PDP Youths Vow To Retaliate 'Lazy Tag' With Their PVCs

"How can President Buhari describe Nigerian youths as lazy, when they have proven, without doubt, to be one of the most industrious sets of individuals across the world?"

He said: "Merchants of mischief have taken their antics against the first family further by creating a fake Facebook account in the name of Zahra, President Muhammadu Buhari's daughter".

It would be recalled that Buhari while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, was quoted as saying that most youths prefer to do nothing because they feel Nigeria is an oil-rich nation.

He said it was bad enough that the president spoke in an worldwide event where other nationalities were present, stressing that it was regrettable that the President would speak so of younger Nigerians who put their lives on the line to install the Buhari government.

In a video, the President had said that numerous youths below the age of 30 were uneducated, but waiting for everything to be done for them, just because Nigeria is an oil-rich country.

"But elementary English recognises a wide gulf between "a lot of" and the word "all".

Adesina said there is no way President Buhari, father of the Nigerian nation would pass a vote of no confidence on all youths.

"From the moment that statement was out, there have been a lot of complaints and grumbles from various people from my place, and they kept calling".

"It can only exist in the imagination of those who play what the President has described as "irresponsible politics" with everything". He pointed out that the president in his speech was referringto "a lot of" and not "all" Nigerian youths.

He urged Nigerians to forgive Buhari, rather than send him to the "political guillotine".

Insisting that every country has its share of idle population, which constitutes a huge burden on government at all levels, Femi said that President Buhari remains committed to youth development in Nigeria.

Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president and erstwhile Buhari ally, said he backed the young. "Nigerians across all walks of life know who is serving them faithfully and truly, and they will always reciprocate such fidelity as occasions demand", he added.
