President Buhari- Nigerian Youths are Lazy
A statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari to the effect that Nigerian youths are lazy has elicited angry reactions from eminent citizens and groups across the country.During a business conference in London, the United Kingdom on Wednesday, Buhari was quoted to have said that the youths “do nothing” and want everything for “free” in the oil-rich country.
“A lot of them (Nigerian youths) haven’t been to school and they are claiming, you know, that Nigeria has been an oil-producing country therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, health care, education, free,” Buhari allegedly said.
In reaction, Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose called on the youths to show Buhari that they were not lazy and uneducated by voting against him in 2019. He said it was painful that the president could describe youths in Nigeria that were daily struggling to make a living under a harsh economy as lazy people.
