‘We Are Not Lazy’ – Nigerian Youths Reply Buhari (#NigerianYouthsAreNotLazy)


There have been reactions in various social media platforms to comments by President Muhammadu Buhari, criticising youths in the country at a Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, the United Kingdom.

In the video from The Cable, President Buhari said many of the youths below the age of 30 are uneducated, but they are waiting for everything to be done for them, just because Nigeria is an oil-rich country.

Speaking to Channels Television on today – Thursday, the president’s spokesman Mr Femi Adesina explained that President Buhari was referring to some, and not all the young people in the country.

However, many of the reactions have been critical of the President’s comments, some of whom accused him of describing the youths as lazy and being humorous with national pride.
