'Hungry Nigerians Are Lazy' - Customs DG
Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service Hameed Ali says only lazy Nigerians can be hungry.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari had done so much for agriculture that farmers are now rich.
Ali said this at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Tuesday when he led members of the Buhari Support Organization to a meeting with President Buhari.
According to him, manna does not fall from heaven, hence the lazy must be hungry.
"People say we are hungry.
"Of course, the lazy must be hungry because if you do not work hard, manna doesn’t fall from heaven.
"So, when people say we're hungry. There was never a time in Nigeria that food is dropped in the mouth of the people.
"Those complaining of hunger are lazy.
Ali said his group is solidly in support of Buhari's second term bid because of his integrity, honesty and love for the nation.
"I've said it and I'll repeat it here Mr. President with all due respect, at 70 plus, with good retirement benefits and with your house in Daura, if I were you, I'd see no reason to be in this arena.
"But why are you here? It's because you love this great country.
"You left your comfort to serve Nigeria and that's why for those of us who love you for who you're said we must follow you and ensure that your second term in this country becomes a reality."
