Nigerian youths are not lazy, says PDP

Nigerian youths are not lazy, says PDP

Meanwhile, Many of the reactions to the President's comments have been critical, some of whom accused him of describing the youths as lazy and being humourous with national pride.

But, National Secretary of YYSA, Comrade Olawale Ajao in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital while reacting to Buhari's outburst lamented that it is unfortunate that, "President Buhari is fond of giving a negative remark about Nigeria whenever he talks overseas".

The presidency has said the statement made by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, has been grossly misinterpreted by Nigerians.

Adesina attributed the outrage that trailed the President's comment to those he described as "manipulators and twisters" of Buhari's statements.

A statement by Presidential Spokesman Femi Adesina notes that the President could not have derided all Nigerian youths being the father of the nation who equally has children within the youth bracket.

Young Nigerians on social media are still very angry over Nigeria's President, Muhamadu Buhari's Comments in the United Kingdom where he said most Nigerian Youths are lazy, uneducated and want free money.

"But elementary English recognises a wide gulf between "a lot of" and the word "all". President Buhari has always applauded and celebrated Nigerian youths who excel in different areas of endeavour, from sports, to academia, and other realms.

"The president should simply withdraw the statement on the youths and apologise; and tell them what he will do for them in addition to what he had done for them", Sani wrote. "And he will continue to do so, because he values the youths, and knows that they are the fulcrum on which the future of the country rests", he said. He pointed out that the president in his speech was referringto "a lot of" and not "all" Nigerian youths. That is what President Buhari is committed to doing.

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, says it is important for the Federal Government to regconise the fact that the youths are the nation's greatest asset.
