Buhari Clar­i­fies Lazy Niger­ian Youths Comment…Here What He Said On Youths In The North

While speak­ing dur­ing an inter­view with Voice of Amer­i­ca on Tues­day, Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari, again touched on the“une­d­u­cat­ed” youth, despite the out­rage gen­er­at­ed by his com­ment on young per­sons in the coun­try at a Com­mon­wealth­fo­rum in Lon­don some weeks ago.

Accord­ing to The­Ca­ble, while clar­i­fy­ing his com­ment on young per­sons in Lon­don, Pres­i­dent Buhari said most youth in the north are une­d­u­cat­ed or school dropouts, adding that the com­ment he made at the Com­mon­wealth forum was tak­en out of con­text.
He told VOA“You know Nigeria’s pop­u­la­tion is now between 180 and 190 mil­lion and 60 per cent of this pop­u­la­tion is youth that is 30 years down ward.

“You know in the north most youths are une­d­u­cat­ed or school dropouts. If not because we had good har­vests in the last two farm­ing sea­sons, the sit­u­a­tion would have dete­ri­o­rat­ed.

“These youths even if they trav­el out of the north for green­er pas­ture they hard­ly make it eco­nom­i­cal­ly because what they earn as income can­not afford them to meet their basic needs or return home.

“All these expla­na­tions I made, they refused to high­light them in their report and you know the media in Nige­ria in most cas­es only do what they like.”
