The Governor of Kaduna State, Aminu Bello Masari has publicly blamed Nigeria’s high unemployment rate on the youth.
On Thursday night, during an appearance on Channels TV, an enraged Governor revealed that Nigerian youths are unwilling to work, which is why they are generally unemployed.
In his words, he said:
“People tend to say there is no work. Who told you there is no work? There is work to a willing mind. Because people feel when they go to university, the society owes them a living, while it should be the reverse.”
“What are you doing with the education you acquire to help change yourself, your community, change your family, change the society? What are you doing about it? Are you waiting for a paid job of N50,000 or N60,000? We have to sit up.”
