andromagik: "There’s actually no direct relationship between laziness and unemployment in the context mentioned, except you mean youths are unemployed because they are lazy. In all fairness, we can’t always blame all misfortunes on the government. Majority of the youths want easy ways out. I must say, I blame social media for it most times. Unholy comparison if you may. We can’t overemphasize this issue."
