President Buhari a few days ago made a statement at the commonwealth, where he tagged Nigerian Youths as a Lazy Bunch who want free things.
This has so far caused uproar on Social media, with many youths trending the hashtag #LazyNigerianYouths, as they show off their handwork.
The picture of a lady, Kate Ogechukwu, a Second class Upper gradate of History and International Relations from Ebonyi state University who sells Charcoal for a living was shared…
Sharing the photo on Twitter, the caption reads: “Meet Kate Ogechukwu, a Second Class Upper graduate of History and International Relations from Ebonyi state university, decided to go into charcoal selling to make ends meet, due to lack of jobs”.
Another user on Twitter wrote; “I am a 2nd class upper graduate of Chemistry Science from University of Lagos. I am now a shoe make cos I couldn’t get a job, I am not lazy, I am not lazy I am not lazy. #LazyNigerianYouths.
Another Twitter user, a graduate and a tailor, @KuloDesigns, writes: “I am not lazy and I don’t want free anything. I make some of the best casuals and agbada on this side of the world. Order for one today. Delivery nationwide.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “I am Nigerian. I paint homes and offices for a living. @MBUHARI I am not lazy, we are not lazy!:”
@newscantell wrote: “You’d finish school with good grade in Nigeria but you don’t get to see jobs with good pay. You’d start up a business but the economy is too hard for you to succeed. You’d start making money but SARS will take you as a criminal. Nigerian youth are not lazy”.
Gbemi O, a media personality wrote: “I am an on-air personality, fashion entrepreneur, event MC, event coordinator, media consultant + part time actress, inferencer and the list goes on. I’ve never had only one job! Even during NYSC, I had two jobs!!”
Emmanuel Chibuzor Okeke, a graduate of Plateau State Polytechnic has counted himself out from those President Buhari refers to as ‘lazy’
He shared photos of the pastries he makes, including Chin-chin and wrote:
“Mr President, My name is Emmanuel Chibuzor Okeke and I’m Not a Lazy person. I’ve handwork. M-H-M. Muscle Hustle Money”
