(a must-read by every intelligent youth )

Speaking at the Common Wealth Business Forum
in Westminster on April 18, 2018, Buhari said :
“Nigerian youths are lazy, uneducated; and don’t
like to do any work because they believe their
country is an oil-rich nation, thus always wanting
free oil money ”
NIGERIAN YOUTH : Sir, you are absolutely
correct. One of the lazy Nigerian youths who is
enjoying free oil money had an accident with the
power bike he bought with free oil money not too
long ago, and he was flown abroad for treatment
with free oil money, then he hired a jet with free
oil money from London to Abuja after his
Sir, we Nigerian Youth completely agree with you
that the Nigerian youths are lazy and uneducated
and always wanting free oil money. Their role
models are in Aso Rock enjoying free oil money
without even solving any security or economic
problem for the country. When they are ill, they
fly abroad for medical vacation with free oil

Why would anyone disagree with you that the
Nigerian youths are uneducated? It’s very
obvious. That’s why they don’t even know their
rights !! Some of them ignorantly keep defending
your ineptitude !!!
Sir, at 19 years of age, you left secondary school
to join the Nigerian Army. At age 21, you were
commissioned a second lieutenant and appointed
Platoon Commander of the Second Infantry
Battalion in Abeokuta, Nigeria. Where can our
youths get such opportunity today ?
You enjoyed free education as a young man, but
today the youths are deprived of basic
education. You were a governor, a petroleum
commissioner and a Head of State as a youth;
but today, youths are on social media defending
your failures !
Honestly, sir, we agree with you that the Nigerian
youths are lazy. That’s why you ruled Nigeria as
a youth and have also grabbed the job as an old
The youths are too ignorant to even know
the implication of this your comment, because
some indolent ones would still rationalize it as an
“ordinary” comment, forgetting that ‘out of the
abundance of the mind, the mouth speaks’. They
don’t even know that you and your fellow old
men are presently doing the jobs that the youths
should, ordinarily, be doing !
Sir, the most interesting aspect of this your
“truth” is that you said it in a country where their
government provides basic infrastructures,
almost free education, free WiFi, free health
care, almost free investment loans for their
youths. While, in your own country, these lazy
and uneducated youths, provide their own
electricity, schools, security, roads, healthcare
etc.. Yet, the indolent youths use their “free oil
money” to buy mobile data to defend your
Sir, let us remind you that we have seen so many
Nigerian youths who were almost useless in
Nigeria, but when they cross over to the western
world, they suddenly begin to excel in different
fields of endeavor. What do you think is
responsible for their positive output in the foreign
land? Your guess is as good as ours. Sir- the
difference is not far-fetched : A responsible
government usually plan for their youths and
create enabling environment for the youths to be
able to create wealth and contribute to National
development. Can we say the same of your own
government ? Certainly Not ! Instead, we have
lazy, uneducated youths who would hang on
telecommunication masts and electric cables to
shout “SAI BABA” whenever you visit their
states. SHAME ! We only wish they knew better.
Finally, sir, let us ask you this : Apart from the
free oil money this country has been paying you
since your days as a youth till date, what have
you been able to create for yourself ? Do you
have thriving businesses that are providing
employment for the Nigerian youths? Have you
invented anything on your own? Sir, you can now
see that this free oil money is what has kept you
going for over 50 years. Perhaps this laziness is
not limited to the youths alone. We guess some
75-year-old incompetent presidents are also lazy
and love free oil money; and that’s why they
want to remain in power till they are 80 years
old. If we take away the free oil money this
country has been paying you so that you then
appraise your life, are you sure you will have any
worth, sir?
We leave you to your conscience, Sir.
But, we hope that all intelligent Nigerian youths
will realise that you are now using their time,
after you had long-ago used your own time.
We hope that all intelligent Nigerian youths will
stop being “lazy” and join hands, to take charge
of their own destiny.
We equally hope that Nigerian youths will get
their Permanent Voter’s Card ready, and give you
appropriate response in 2019.
