Meanwhile in Buhari’s words on Wednesday “About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one,”

“More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free.”

On the issue of economy and security Buhari had said  “For security, we have done quite well. Economy, we are doing very well, especially with agriculture; we are providing soft loans, and guarantee is that you have to belong to a certain locality and you have got land, you don’t have to go to the bank and need a physical collateral. I think a lot is being done.”

But some Nigerians have taken to twitter to say that he is wrong. see a tweet below
