Lagos State lawmaker Mojisola Alli-Macaule, has stated that Nigerian youths are high on drugs most of the time.
While speaking at the Lagos State House of Assembly, the lawmaker said that the rate of unemployment is not the reason why Nigerian youths misbehave.
According to the viral video released from the House of Assembly to the public, Ali-Macaule said that most Nigerian youths are often high on drugs.
She also said the youths do all sorts of things on social media. She also advised Nigerian graduates to learn a trade or become a tailer.
“Look at the children these days. The youths. I like your submission Mr Speaker that it is not unemployment that should be the bane or the reason why youths will come out and misbehave.
“There are unemployment in so many countries of the world, even in the United States. I schooled in the UK and I saw a lot of young people who were not employed but they didn’t become hoodlums. Why can’t we look inwards and look for solutions to our problems. Why can’t young people look within themselves, look for their talents.”
“Even as graduates, what stops you from becoming a designer or a professional tiler?”
“There is no excuse for being a hoodlum.”
“I think it’s about time that the National Orientation Agency needs to set to work. We need to begin to orientate our young people. They need people who can talk to them from time to time.”
“They are high on drugs most of the time, most of them. They go to social media, they do all sorts of things.” — she said.
