She made this statement while speaking at a Lagos Television programme yesterday, Tinubu said her New Era Foundation Patience Home had concluded plans to empower youths in her senatorial district.
She was quoted to have said most of the youths in Lagos would come to her husband’s house, claiming “they want to enjoy Asiwaju’s money.”
She, however, expressed displeasure that “most of these youths don’t want to work”, adding that “the moment you give them work to do, they fall sick.” Tinubu added that youths of nowadays are interested in making quick money, “but they don’t want to work before making the money. Our youths are very rude because they want to be like all those people abroad.”
