Reactions have trailed the comments made by President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerian youths are lazy and likes freebies.
The President on Wednesday, while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, said many Nigerian youths believe that it is their right to get everything free because Nigeria is an oil-rich nation.
However, many of the reactions on social media have been critical of the President’s comments, some of whom accused him of not been in tune with what the youths are up to in the country.

President Buhari doing what he knows how to do best.. Disgracing Nigerians since the days of John The Baptist.
This is what you get when you elect someone with a NEPA bill certificate. A mistake that needs to be corrected.
We are not #LazyNigerianYouths
