Wife of national leader of the APC and Senator representing Lagos Central, Oluremi Tinubu, has accused Lagos youths of being lazy and not ready to work.
Mrs Tinubu made the assertions when she appeared as a guest on a Lagos Television programme monitored by our correspondent on Saturday, September 28.
According to her, most of the youths in Lagos would come to her husband’s house, claiming “they want to enjoy Asiwaju’s money.”
The visibly angry woman 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.”
The Senator insisted that “youths of nowadays are interested in making quick money, but they don’t want to work before making the money.”
The former Lagos first lady added, “our youths are very rude because they want to be like all those people abroad.”
When asked about her plans to assist the “lazy youths”, Mrs Tinubu said her New Era Foundation Patience Home had concluded plans to empower all youths in her senatorial district.
She disclosed that 10 youths each from all the local governments under her Lagos Central would benefit from the empowerment initiative.
Tinubu, however, enjoined youths in her constituency to contact their local government chairmen and avail themselves of the opportunities provided by the foundation.
