Two years ago, Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari while speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum commented that a lot of Nigerian youth have not been to school and want everything free. This drew backlash from young people in the country, leading to the #LazyNigerianYouths movement on social media.
