First, “a lot of” means “a majority of.” “Majority” means more than half. Second, Buhari doesn’t have to use the word “lazy” before discerning people know that, that was the meaning he was conveying. When you “sit and do nothing” (Buhari’s words) you are lazy. Pure and simple. You can’t twist that. I don’t have to call you a “thief” before you know that’s what I mean when I say you take people’s things without their permission. I don’t have to call you a “murderer” before you know that’s what I mean when I say you take people’s lives without just cause. I think Buhari defenders need to go back to school and learn some basic English grammar.
