Lawmaker Mojisola Alli-Macaulay has described Most Nigerian Youths as Drug Addicts in her submission at the Lagos State House.
After the Lekki Toll gate incident on 20th October, 2020, Most Nigerian Leaders has resorted to blaming social media for the spreading of false news which aggravated the whole #EndSARS and #EndPoliceBrutality protest.
Regulation of Social media has been the topic of the week. Popular Former Nollywood Actor and Lagos Lawmaker, Desmond Elliot is one of the Nigerian Politicians supporting the regulation of Social media. Which after his speech on social media regulation at the Lagos State House Assemble meeting, got a lot of backlashes most celebrities and Nigeria.
Whereas most Nigerian people including Linda Ikeji and Desmond Elliot himself have benefited from social media, Lawmaker Mojisola Alli-Macaulay described most Nigerian Youths as drug addicts in her submission to the State House.
She boldly said “most young people in the country are high on drugs at all times“.
These are her words at the State House;
”Look at the children these days. The youths. I like your submission Mr Speaker that it is not unemployment that should be the bane or the reason why youths will come out and misbehave.
There are unemployment in so many countries of the world, even in the United States. I schooled in the UK and I saw a lot of young people who were not employed but they didn’t become hoodlums. Why can’t we look inwards and look for solutions to our problems. Why can’t young people look within themselves, look for their talents.
Even as graduates, what stops you from becoming a designer or a professional tiler?
There is no excuse for being a hoodlum.
I think it’s about time that the National Orientation Agency needs to set to work. We need to begin to orientate our young people. They need people who can talk to them from time to time.
They are high on drugs most of the time, most of them. They go to social media, they do all sorts of things.”
