PRESIDENT BUHARI’S SPEECH: A juggernaut for the youths.
Laziness is not liking to work hard or to be active; Marriam – Webster dictionary. It is a negative spirit instigating human into undevelopment, financial and economical destabilization in the society.
President Buhari making a disclosure at the Commonwealth Business Forum that the Nigerian youths are lazy is an unforseen bang on Nigeria. Hearing this, I thought within myself: is this true? Knowing fully well that youths in my society are relentlessly, persistently, profusely working towards the betterment and development of this nation.
Seeking for a valuable answer from the citizens(old and young), I was made to answer questions like : What will you call a leader whose ethnic group are nomads? What do you think of a leader whose ethnical profession is majorly cattle rearing(herdsmen)? What do you suppose will be of a leader whose culture does not give room for Western Education?. These questions already gave me the answer I needed that not all Nigerian youths are lazy but the part which this leader originated from.
However, I want you to know that the president’s speech isn’t enough reason to discourage us from our relentless effort towards the development of this country because I believe he made that speech based on his mentality about his ethnic.
Finally, let this be known that though we’re referred to as the leaders of tomorrow but being treated like the toddlers of the past. We the youths shouldn’t give up our future to a destabilized country rather tenaciously seek for a beautiful country ahead of the coming generation.
