The Personal Assistant to President Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, says many Nigerian youths are ignorant and timid and have been badly influenced by the corrupt leaders in PDP.
Speaking at the 2nd Annual International Conference of the Progressive Solidarity Forum (PSF) in Abuja yesterday October 31st, Lauretta said the PDP members in the Buhari-led administration, are bad influence to youths in the country and that they have succeeded in making these timid and ignorant youths the organs of transmitting hate speeches, and raining down abusive words and insults on the policies of this government to discredit its work against corruption.
According to Lauretta, “People will say how do I cope with all the abuses, curses and excitement of the social media. Many of our youths do not understand what they are doing, they have never known freedom so we raise young people who are ignorant, who are timid and afraid of challenges and when their rights are trampled on they are afraid of challenging it. That brings me to those in this government who are here to serve themselves, those that colonel Hameed Ali, the Controller General of Customs called PDP.
He said that there are about 50 per cent of them in this government but I say no they are more than 50 per cent. They are everywhere; they are in the presidency, they are in the national assembly, you can find them in the judiciary, they are in the law enforcement agencies. They serve their personal interests. They encourage our unsuspecting youths to be their foot soldiers on the social media to abuse and curse people while their own children are sipping tea in America, in England or elsewhere. They are a bad example to our youngsters on social media.”
