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.”
