Buhari Changes His Position On 'Nigerian Youths'... Says They Are "Intellectually Aggressive"

President Muhammadu Buhari has described Nigerians as being among the most intellectually aggressive people in the world.

This is the second time the president is talking about Nigerian youths outside the shores of the country. The first time, he caused an uproar when he described some of Nigerian youths as lazy.
The President gave this new statement this Sunday in Rabat, Morocco where he travelled for a two-day working visit. The President during the trip held closed-door meetings with the Moroccan King, His Majesty King Mohammed VI.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, President Buhari also said that Nigerians were very economically ambitious.

The President told his host that the strongest selling point of Nigeria remained an “intellectually aggressive and economically ambitious’’ population.

He said most Nigerians have always sought self-improvement and self-actualization in any part of the world they find themselves.

President Buhari said Nigeria’s “visionary and resilient population’’ works hard to always position the country for more growth, fuelled by a largely youthful group that continually wants to contribute to development.
