Tell Buhari We Are Very Hungry – Youths To Ministers

Some ministers on Tuesday in Abuja appealed to Nigerians to exercise patience, saying President Muhammadu Buhari was aware of hunger in the country.

They said the President and the Federal Government were working hard to alleviate their suffering.

The ministers spoke at the Special Edition of a Town Hall Meeting series dedicated to the youths at an event held at the Presidential Villa.

A youth from Kuje area said, “I don’t know if the S.A on Media to the President is here. I would have loved to send him to the President. But honourable ministers, help us tell the President that we are hungry. Nigerians are very hungry. 
“If he has changed from his promises during the campaign, we are also waiting for him in 2019.”

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, hosted the event.

Also at the programme were the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola (SAN); Mrs. Kemi Adeosun (Finance); Audu Ogbeh (Agriculture); Chris Ngige (Labour and Employment) and others.

The ministers were responding to complaints by some members of the audience, who accused them (the ministers) of change in their lifestyles since they assumed office.

The youths insisted that the ministers must carry their message of hunger to the President.

Clapping as the questions were being thrown at the ministers, the youths said President Buhari and members of his cabinet must work to lift the country out of the woods.

The youths also asked the ministers to know that Nigerian youths were waiting for the President and his team in 2019 when another election would be due.
