#LazyNigerianYouths

Lazy Nigerian Youths got 2,510,000 Google search results within 0.31seconds at about 0500Hours on Thursday, April 26, 2018, making it the most trending issue since the beginning of the year.

The hashtag #LazyNigerianYouths dominated the social media after Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari made a comment at the 2018Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting which held in the United Kingdom.

“About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one.

“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free,” Buhari said when he’s asked why he didn’t sign the African Continental Free Trade Agreement in Rwanda.

The statement provoked the youths, who took to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to display what they’ve been doing for a living since they couldn’t find white collar job, exclusively meant for those who are close to political heavyweights in the country.

Lazy Nigerian Youths gets Wikipedia Page

Similarly, the social media rage has got a special page on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.LazyNigerianYouths-wikipedia-page

Buhari’s Lazy Nigerian Youths comment was first reported by Mayowa Tijani, the only Nigerian journalist allowed to attend the business forum.

Infobase notice that the page was last updated on April 25, 2018 at 22:31.

On the consequence of the comment, “Many Nigerian politicians and especially President Buhari’s political opponents have since capitalised on the social media backlash with many urging the youths who were instrumental to the president’s election to vote him out in the coming 2019 elections.

“At the time of the incident, CNN was of the opinion that the president would face a tough battle to get the support of the nation’s young people in his re-election bid,” Wikipedia writes.

The page makes the comment and its aftermath well documented.

It was initially thought that the president must have been misquoted, in fact Information minister Mr. Lai Muhammaed said his boss was “quoted of context” but video clip was released to clear the doubt.

Some people call it “demarketing” of Nigerian youths, which sparked display of their entrepreneurial skills.

Some fine artists and those who specialized in customised shirts storm the street with the harstag boldly written either at the front or back of the shirt.
