Muhammadu Buhari GCFR is the President of Nigeria, in office since 2015. He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and antecedently served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985.
Below is a list of controversial things Muhammadu Buhari said during his speeches.
- My wife belongs to my kitchen… On his visit to Germany, he said: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”
Mr Buhari was standing next to Chancellor Angela Merkel, who seemed to glare at him suspiciously.
- Nigerians in prisons all over the world… In an interview with the Telegraph newspaper, President Muhammadu Buhari said that Nigerians abroad have “made it difficult for Europeans and Americans to accept them because of the number of Nigerians in prisons all over the world accused of drug trafficking or human trafficking.” “We have an image problem abroad,” he said. “And we are on our way to salvage that. We will encourage our countrymen to stay at home, work hard and make a respectable living at home.”
- Lazy Nigerian Youths...Buhari said most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything.
Speaking at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, Buhari said youths prefer to do nothing because they feel Nigeria is an oil-rich nation. According to Buhari, a lot of Nigerian youths have not been to school, yet they want everything free. He said, “About the economy, we have a very young population, our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. This is a very conservative one. “More than 60 percent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education for free.” President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday lambasted Nigerian youths in London.
