Following what became trending yesterday when President Buhari said ‘Nigerian Youth are lazy’ #lazynigerianyouths. Banky W who has also waded in to share his own thought based on what he feels, has told Nigerian youths to obtain their PVC, so they can send politicians running down the country away.
According to him, he reacted to President Buhari’s “sit and do nothing” comments that were targeted at Nigerian youths, disgruntled youths should forget about tweeting on Twitter to getting their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC). He further revealed tweets won’t be counted by INEC on the election day.
He wrote this on Instagram;
“Many young Nigerians have been tweeting non-stop with #LazyNigerianYouth and #LazyNigerianYouths to convey their displeasure at President Muhammadu Buhari’s remark.
“I have a suggestion. Whether you agree, or disagree with the President’s comments, this time, do a little bit more than posting, commenting, retweeting, and complaining. Go and register to vote.
“I’ve sat in countless meetings, seminars, conferences and hangouts with young people. We are always great at pointing out our issues.. but the truth is that we can sit around and complain from now until Kingdom come. It will not matter. INEC will not count your tweets. Let’s turn the month of May into #PVCMay.
“Even if you don’t know who you’re voting for.. even if you hate every single candidate. At least register.. so that if someone comes along who you feel compelled to support, you can.
“If you’re really serious about wanting Nigeria to be a better place, go and register to vote. Get your PVC asap. The registration period will end LONG before the elections come, so if you think you can wait until next year, you are wrong.
“Get your PVC today. Or don’t bother complaining about anything, because it won’t matter. Your tweets will not count. Your vote will.”
President Buhari has been slammed by Nigerian Youths based on his statement that he made while addressing the Commonwealth Business Forum in London, in which he was quoted saying “that most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything.”
Nigerian Youths are Lazy!
Nigerian youths are the most hard working youths I have ever seen. It is mostly in Nigeria that one sees the youths struggling on their own, and most times succeed without the help or assistance of their government. Take myself for instance, I have been a graduate since 2014, served since 2015, yet till now no government job. Since then till now, I have been struggling on my own to succeed without being involved in any illegal or criminal act. With my pen and paper, working with private organization where I earn undeserved insults and payment. Yet I still endured, determined and resolved to continue struggling, being committed and hard working until I make head way in life without denting my image, that of my family and the nation as a whole.
I believe and know that there are thousands and millions of youths like me, who are determined and are struggling to succeed without being involved in any form of crime. But it is heart breaking and killing to hear that our father, who we look up to and are still looking up to, said we are lazy.
