President Buhari said this while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster yesterday April 18th, 2018.
Fayose, a critic of President Buhari and member of the opposing People’s Democratic Party took to Twitter to make the statement below:
“At 19, President Buhari left Secondary School to join the Army. At age 21, he was commissioned a second lieutenant and appointed Platoon Commander of the Second Infantry Battalion in Abeokuta, Nigeria where can out youths get such opportunitu today.
“Nigeria youths are hardworking, intelligent and entreprising. Their future was mortgaged by past leader like President Buhari, who had everything at their beck and call as youths. I imagine the youths of today having half of the opportunities available in the 50s and 60s.”
