Buhari didn't deride Nigerian youths - Presidency

Buhari didn't deride Nigerian youths - Presidency

The statement reads in part: "How can President Buhari describe Nigerian youths as lazy, when they have proven, without doubt, to be one of the most industrious sets of individuals across the world? A lot of them have not been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria has been an oil producing country, therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare and education free", he had said.

He said that, at such a stage, it is expected of the president to use the opportunity to woo investors, clearly stating that our youths are equipped with skills that can help them make the best out of their investment but instead, our president made a decision to take a swipe at our young and vibrant population.

Olayinka who finds the President's comment embarrassing, took to Facebook to narrate how he had struggled to become what he is today and Buhari should stop insulting him if he could not appreciate his struggle. How can "a lot of them", suddenly transmogrify to mean "all of them?"

Ikubese challenged Nigerian youths to vote out those he called, "old brigades", adding as a youth he is not averse to hard work. It can only exist in the imagination of those who play what the President has described as "irresponsible politics" with everything.

"I will never refer to Nigeria's youths as people who sit and do nothing".

Among prominent Nigerians who have either attacked on disagreed with Buhari on the vexed issue include former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose and erstwhile Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, among others.

TheNewsGuru reports President Buhari had had a meeting with Shell, where chief executive officer of the multinational oil firm, Ben van Beurden, confirmed the investment intentions to the President before he set out for the Business Forum. "Nigerians across all walks of life know who is serving them faithfully and truly, and they will always reciprocate such fidelity as occasions demand".
