A week after describing Nigerian youths as lazy, President Buhari in an interview with the Hausa version of the Voice of America VOA, disclosed that most of youths in the Northern region are uneducated or school dropouts.
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.
Northern youths, is this true?
