Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, has argued that Nigerian youngsters are the creators of their own issues, citing unemployment and other crises.
The human rights lawyer bemoaned the kids’ lack of togetherness and contentment, advising them to “use their resources in attempting to come together.”
In a verified Twitter account, Fani-Kayode made the statement on Monday.
He described how some young people turned nefarious when he tried to assist them in finding work.
The tweet reads, “I am convinced that this generation of Nigerian youths are their own worst enemies. It is pitiful.
“They need to spend their resources & energy into trying to come together rather than to undermine & denigrate one another.Some of the things I have seen and heard are shocking.
“We had slots for three jobs for youths. 200 graduates applied for those three jobs. After 50 were shortlisted 10 were chosen for interviews.
‘’They all came. Two out of the 10 attempted to kill one another with poison in order to increase their chances of getting one of the three slots”.
