” Well, the question was answered when there was #EndSARS. You remember the ‘ end’ people, who wanted to march here and remove me, ” Buhari said.
” Go to any governor now and ask him to give you contractor to give you a job, he’ ll tell you there s no vacancy. The same thing with the local government. So, you may have a good degree, but you may die without having a job. Why?
” Because nobody is going to invest in an insecure environment. So I told them to tell the youth that if they want jobs, they will behave themselves, make sure Nigeria is secure, so people can come and invest.
” Look at the 200 buses bought by the former governor of Lagos, some of these boys went and burnt the vehicles. Who will go and invest their money in an unstable environment? Nobody will.
” It’ s just common sense. So you behave yourself, you make Nigeria secure, and people will invest. “
