Nigerians have taken to social media to react after President Buhari said his administration has invested heavily in youth development.
While declaring open the Commonwealth Youth and Students Summit in Abuja on Tuesday, May 9, the President said his administration has heavily invested in youth development, creating formidable platforms through which youths can hone their leadership skills.
The President who was represented by Prof. Ibrahim Gambari who is his Chief of Staff, said;
“I am very optimistic that with the breed of young people gathered here, actionable policy-decisions that will further enhance development and productivity of the youth will be reached for the Heads of Government of the Commonwealth to implement to further better the lots of young people of the Commonwealth.
The digital revolution is clearly upon us with the young ones leading the way in ICT, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, E-Commerce and the likes. Investments in building a digital economy must proceed along with investment in the ideas, skills and enterprise of our youth.”
Nigerians took to Twitter to react. They expressed doubt at his claim that this administration has invested heavily in their development.
