The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that Nigeria has improved in every sense than how was 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 didn’t disappoint 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.

“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.
