Old Column Exposes Boris Johnson Calling Nigerians “Money-Hungry”

In a shocking new revelation, an old article in one of controversial UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, showed the PM as being racist towards Nigerians.

Mr. Johnson has come under fire for being racist after an old column where he compared youths’ appetite for money to “almost a Nigerian interest in money and all things gadget” resurfaced on the internet.

The article was published in October 1999, when the PM was the editor of The Spectator Magazine. In the piece, he wrote that the people he knew who were below 30 “are just as avaricious as we flinty Thacherite yuppies of the 1980s” and then went ahead to make the remark.

To read the article in question, head over to The Spectator (Archived Article).
