#LazyNigeriaYouths: Social Media Set Ablaze Over Buhari's Comment
Baba seems to always find his mojo every time he is on foreign soil.
Mr President, has once again incurred the wrath of the youth after he referred to them as lazy and not ready to work.
"We have a very young population and our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. The 60% of the population is below the age of 30.
"A lot of them have not been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria has been an oil producing country and therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare and education free.”
Buhari said this at a Commonwealth Business Forum in London on Wednesday.
As expected, Nigerians particularly the younger generation did not take it with a pinch of salt.

I have been so lazy not to read the content of Mr. President speech today. So, I am yet to form an informed opinion about the matter. However, in the interim, I feel, he should be seen as being Nigeria's No.1 Image maker.#LazyYouth— Mr. Goronyo (@TahirGoronyo) April 18, 2018
1/2 Dear @MBuhari Majority of Nigerian youths are self employee without govt incentive, despite millions are graduates but the opportunity block by the elites, reserve white-collar jobs to ur children while thousands of #Lazyyouths are yearning to be enlisted in the military.— @muttaqa (@muttaka_hassan) April 18, 2018
#LazyNigerianYouths In a country where we practically provide everything for ourselves - from electricity to water and even security, our president told the world we are #lazy. Providence won't afford you a second opportunity to lie against us sir.— Emmanuel Olabayo (@bayonuels) April 19, 2018
"@Cordeliaokpei: Can our leaders show us where their children work? The '1st children' for instance, what work do they do? Where do they work? What have they contributed to Nigeria's growth or death? You call other people's children lazy? We refuse that label.#LazyNigerianYouths pic.twitter.com/MlHhthrln7— GIDITRAFFIC (@Gidi_Traffic) April 19, 2018
Buhari that didn't get an Education when It was free? Now calling us #LazyNigerianYouths when Education has become a luxury and getting a good paying job is now regarded as a miracle?— No one (@ilynem) April 19, 2018

I am a Nigerian youth and working very hard. I pay my bills and my taxes even when the government does little or nothing to provide basic amenities.— Oke Umurhohwo (@stalyf) April 19, 2018
