Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says history will be fair and kind to President Muhammadu Buhari despite naysayers’ attempt to downplay his regime’s achievements.
Mr Mohammed made the declaration at the inaugural edition of the PMB Administration Scorecard (2015-2023) series organised by the ministry on Wednesday in Abuja.
He stressed that the administration had implemented high-impact projects across the country that met the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians and that history would be fair to the administration.
“Those whose trips have been shortened and smoothened by good roads and bridges will remember those who constructed those roads and bridges.”
The minister also said Nigerians who travel by rail and use modern terminals at the airports would remember the president.
“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,” Mr Mohammed said.
Mr Mohammed noted that naysayers had attempted to play down the massive and unprecedented achievements of Mr Buhari’s administration while politicising issues.
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, Umar El-Yakub and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, 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.
