The opposition party said this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary Mr Kola Ologbondiyan on Thursday in Abuja, a day after it held its National Executive Council (NEC) emergency meeting.
President Muhammadu Buhari had in a video said that many of the youths below the age of 30 were uneducated, but waiting for everything to be done for them, just because Nigeria is an oil-rich country.
The President’s comment was, however, greeted by criticism from many Nigerians, some of whom accused him of describing the youths as lazy.
Also reacting to the statement, the PDP described the purported statement as a direct injury on the sensibility of the youths who are known worldwide to be hardworking.
“The PDP reaffirms its belief and confidence in Nigerian youths and boldly announces to the world that our youths are resourceful and agile. Our nation is blessed with hardworking young men and women,” it noted.
