Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Thursday reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s remark that Northern youths are uneducated and are school dropouts.
Buhari had stated this in an interview with the Voice of America Hausa service, in Washington, United States on Tuesday.
The President had said, “You know they say we are over 180 to 200 million people in Nigeria and 60% are the youth below the age of 30.
“In the North for instance, most have not attended school or they abandoned halfway.”
Reacting to the remark, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, urged Northern youths to respond to the comment.
He wrote: “Nigerian youths are lazy, uneducated and don’t like to do any work – @MBuhari, April, 2018.
“Most northern youths are uneducated school dropouts – @MBuhari, May 2018.
“Nigerian youths and northern youths: over to you!”
