Immediate past governor of Anambra state Peter Obi has said that Nigerian youths

former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi .

Immediate past governor of Anambra state Peter Obi has said that Nigerian youths

only need the right environment to flourish.

Obi made this assertion at the 10th Anniversary celebration of Nnamdi Azikiwe radio station, UNIZIK 94.1FM.

The comment comes on the heels of remarks by President Muhammadu Buhari that many Nigerian youths are not willing to work and are always looking out for freeebies.

However, Obi said if the governance is gotten right, Nigerian youths can do exceptionally well.

“Unemployment is as a result of accumulated bad leadership. There are jobs out there for you and the first job is to ensure good governance,” Obi added.

That you can achieve by voicing out your opinion on national issues and questioning what is happening.

“It is unfortunate that a nation like China which was at par with Nigeria, has so much outgrown her, with her GDP rising from $10.5b to $3trillion.”

The former governor referred to Nigeria as a failed state, with over 10million out of school children and 15m unemployed youths.

Presidency Blasts National Newspaper Over Claims Against President Buhari


ThePresident presidency has condemned an opinion article published by The Sun newspaper associating President Muhammadu Buhari with the killings in Benue and calling him a murderer.

Malam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, made the condemnation when he addressed State House correspondents in Abuja on Friday, February 2.

He also frowned at the frequent expressions of hate speech published by some newspapers in form of news stories and especially in columns.

Shehu said: “We want to state emphatically that a segment of the Nigerian media is sinking deeper and deeper into the mesh of hate speech in spite of repeated appeals by recognised and reputable media bodies, the government and concerned Nigerians.

“Unfortunately, self-regulation which is the norm in civilized societies has taken flight from many of our newsrooms”
For instance, a recent column published in a national newspaper (The Sun newspaper), said ‘President Muhammadu Buhari was the first to endorse the Benue massacre’ on New Year Day.

“The same columnist described the Minister of Defence, Mansur Muhammad Dan-Ali as ‘‘a dyed-in-the-wool Fulani irredentist who places trade over and above human life’’.

“The diatribe went further to invite citizens of the country to arm themselves and fight each other.

“In addition, one of the newspaper’s Saturday headlines proclaimed: ‘Expect More Blood in Benue…’

“Apart from the basic tone of respect expected from an individual who is supposedly intelligent and educated enough to know better since they have been granted space to write in a national newspaper, there is the risk of inciting the public to actions that will have gory consequences for the entire nation for generations to come.

“Those beating the gongs of war and fanning the embers of discord must remember what prevailed in Rwanda before the genocide of the early `90s, during which hundreds of thousands of lives were lost as a result of consistent hate speech spewing from that country’s media.’’

The presidential aide, however, stated that President Buhari, by the Constitution, had the primary duty of protecting life and property of all citizens irrespective of their geo-political backgrounds, adding “that is what he has been doing in Benue and across the country.’’

Shehu stated that calling the president a murderer was not only grossly disrespectful but unfair.

He said: “Calling him a murderer is not only grossly disrespectful but unfair, especially when the President has written a letter to the Senate detailing his efforts to quell the crisis in Benue State.’’

He further noted that the Minister of Interior and the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of operations were also dispatched for an on the spot assessment of the situation in the aftermath of the unfortunate incident.</em>
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that former governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole joined other politicians to react to the controversial letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to run for second term in office

Oshiomhole said the former president is not one of the adviser of the president and is in no position to dish our advice.

The former governor made this statement on Friday while speaking with State House correspondents shortly after a closed doors meeting the president.
