Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has continued his attack on President Muhammadu Buhari, over his comments on the youths in Nigeria.
Buhari, speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster on Wednesday , said youths prefer to do nothing because they feel Nigeria is an oil-rich nation.
According to the President, a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school, yet they want everything free.
In a series of tweets posted on his verified Twitter page on Friday, Fayose claimed Buhari got into the Army at 19 and became a Second Lieutenant without O’Level certificate.
“Under President Buhari; a man who got everything as a youth despite hisacademic limitations, farms are no longer safe for our youths who have taken to farming.They are being murdered by herdsmen and the President is looking the other way. Within 3 years, over 10m jobs lost!
“If Nigeria was without opportunities for the youths like this when President Buhari was a youth,he would have probably ended up as a local farmer,rearingcows in Daura. But he had opportunity of joining the army at 19 & becoming a 2nd Lieutenant at 21 without O’Level certificate,” the Governor wrote.
