President Buhari asks youths to behave themselves if they want jobs
President Muhammadu Buhari has knocked some state governors for sitting back and waiting for the federal government to help them tackle insecurity in their states.
The President in an interview with Arise TV on Thursday asked Governors having security issues in their states to sit up and handle the situation and not just sit back after winning elections and expect people to do their jobs for them.
He advised them to revert to the traditional ways of tackling insecurity by involving traditional institutions and community leaders that are very effective at the local level.
To the youths, he warned them to behave themselves and ensure the nation is secured if they want jobs in the country.
He blamed the #EndSARS protesters for the lack of investments and jobs in the country.
“About 200 buses bought by the former governor of Lagos were burnt by restive youths. Who would go and invest in such an environment? Nobody. It is just common sense.
”I told them to tell the youths if they want jobs they should behave themselves, make Nigeria secure so that people can come and invest. Nigeria is resourceful, everybody knows that God has really endowed us.”
