#LazyNigerianYouth: Young Nigerians Continue To Bash President Buhari Over UK Comments

By Chux Odoh

Young Nigerians on social media are still very angry over Nigeria’s President, Muhamadu Buhari’s Comments in the UK where he said most Nigerian Youths are lazy, uneducated and want free money.

This is even after media aide to the President, Mr Femi Adesina in a statement tried to put some clarity to the President’s statement saying that the President’s statement should not be taken out of context as it didn’t suggest that ALL Nigerian Youths were lazy.

Using the now trending hashtag #LazyNigerianYouth, young Nigerians, especially in the creative sector, have been airing their mind on the controversial statement which many believe portrays the Nigerian youth in a bad light, especially to foreign investors whom they are trying to engage to do business with.

These are some of the views of a cross-section of Nigerian youths on twitter:

Me in 2017.
A hard working Nigerian youth running for Governor, rejected all the money offered to me by various parties to step down, toured all nooks and crannies of Anambra State determined to secure a better future for the people.
We are not lazy!#LazyNigerianYouths pic.twitter.com/UzbyFVgYEK

My VC in school told us he went to school with 7 different scholarships in the University. I have uncles who were served FULL chicken as part of their meal while they were acquiring university education. My generation was given NOTHING by this country. But we are the lazy ones.
