Buhari’s Unfair Dissing of Nigerian Youth, By Farooq Kperogi

Please follow and like us:

Buhari supervises a government that serially engages in secretive, illegal employment of the children and relatives of high-ranking political elites (including his) in well-oiled, high-paying government agencies while millions of brilliant, hardworking but underprivileged young people vegetate in agonizing misery, yet he goes to London and calls young Nigerians lazy, uneducated, and entitled; as people who want to “sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free.”

These are not the young people I see when I travel to Nigeria. They are not the young people I interact with on social media. Maybe Buhari is describing his children–and himself.

If he insists he is describing “most” Nigerian youth, then his disconnect from reality is more severe than we had previously imagined.
