Mr Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture on Sunday during an interview with Channels TV has said that President Buhari deserves a second term because he has brought honour and respect back to Nigeria.
“He has rebranded governance, he has put the country on the path of sustainable growth and development, he is rebuilding infrastructure, implementing what can be described as the most ambitious social investment programme in the history of the nation, he is ensuring that a few fat cats do not loot the national resources, at the same time, he is ensuring that Nigeria is self-sufficient in many areas especially in food production.”
“Above all, he has brought honour and respect back to the country and at the same time, fighting all forms of insecurity.”
“We have put in place certain measures that have made it difficult for those who want to loot our resources to do so”.
Mr Mohammed further stated that the anti-corruption war which was one of the three cardinal objectives of the government has been well executed.
When asked to speak on President Buhari and his certificates issues,Lai Mohammed said it was “a non-issue and a mere distraction”
“We have moved beyond that. Let me quote what former President Olusegun Obasanjo said in 2015 during this saga of the President’s certificate. Obasanjo said that it is an insult on a man, who rose to the echelon in Nigeria Army, attended the War College in the US and Staff College in Nigeria, for anyone to start asking whether he has a certificate or not. I think I want to rest this case on that because it is a non-issue”, He added.
