Veteran comedian, Alleluya Akporobome, popularly called Ali Baba, has claimed that some Nigerian youths have “mental laziness.”
Ali Baba, therefore, urged them to get relevant skills that would enable them to become finally independent.
“Mental laziness is the biggest challenge facing our youths. A lot of people said President Muhammadu Buhari was wrong when he said that Nigerian youths were lazy,” he told Punch.
“But there are young people who don’t want to do any work in this country. They have no respect for anyone who is employed.
“These people even treat labourers with disdain and laugh at commercial drivers.”
He thus called on “youths to pick up skills. Models and actors now depend heavily on makeup artists and fashion designers.
“With makeup artistry, Tara Fela-Durotoye is very successful and she has trained a lot of people too.”
