“ I wonder how a government that has employed 100 ,000 unemployed graduates and also feeds about 7 . 5 million people daily could be tagged anti- youth.

Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture ,  says President Muhammadu Buhari loves and has  concern for Nigerian youths, which is different from the critics points of views.


This statement was made on Friday in Abeokuta, Ogun State during an interview with the press at the ongoing African Drum Festival .
The minister however, countered reports quoting President Buhari as describing all Nigerian youths as lazy and always waiting for free things .
He said the Buhari's administration has spent so much on youth development programmes.

He said and we quote:
 “ Some people have just made it their full -time job these days to scrutinise and twist whatever the President says out of context .
“ I wonder how a government that has employed 100 ,000 unemployed graduates and also feeds about 7 . 5 million people daily could be tagged anti- youth.


“ Our social investment programmes have continued to generate jobs and create opportunities for our teeming youths while our empowerment programmes have been providing soft loans to over 400 , 000 youths .

“ Millions of families and individuals have also continued to benefit from our Conditional Cash Transfer initiative .

“ This is a government that is so concerned and passionate about youth development and it is not right for people to begin to quote Mr . President out of context and thereby incite the youths against the government .”
