On of the contestants of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Tobi has reacted to the statement by the President on Nigerian youths being lazy, through his handler on Instagram. The response seems to be a perfect one as most of his followers supported his view on the issue.
President Buhari’s statement on Nigerian youths being lazy has attracted a lot of controversies in the past 48 hours after he made the statement while addressing an international delegate at a conference in the United Kingdom.
Sharing a photo collage of the contestant demonstrating his unique skills, Tobi wrote:
Nigerians are one of the most resourceful and hardworking people in the world. From generation to generation, this has remained true. Now more than ever, we have begun to see a new crop of Nigerians…”YOUNG NIGERIANS” who are achieving incredible feats and reshaping our story.
Whether home or abroad, we are pushing the boundaries and giving the world a reason to take us seriously. I am proud to be one of these “Young Nigerians” who wake up every morning and push to be better versions of themselves.
Like many of these “Young Nigerians”, I have pursued a number of things at the same time because I believe that within me lies the power to achieve great things and be unbound. I do these regardless of the lack of adequate empowerment and infrastructure.
My various endeavours haven’t come from a place of confusion or failure but from discovering my truest potential. I am a “Young Nigerian” … I am a Dreamer … I am a Doer ….I am not Lazy.
The President has however been urged to tender an apology to Nigerians.
Earlier this morning, popular activist and critic of the government, Reno Omokri stated that another housemate on the show Cee-C is better than the president simply because she tendered an apology after admitting wrong-doing.
