President Buhari has told protesting Nigerian youths that it is in their own interest to keep peace.
This came after he stated that his generation was in its last lap.
Buhari made this known as he received in audience the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, Nigeria’s former Minister of Environment.
He reminded the youths that his own generation was on the last lap and was exiting, told the youth that maintaining peace would be in their own ultimate interest.
“Our own generation is on the last lap, we are exiting, it is in the interest of the youths to keep the peace. They want jobs, infrastructure and development. I have sent a team led by the Chief of Staff (Professor Ibrahim Gambari) to go round the country, talk to traditional rulers, who will then talk to the youths. The views of the youths have been heard.”
The President in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, said that the current administration inherited severe infrastructural deficits, “and that is what we are fighting to correct. We can’t just sit, fold our hands, and do nothing. We are doing our best within the limits of resources.”
