Describes It As A Social Media Outrage By Nigerian Youth.
When President Muhammadu Buhari spoke at a forum during the Commonwealth summit, where he said many youth in Nigeria prefer to sit and do nothing, yet expect to get everything free because their country is an oil producing nation, He apparently did not anticipate the backlash he would receive.
Immediately the President proclaimed this, Nigeria youth busted into an outrage, created a hashtag “#LazyNigerianYouth” which saw a lot of tweets and retweets.
The latest however, is the creation of a Wikipedia page tagged: “Lazy Nigerian Youths”. Wikipedia described it as a social media outrage by Nigerian youth.
“The Lazy Nigerian Youths (Also known as “#LazyNigerianYouth” or simply “#LazyYouth”) is a social media revolt by Nigerian youths against their President, Muhammadu Buhari,” read the information on the page.
“While speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster in April Buhari said a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school and they want everything free because the country is an oil-producing state.  But the Nigerian youths will not have any of it as they soon took to social media to protest against the comment of the number one citizen of the country.
Wikipedia said the controversy had been received in different ways, with some using it as a business opportunity.
