“Most young people are high on drugs all the time, and do all sorts of things on social media” – Lagos lawmaker, Alli-Macaulay says (Video)


Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, a Lagos state lawmaker, has said most young people in Nigeria are high on drugs at all time – a major reason they do all sorts of things on social media.

She made this known while speaking during a recent plenary session at the Lagos state House of Assembly.
The legislator who represents Amuwo Odofin 1 constituency, said this while making her submission during a deliberation on the crisis that trailed #EndSARS protests in the state.
According to her, young people now go to social media to do all sorts of things because a majority of young people in Nigeria are “high on drugs all the time.”
Her submission was made same day Desmond Elliot and other lawmakers in the statecomplained bitterly about how young people used the social media to fuel #EndSARS crises.
She said, “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 willcome 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 bcome 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 bcoming 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.”

Moment masquerade was spotted preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ on the street (Video)


Video footage has captured the moment a masquerade was seen preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to the public while everyone watched in awe.
The masquerade fully clad in a traditional outfit went contrary to what was expected after he was spotted with a bible on his hands as he preached about love among the brethren.
The masquerade who passed his message in Igbo dialect urged people to embrace peace and love and also to love and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and saviour.

He added that if one claims to love God and still bears grudges and hatred against his neighbours, that wouldn’t be considered genuine love.
