President Buhari while speaking at the Common Wealth Business forum has said Nigerian youth wants to sit and do nothing. The cable reports. The forum is part of the ongoing Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM) being held in the UK. Buhari discussed the Nigerian economy he Said;
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’re claiming Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, education and healthcare free.
Recently my minister for education was constrained to answer a question on people accusing the adminstration of doing nothing, he said “Let Nigeria be reminded of what position we were before May 2015, what condition we are now and what we have achieved between then and now and I think people were impressed by the answer.
For security, we have done well, Economy we are doing well, especially with Agriculture; we are providing soft loans, and guarantee is that you have to belong to a locality  and you have got a land, you don’t have to go to the bank to get physical collateral, i think a lot is being done.
