Yes. It is very true that most Nigerian youths are lazy. The youths keep using "there is no job in Nigeria" as a means to engage in crime. If there is no job you should create one for yourself. No matter how many jobs the government creates,not every youth will still put his or her mind to go work,be looking for quick money

Nigeria youth are nt lazy, youth are really trying their best to perform greater exploit but are short of resources to perform this task and most of this resources can only be provided by the government

I will urge the government to provide if not all basic resources needed and see if youth are still lazy or not

The problem I have with these politicians is that they do lose their mind whenever they are being interviewed outside the country and come back to their senses when they returned to the country. The President said the Nigeria youth are lazy, where are the jobs to do and a commission being controlled by our President claimed that the unemployment rate  is at an alarming rate

With the current obsession of the youth to get rich quick I guess one can say lazy but then the Nigerian youth is a very motivated human being and just needs the right motivations and guidance and opportunity to shine.

its not true because if he really knows what the youths are passing through, he won't be saying such. anyways, it doesnt meant that some part of us are not lazy, he shouldn't have used the habbit of some people to judge everyone saying "Nigerian Youths" which comprises everyone, he is supposed to be specific with his statement though.

Just as the saying always goes, to whom much is given much is expected, the government has a very big role to play in terms of job creation,  but that aside there are no resources that are available even when you decide to do things on your own, the government has failed to even make provision for basic social amenities. We lack them all, imagine running a business where electricity is required on a regular basis, the price of fuel is high and that alone will consume so much funds. This and much more that are expected to be provided freely by goverment are neglected, Nigeria has now turn to a country where everyone depends on generators for power supply and yet at the end of every month, bills will surely come to be paid.
