He said “this statement coming from the President who should be a beacon of hope for the youths means that the youths are hopeless in this government. “I would rather advise the youths of this country irrespective of religious or party affiliations to rise up to this challenge and prove to the Buhari government that they are not lazy by voting out this administration in 2019” Sen. Anyanwu stated.
“A government that budgets less than ten percent of its annual budget to education cannot turn around and label its youths as been lazy, agovernment that cannot provide jobs for its teeming graduates cannot say that the youths are lazy, a government that cannot support its youths through interest free  loans to engage in sustainable businesses cannot call its youths lazy, a government that watches while its youths are gruesomely murdered on a daily basis have no
moral rights to call its youths lazy” he fumes.

narrative is most uncharitable to them” he said.
