Nigerians have taken to their Twitter handle to react after activist Deji Adeyanju labelled the youths of the country, not just lazy but ‘the most hopeless in the world.’
However, while some group agreed with his view, a larger percentage expressed their disagreement with him.
What Deji Adeyanju tweeted:
I want to apologize to President Buhari today for attacking him when he said Nigerian youths are lazy. Nigerian youths are not only lazy, they are the most hopeless youths in the world. They have no future and there’s no hope for them.

No matter what your reasons are for this tweet, I’ll definitely say you got it wrong this time. Just because we have a bad govt doesn’t make us hopeless, we have a future and there’s hope for us. You are not in the position to tell us our fate. This bad governance will pass

Come to Mile 12 and see youths laboring day and night to have just their daily bread. And they’re Nigerians! There numbers alone beat down any of those Big brother ‘lazy heads’ you saw.
