“But for the immigrant communities, it beats me as to how they considered voting to leave the EU.


“This has a long implication economically, legally and many others.”


Similarly, Dr John Duniya, who resides in Scotland, said the Leave EU outcome meant ethnic minorities would not have protection of EU laws, especially on human rights issues.


“Being under the EU meant we had some kind of protection under certain laws but with this development the UK will be in full control of its system without interference from the EU.


“Secondly, the argument put forward by the Leave campaigners on immigration control and better welfare for commonwealth citizens is just a deceit.


“I bet you, their idea of commonwealth means Australia and Canada, not Nigeria, Ghana , India and Pakistan.


In the same vein, Mrs Yetunde Olivier, a member of Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation, France, said “this is bad for Europe.


“Britain should have pushed for renegotiation in areas it is not comfortable with rather than seek for exit.


“This is not only about immigration, it is about trade, currency, law and, above all, supremacy.


“I hope at the long run Nigerians and others would not be kicked out of the UK,” she stressed.


Some Africans, who spoke to NAN from Switzerland, stressed the need for Nigerians in diaspora to start considering going back home.


Mr Uche Obiano, a systems analyst, said “all this fear about uncertainty in the UK can be addressed if we start considering going back to our fatherland.


Obiano said, “If Europeans developed Europe themselves we can also go back home and contribute to nation building.


“The so-called opportunities ethnic minorities in the UK think they will benefit from after Brexit are not jobs their people want.


“Britons do not do cleaning, care-giving or security jobs, these can be very tasking and degrading but at the same time immigrants are seeking these jobs for survival.


“My opinion is that if you find life tough abroad then go back home and hustle.”


Similarly, politicians from France, Germany, Belgium, among others have expressed concern over the EU’s economy and future without Britain.


Some anti- immigration politicians in Europe have lauded the move and recommended the same step for their countries.


The Brexit referendum which held on Thursday was described by UK authorities as historic with a record number of more than 30 million voters -the highest turnout at a UK election since 1992 – participating.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
