Recall that Mr Buhari, while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster on Wednesday, had stated that youths prefer to do nothing because they feel Nigeria is an oil-rich nation. This much was emphasized in an April 5, 2018 comment by President Buhari, while receiving Letter of Credence from the Head of Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria, when he said: 'Our insistence on probity is to encourage people to be accountable, and accept honesty as a lifestyle so as to secure the future of our youths'.

Despite the uproar, Buhari's comments are unlikely to play any serious role at the presidential polls next year, political analyst Saheed Animashaun said. The president is a human being, he can gaffe and should be forgiven and should not be sent to the political guillotine.

Adesina concluded: "Indeed, every country has its share of idle population, and it is the bounden duty of government at all levels, to create an enabling environment for them to actualise their potentials".

Popular rapper Vector also reacted to The President Buhari's speech in his own unique and amusing way.

In his reaction, Atiku Abubakar described the President's statement as shameful.

"The president has not had a media chat in a while, and I'm sure it's deliberate, he has a tendency to say something off mark, so his aides will try as much as possible to avoid free speech", Animashaun said.

Before I came here (Commonwealth Business Forum), the Shell group came and saw me; they are preparing to invest $15bn in Nigeria.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Nigerian youths, by their demonstrated industry, can not in any way be described as lazy.

At a rally in front of the Nigerian high commission in London, the UK-based Nigerians said Buhari was "resetting" the country for good.

The minister of information and culture has said that President Buhari was quoted out of context.

. The President also ought to know that the youths in sports and entertainment industry are the ones bringing glory to our country and not his own generation.

"Those winning medals for our country are youths and not old men".
