See How Fayose Hopes Buhari Will Speak In U.S.
Few days after President Muhammadu Buhari travelled to the United Kingdom (UK) for the Commonwealth Leaders' meeting, he is in the United States of America to meet with President Donald Trump.
His visit to the UK brought mixed feelings, with Nigerian youths getting more of the cold chill as a result of President Buhari’s comment.
He had highlighted that a lot of Nigerian youths were not willing to work.
Several persons have expressed displeasure with the comment and Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State was one of them.
Now that the President is in the U.S. for the meeting that will hold on Monday, Governor Fayose is worried that President Buhari could say something that will not go down well with Nigerians again.
On his Twitter page on Sunday, he wrote: "This one that President Buhari is going to meet President Trump tomorrow, they should write a speech for him so that he won't go and say Nigerian youths are lazy again".

Some young prominent Nigerians dismissed President Buhari’s statement about youths’ unwillingness to work, insisting that they have worked too hard to the point that they deserve some accolades.
President Buhari was invited by President Trump and both leaders will have bilateral meeting and a working lunch on Monday April, 30.

At the meeting, they will discuss ways to enhance the strategic partnership between the two countries and to advance shared priorities, such as: promoting economic growth, fighting terrorism and other threats to peace and security.
The meeting will further deepen the US-Nigeria relationship, as the United States considers Nigeria’s economic growth, security and leadership in Africa to be critical aspects of their strategic partnership.
