Lazy Youths: Buhari Should Apologize And Be Forgiven – Shehu Sani
By AGABA DANIEL -April 20, 2018




SHEHU Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to apologize over his remarks about Nigerian Youths.

While answering a question at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London on Wednesday, President Buhari had cause to talk about Nigerian youths.

Mr Buhari had described the youths as illiterates who are lazy and want freebies with the notion that the nation is an oil producing country.

He had said: “We have a very young population; our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. 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 claiming that Nigeria has been an oil producing country, therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare and education free.”

His comments sparked reactions from the country’s young population who lambasted the president over his comments on them.

Defending Buhari, the Presidency blamed those it called ‘statement twisters‘ as those who manipulated the president’s comments about the youths.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement denied the president disparaged Nigerian youths, adding that, “Elementary English recognizes a wide gulf between “a lot of” and the word “all.”

Adesina asked, “How can “a lot of them,” suddenly transmogrify to mean “all of them?”

But reacting, Sani described Adesina’s statement as absurd, noting that, “The President spin doctors are trying to spray fragrances on the feces and lace the dung with olive oil.”

The lawmaker advised Mr Buhari to withdraw and tender an apology to the country’s young population.

“The President should simply withdraw the statement on the youths and apologize; and tell them what he will do for them in addition to what he had done for them,” Sani said.

He said if the president apologizes, he should be forgiven because he is a Human. Sani challenged the youths to pick the baton and lead and stop holding the Alsatian Dogs of the political elite.

“The President is a human being, he can gaffe and should be forgiven and should not be sent to the political guillotine.

“The President echos the perception of the bourgeoisie power elites,the youths must rise against it.”

Adesina’s statement has also draw wide condemnation from the young people of the country.

The remarks of the presidential aide did not go down well with a Human Rights Activist, Inibehe Effiong, prompting him to describe the attempt by Adesina to defend his principal as ‘imbecilic.’

Effiong, 29, a legal practitioner who resides in Lagos said the President remarks about Nigerian youths amounts to irresponsible assertion of deficit in governance skills while describing him as one who has no integrity.

Buhari was talking about an entitlement mentality exhibited by people who do not want to go to school and believe they should get everything free, because Nigeria is an oil producing nation.
You will read any meaning into any thing because you have a biased mind.
How many percent of people refuse to pay taxes, rates and levis, because of this entitlement mentality.
Like I said, you can criticise the stage he said it on, but he was absolutely correct.

The stage is what we are angry about...

We know Northerners are Lazy and don't like going (no insult intended) and South easterners love Money more than their life... we know...

But don't go to UK, at the common wealth business submit... and talk filth about your people... if you don't have any good to say about Nigerians... shut up.

Buhari's problem has always been saying it as it is.
Thank God you say the stage is the problem, other people are outrightly twisting his word.

What is 60% of 180million, what is ten percent of that.

Mr man, incase you don't know over 5 million people below the age of 40 have no formal education, this is far more than some countries population and presents a very big problem.

That being said, half of Nigerian youths have no access to quality education and education aids. Our level of education is reflected in our society.

You are still not getting it.

As a President, You have a responsibility to market your people and nation to the world.

If he his honest, and believe that trash he said as the truth he should just resign.

Just like a cousin of mine that was employed as a marketer to sell something she did not believe in...She resigned.

How can a President come to the world and describe his people (using your own words) as people with entitlement mentality that have not been schooled...

And you think it's been blunt... being blunt is resigning.

I know you didn't hear 'lazy' but I'm sure you heard him say 'they sit and do nothing, expecting to get healthcare and the likes free'. Now when someone says a lot of people sit and do nothing while waiting for freebies, can u explain that phrase in one word?
