Youths are responsible for Nigeria’s high unemployment rate – Buhari

President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has attributed the nagging high rate of unemployment in the country to the feisty, demanding and pugnacious nature of youth in the country.

Buhari, who spoke during an interview on Arise TV on Thursday morning, averred that no investor can invest in a troubled and unpredictable environment, adding that the country is currently ravaged by insecurity.

Buhari admonished the youth to be good-natured and level-headed if they want jobs in the country, noting that their behavior and actions impacted the security of the country negatively.

Buhari lamented on the widespread violence in the country blaming the Endsars protesters for the lack of investments and jobs.

He said, ”I told them to tell the youths if they want jobs they should behave themselves, make Nigeria secure so that people can come and invest. Nigeria is resourceful, everybody knows that God has really endowed us.”

President Buhari lamenting on the Endsars protests which were hijacked by hoodlums to perpetrate violence, said,

“About 200 buses bought by the former governor of Lagos were burnt by restive youths. Who would go and invest in such an environment? Nobody! It is just common sense.”

He warned the youths to be of good conducts if they must get jobs in the country as only a peaceful nation would attract investors in the country.

“Youths should behave themselves, make Nigeria secure and they will get jobs because nobody can invest in an unsecured environment,” he said.
