Buhari to the youth: Learn how to behave if you want us to give you jobs


President Muhammadu Buhari, has advised the Nigerian youth that if they want jobs, they must firstly behave themselves.

Buhari stated this on Thursday during an interview with Arise TV.

The President also charged the youths to secure the country so that investors will be able to invest in the country.
He said Nigeria is a resource country as God has endowed us with several natural resources.
Buhari stated that nobody will want to invest in an unstable environment citing the Lagos state protest and destruction as an example.
“Nigeria must be stable first. Why? Because nobody is ready to invest in an unsecure environment. So I tell youth that if they want jobs, they should behave themselves. They should make sure that Nigeria is secured so that investors can come.” Buhari said.
The President also said he had given the police and Armed Forces order to be ruthless with bandits and vandals terrorising across the country.He said he had told the police and the military to treat bandits in the northern part of “the language they understand”.

“Problem in the north-west; you have people over there stealing each other’s cattle and burning each other’s villages. Like I said , we are going to treat them in the language they understand.

We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be difference.

”Because we told them if we keep people away from their farms, we are going to starve. And the government can’t control the public.

“If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference,” he assured.

Speaking on dealing with farmers/herders clashes, the President said the problem had persisted because old cattle routes and grazing areas had been violated by development, adding those who had taken over such traditional arrangements would be dispossessed.
