Angry Nigerians protested recently when President Muhammadu Buhari made a comment insinuating that Nigerian youths are lazy and only expect to get things for free from the government.
The president who made the statement at the Commonwealth Business Forum, incurred the wrath of the youths who took to social media to say they are not lazy but are actively involved in making a living for themselves.
Now, Linda Ikeji, widely acknowledged as the biggest blogger in Nigeria, has also joined in reacting to the President’s comments.
She posted throwback photos on her Instagram page from 10 years ago when she was just a young, hustling entrepreneur.
“Not a lazy Nigerian” she wrote.
Below is what she posted:
She wrote: “In my office 10 years ago as a struggling 27 year old entrepreneur…10 years into my hustle which started at 17. Not a lazy Nigerian.”
