We are not lazy, Nigerian youths reply Buhari

Nigerians have taken to the social media to counter the statement made by President Buhari on Wednesday who accused youths of loving freebies above hard work.

Some youths accused the president of passing on the blame as usual, while others gave instances of their colleagues doing well without government support.

They also urged the president to fulfil his campaign promise to create jobs.

President Buhari at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminister on Wednesday said, “We have a very young population and our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. The 60 per cent of the population is below the age of 30. A lot of them have not been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria has been an oil producing country and therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare and education free,”

    Not minding that there is lack of job in the country for youths,we still strive everyday to survive without the government support,it is a fallacy to accuse the youths of laziness while he sits back and watches his government officials loot the resources that would rather be used to better the country and that of the youths.
