Nigerian Youths Are Uneducated & Not Ready To Work, They Like Freebies, Says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said many Nigerian youths like free things based on the notion that Nigeria is an oil-rich nation.

According to The Cable, President Buhari made this assertion while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster.

President Buhari  said many Nigerian youths are uneducated, not ready to work and dependent on revenue from oil to survive.

He said the youths, who make up 60 per cent of the population, were waiting to get social amenities free without doing anything.

The President spoke on Wednesday during a panel discussion at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, London.

The moderator had asked Buhari to give his final thoughts on the issues discussed.

The President said he had fulfilled his campaign promises by improving on the nation’s security and the economy.

Buhari, while giving his administration a pass mark in security, said the government had been able to decimate the Boko Haram sect, whose activities, he said, had damaged the education and health infrastructures.

“And then the economy. We have a very young population and our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. The 60 per cent 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,” he added.
