Well if the home were sweet, as those other developed countries, nobody need persuade anyone to come home. The issue at hand from my own perspective is beyond homecoming, it is about how to bring development to the African countries. How can we - those at home and those over there - contribute to the development of our motherland. I think this is the real issue. The issue of homecoming to me is a personal one. If anyone thinks that by coming home he/she will be able to contribute more to the development of the country - fine, and if it is otherwise it is still okay. All that is important is that our African countries need to be saved from underdevelopment.
