10.06.2021 news Buhari Warns Youths: You May Have a Good Degree but Die Without a Job

Published 10th Jun, 2021


President Muhammadu Buhari has warned Nigerian youths that they may have a good degree yet “die without having a job” unless they “behave themselves”.

Buhari said this on Thursday when asked during an Arise TV interview what he was doing to improve foreign direct investments in the country.

In his answer, he recalled how the #EndSARS protests driven by young people rendered the country insecure for investors. He therefore warned that no investor will show up in an insecure country, which will spell doom for even the country’s brightest brains.

“Well, the question was answered when there was #EndSARS,” the President began.

“You remember the young people, who wanted to march here and remove me. My answer to that, I got the members of the Executive Council and said each one should go to his state, speak to the Governor, speak to the traditional leaders, speak to the business people, and speak to especially the youths and tell them that there’s no more vacancy in the Federal Government.”

Continuing, he said: “Go to any governor now and ask him to give you contract or to give you a job, he will tell you there is no vacancy. The same thing with the local governments. So, you may have a good degree, but you may die without having a job.

“Why? Because nobody is going to invest in an insecure environment. So I told them to tell the youth that if they want jobs, they will behave themselves, make sure Nigeria is secure, so people can come and invest.

“Look at the 200 buses bought by the former governor of Lagos, some of these boys went and burnt the vehicles. Who will go and invest their money in an unstable environment? Nobody will. It’s just common sense. So you behave yourself, you make Nigeria secure, and people will invest.”

Buhari was also asked during the interview when he would lift the controversial suspension on the operations of Twitter in Nigeria. His answer: “Twitter? That I’ll keep to myself.”
