APC’s Trading Blames Game: We Are Not Lazy, Nigerian Youths Reply Buhari
Millions of Nigerian youths took to social media platforms on Thursday to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari over a disparaging statement made against them.
The social media platforms, including twitter, facebook and Instagram were agog with comments from youths who described the president as “Buck Passer”.
The youths said that the present administration led by Buhari has been trading blames with past administrations since it came on board instead of providing jobs for the teeming population of youths who are willing to work.
Some of the youths said that they had acquired the little they had through hard work without the assistance of the government but instead of being commended, the president went to the public to dent their image.
President Buhari had said at the Commonwealth Business Forum that a lot of Nigerian youths are lazy and preferred to sit down to get everything free.
Shortly after he made the statement, his words went viral. However, the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina had said that the president’s statement was being misinterpreted.
He said, “The president did mean that all Nigerian youths are lazy but a lot of them.”
