In the video, President Buhari was seen describing the average Nigerian youth as uneducated and unwilling to work.
This had infuriated Nigerians not to talk of how the opposition who quickly jumped on the statement and remarks of the President.
In response, Femi Adesina the Special adviser to the president on media and publicity has released a statement on behalf of the President.
In his statement which Nigerians see as a “failed damage control”, Femi Adesina stated that the president was referring to ‘Some’ youths and not ‘All’ youths.
“How can ‘A lot of’ them suddenly transmorify to mean ‘All of them’?” The statement reads.
According to Adesina, there is a tendency to twist and slant every word the president says in the negative all in a bid to demean and demonize him and also make him unappealing to the electorate.
