President Buhari has insinuated that Nigerian youths don’t want to work as
they rely on the oil-producing capability of the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday lambasted Nigerian youths in London.
Buhari said most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything.
Speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster,
Buhari said youths prefer to do nothing because they feel Nigeria is an oil-rich nation.
According to Buhari, a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school,
yet they want everything free.
He said, “About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is
estimated conservatively to be 180 million.
This is a very conservative one.
“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30,
a lot of them haven’t been to school and
they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country,
therefore, they should sit and do nothing,
and get housing, healthcare, education for free.”
