Muhammadu Buhari: A lot of Nigerian youths haven’t been to school — They want to sit and do nothing
President Muhammadu Buhari says many Nigerian youths just want to sit down and do nothing, banking on the notion that Nigerian is an oil-rich nation.
Speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster on Wednesday, the president said a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school and they want everything free.
“About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one,” Buhari said.
“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free.”
According to president , he has done well on the three cardinal points of his campaign, including economy and security.
“Recently, my minister for information was constrained to answer a question on people accusing this administration of doing nothing, he said:
let Nigerians be reminded what position we were before May 2015, what condition we are now, and what we have achieved between then.
