Buhari is right to call Nigerian youth lazy- Femi Adesina

At the Commonwealth Business Forum in London on Wednesday,
18, 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari gave a keynote
address on Making Business Easier Between Commonwealth
. The presentation was followed by a discussion, and
question and answer .

Responding to a question, President Buhari had cause to talk about
some Nigerian youths, and he said: ” We have a very young
population; our population is estimated conservatively to be 180
. More than 60 per cent of the population is below the age of
30. A lot of them have not been to school and they are
that Nigeria has been an oil producing , therefore they
should sit and do nothing and get , healthcare and

Typical of their stock in trade, manipulators and twisters of
statements of Mr President, who lie in wait to make mischief,
interpreted the comment to mean that President Buhari had taken
all Nigerian youths to the cleaners. But elementary English
recognizes a wide gulf between “a lot of” and the word “all.” How
can “a lot of them,” suddenly transmogrify to mean “all of them?”
Mischievous and unconscionable!

There is no way President Buhari, father of the Nigerian nation in
every of the word, who equally has biological children of his
own in the youths age bracket, pass a vote of no confidence on all
youths. It can only exist in the imagination of those who play what
the President has described as “irresponsible politics” with

President Buhari has always applauded and Nigerian
youths who excel in different areas of endeavour, from sports, to
academia, and other realms. And he will continue to do so,
because he values the youths, and knows that they are the fulcrum
on which the of the country rests.

Indeed, every country has its of idle population, and it is the
bounden duty of government at all levels, to create an
for them to actualize their potentials. That is what
President Buhari is committed to doing.

The focal areas of the administration; the country,
reviving the , and fighting , are actually intended
to give youths a future and a hope. This much was emphasized in
an 5, 2018 comment by President Buhari, while receiving
Letter of Credence from the Head of Delegation of the
Union to Nigeria, when he said: ” Our insistence on probity is to
encourage to be accountable, and accept honesty as a
lifestyle so as to secure the future of our youths.’’ The President
also said more than 60 percent of Nigerians fall into the age
of youths and deserve to inherit a stable and prosperous
country that they can be of, adding that the government will
work assiduously to prevent waste and the depletion of
by corrupt Nigerians.

It is futile for mischief makers to lie in wait, and take a minor part
of the of the President, and turn it into negative
commentary, peradventure they could diminish the profile of the
President. Nigerians across all of life know who is serving
them faithfully and truly, and they will always reciprocate such
fidelity as occasions demand.
