Jonglei State Governor, Philip Aguer Panyang has said that South Sudanese living in Diaspora have expressed readiness to return home.

He made the statement in Juba on Saturday during his welcoming ceremony in Juba upon arrival from the United States.

Aguer said during his visit to the US, those in Diaspora made demands for peaceful implementation of the recently signed agreement before they would come home.

“It was a good visit because I interacted with all South Sudanese and those who hailed from Jonglei state. They were willing to come back home to support the community,” he said.

However, Governor Aguer said he urged them to come home with developmental skills to promote the private sector in the country.

“We discussed issues related to development, peace and the resettlement of Jonglei displaced persons so that they would start rebuilding their lives,” he said.

Aguer remarked that his visit to the US was meaningful and significant saying the people he met were expressing readiness to come home.

He said the Diasporas had welcomed the recently signed peace deal.

Governor Philip Aguer left for US late in August following an invitation by Jonglei community in the US.
