‘Nigeria is better than how Buhari government met it in 2015’ – Lai Mohammed




On Monday when featured on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) live program, “Good Morning Nigeria’ the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed said Nigeria is better than how the Buhari government met it in 2015.


Speaking on the program, Lai Mohammed said, the Buhari government had met the expectations of Nigerians and was true to its mandate given the time frame and circumstances. The minister said the attempts to de-market the government were the handwork of those who disapprove of his reign and a very vocal minority.

He stated that one of the many achievements of the Buhari-led government is the reclaiming of the 27 local governments that were under the control of Boko Haram members in 2015. He recalled that in 2015, Nigeria was the number one importer of rice from Thailand but with the administration’s policies and programs on agriculture, the country is self-sufficient in the staple and food in general.

Mohammed went further that under the administration’s social intervention programs, 10 million pupils were being fed daily while two million households were benefitting from Conditional Cash Transfers among others.


“We completed the Lagos-Ibadan expressway as well as the second Niger bridge, which was a mirage for more than three decades. Also for more than three decades, Nigerians did not know what it means to travel by train until the Buhari government came to power” he said
