A good leader should be a good motivator and encourager. He respect and stand by the side of those he leads.
But here in Nigeria the reverse is the case. Nigeria is being punished and lead by a leader who abuses those around him.
On Wednesday During a business conference in London , the United Kingdom , Buhari was quoted to have said that the youths “do nothing ” and want everything for “free ” in the oil -rich country .
“A lot of them ( Nigerian youths) haven ’ t been to school and they are claiming , you know , that Nigeria has been an oil – producing country therefore they should sit and do nothing and get housing, health care , education , free ,” Buhari allegedly said .
The above statement by mr president is a great insult to the youths of this country. On my own side I wasn’t surprise at all to hear such abusive comments from him. Yes, what do you expect from a leader who openly and international told the whole word that his wife belongs to the kitchen and other rooms.
What do you expect from a man who at the age of 70+ had only 2million naira in his bank account(both nationally and internationally)?
This same man had a son who many believed that out of his laziness, joblessness, love and dependence on oil money was busy ridding a bike worth about #500M and had an accident with it. Yet his father never had more than #2m in his bank account before becoming the president of this country.
What do you expect from a president whose WAEC Result and certificate passed through so many controversial remarks by Nigerians?
It breaks my heart that such comments came from a man whose way of life and biography can never be a motivation and inspiration to any meaningful Nigerian youth who dreams of becoming an entrepreneur.
Assuming such comments came from persons like Prof Wole Soyinka,

From persons whose entrepreneurial skills and lives serves as role models and a source of motivation and inspiration to the youths of this nation, I wouldn’t feel bad, it would have called for sober reflection for all the youths in this country.
Yes I wouldn’t fail to say the truth. Mr president was right in his own part, yes because he knows that he has failed the youths yet he is being surrounded by most youths who are academically Kwashiorkored and at the same time suffers from cancer of the brain and the mouth.
Yes he is being surrounded by jobless and lazy youths those that trekked for him and sing his praises only to get some percentage of the so called oil money from him.
Our Nigerian youths are strong and vibrant, go out side the shores of this country ,you will see how successful they are, just because the policies of the governments of the countries they are into favours them, unlike the one we have here in Nigeria.
To you the youths are lazy just because the commissioners and minster of youth are men of about 60years and above which should not be the way it is.
The youths of this country needs special attention.
Believe me when you pay attention to the youths of this country you are at the same time paying attention to the future of this county.
This is a wake up call for all youths in Nigeria
Nigerian youths are lazy because they didn’t demand for what rightly belongs to them .
Nigerian youths are lazy because they allowed themselves to be ruled by a 73years old man.
