Lazy Nigerian youths: ADP attacks Buhari


The Action Democratic Party, ADP, has told President Muhammadu that Nigerian youths are actually the most industrious in the world.

While delivering a keynote address at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari was quoted to have said that most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything.

The Presidency, through the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has since clarified what Buhari actually said.

Reacting in a statement made available to DAILY POST by its Publicity Secretary in Lagos, Prince Adelaja Adeoye, the party said that it was “shocked that a president of a country can make such derogatory remarks about his fellow citizens; citizens that he swore an oath to make lives better for.

“At such a stage, it is expected of the president to use the opportunity to woo investors, clearly stating that our youths are equipped with skills that can help them make the best out of their investment but instead, our president decided to take a swipe at our young and vibrant population.

“A country is assessed not by their old men but by their youths who are the strength and the builders of the said country.”

ADP added “A man who has supervised the loss of over 10 million jobs since 2015, the comments are even more insulting.”

“I have never seen any group of people anywhere in the world more determined to make it against all odds than our youths.

“The ADP says that it is proud of the Nigerian youth and what they have been able to achieve thus far even without the least support from government noting that Nigerian youths are shining examples all over Africa and the world.

“The party says that it is proud of the exploits of the Nigerian youths in business, showbiz, entertainment, sports, education, music and every other sector where they have held their own.

“The party says that this is why their focus is on the Nigerian youths who are the actual builders of any society. The party urges the youths in Nigeria to continue to shine in every field of their endeavour even as they register to get their PVCs to be able to vote in youth friendly leaders in the coming elections.”
