Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, , the lawmaker who represents Amuwo Odofin 1 constituency, said this while making her submission during the house’s deliberation on the crisis that rocked the state last week after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protest and carried out wanton destruction of properties and killings.

She called for the reorientation of Nigerian youths. According to her, most young people in the country are ‘high on drugs at all times”. 

She averred that young people now go on social media to do all sorts of things.

In her words;

”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.”
