The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that Nigeria has improved in every sense now than in 2015 when President Buhari assumed office. Mohammed stated this during an interview with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) on Monday, February 20.

Speaking during the interview, he said the Buhari-led government has put Nigeria in order and has not disappointed Nigerians. The minister said those trying to condemn the government are die-hard naysayers.

He stated some of the many achievements of the Buhari-led government, including; reclaiming of the 27 local governments that were under the control of Boko Haram members in 2015. He also said that in 2015, Nigeria was the number one importer of rice from Thailand but with the administration’s policies and programs on agriculture, now the country doesn’t have food problems. 

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

Alhaji Lai also listed the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, second Niger Bridge and train service as projects completed by the Muhammadu Buhari regime.

However, he failed to point out that the Lagos-Ibadan expressway is still uncompleted, with commuters recounting harrowing tales on the road. The second Niger Bridge is still not open to the public while the train service, especially the Abuja-Kaduna Train has been a target for terrorists and kidnappers which resulted in the stoppage of the service for months.
