History Will Be Fair To President Buhari Says Lai Mohammed


Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said contrary to the assessment of “naysayers”, history and posterity will be kind to President Muhammadu Buhari for his achievements.

Mohammed spoke on Wednesday, at the inaugural edition of the PMB Administration Scorecard (2015-2023) series organised by the ministry, in Abuja.

He said though naysayers had attempted to play down “the massive and unprecedented achievements of Buhari’s administration by politicising issues, it has implemented high-impact projects that meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians across the country.

“Those whose trips have been shortened and smoothened by good roads and bridges will remember those who constructed those roads and bridges.

“Those who use the modern terminals at our airports will remember who built them.

“Those who ride on modern trains on Lagos-Ibadan, Abuja-Kaduna and Itakpe-Warri routes will not forget those who made those things happen.

“The 9.8 million school children who are fed daily; the 1 million youths that have been empowered, as well as the 500,000 youths who are undergoing training under the N-Power, will not forget this administration.

“The 1,632,480 households that have been enrolled in the Conditional Cash Transfer Programme will also not forget the administration’s welfare programmes.”

The minister said the scorecard series was designed to showcase the massive achievements of the administration as it winds down.

He assured that ministers and other top government officials would feature in the series to showcase the giant strides in their various ministries and sectors.

Wednesday’s session was attended by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Works and Housing, Alhaji Umar El-Yakub and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Mohammed Bello.

Also at the event were the Minister of State for Science and Technology, Ikechukwu Ikoh and Chief Executive Officers of parastatal agencies in the Ministry of Information and Culture.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, was also present at the event.
