Act responsibly and make Nigeria secure if you want jobs, President Buhari tells youths

Buhari approves process to replace retired Perm Secs


President, Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerian youths to act responsibly and make the country secure, if they want jobs.

This call was made by the president during an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.

When asked about his plans to bring direct investments into the country, President Buhari recalled what he told the national executive council after the #EndSARS protests, while noting how the protests made the country insecure for investors.

Buhari said no investor will invest in an insecure environment, adding that those with good degrees will die of hunger if there are no jobs.

The president made reference to the BRT buses that were razed by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protests in Lagos, saying investors will not invest in an unstable environment.

“Well, the question was answered when there was #EndSARS. You remember the ‘end’ people, who wanted to march here and remove me,” Buhari said.

“My answer to that, I got the members of the executive council and said each one should go to his state, speak to the governor, speak to the traditional leaders, speak to the business people, and speak to especially the youths and tell them that there’s no more vacancy in the federal government.

“Go to any governor now and ask him to give you contract or to give you a job, he’ll tell you there’s no vacancy. The same thing with the local government. So, you may have a good degree, but you may die without having a job. Why?

“Because nobody is going to invest in an insecure environment. So I told them to tell the youth that if they want jobs, they will behave themselves, make sure Nigeria is secure, so people can come and invest.

“Look at the 200 buses bought by the former governor of Lagos, some of these boys went and burnt the vehicles. Who will go and invest their money in an unstable environment? Nobody will.

“It’s just common sense. So you behave yourself, you make Nigeria secure, and people will invest.”
