Only Few Nigerians Are Complaining About Buhari’s Government – Lai Mohammed

Published

on

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture in this interview with select journalists in Lagos spoke on efforts being made by the Muhammadu Buhari administration to revamp the economy, Mainagate scandal and the recent threats by NigerDelta Avengers (NDA) to resume bombing of oil installations. Excerpts:

What is your perspective on this Mainagate scandal. Don’t you think it is a major dent on this government especially on the anti-corruption war?

The fact that Mr. President, immediately the issue came to his knowledge ask for Maina’s disengagement is the most important thing. That to me is a clear signal that we do not condone corruption. There is no better way to handle the issue than this.


What is the federal government doing to revamp the economy and ensure the ordinary man on the streets feel the impact of our exiting recession?

As you are very much aware, this administration’s contract with Nigerians sits on a tripod: the fight against corruption, tackling insecurity and reviving the economy. Even our worst critics acknowledge the progress we have made in fighting corruption and tackling insecurity. But one area in which they have consistently criticised us is the economy. Right from the inception of this administration, we chose the path of seeking a lasting solution to the economic crisis plaguing the nation instead of engaging in a quick fix that may attract accolades but will not endure. We chose to be painstaking instead of engaging in palliatives. I am happy to inform you today that we are winning!

But one area in which they have consistently criticised us is the economy.

We chose to be painstaking instead of engaging in palliatives. I am happy to inform you today that we are winning! Our well-thought-out policy, encapsulated in the administration’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), launched on April 5th 2017, is working and the results are beginning to show. In September, we exited recession and returned to the path of growth, after five consecutive quarters of contraction. As we said then, taking Nigeria out of recession did not happen by accident. It was the culmination of months of hard work by the administration and fidelity to its well-articulated economic policies. This administration will not relent in its determined effort to usher in a new dawn for Nigeria. We are winning the battle to revive the economy. We are fighting corruption like never before. We are tackling insecurity with a renewed vigour. While the naysayers, who are obviously in the minority, persist in their pastime of acting as a distraction, discerning and well-meaning Nigerians will continue to appreciate and encourage the good work of our administration.

You are the face of APC and the mouthpiece of the federal government. How do you feel when you say something and issue statements and people keep saying ‘It is a lie?

I have two burdens. The first is that I happen to be the face of the opposition and PDP has not forgiven me and they will never forgive me. I think they look at the magnitude of what has happened to them and they hold me solely responsible; which is not fair. But, I did my bit. Now becoming the face of government again, so it is automatic that whatever comes from Lai Mohammed, we must shoot it down as fake news and a lie. Unfortunately, my father gave me the name Lai also. So, it makes it very easy for them. But what I challenge them every time is please, give me one thing I said that is not true. Emotionally, you may not agree with me but in terms of facts and figures, I have never said anything which they can dispute. You don’t have to like it but you can’t deny that they are facts.

We all should speak now for their comfort,because this is part of the reasons why young people hate public service and when they often get employment they see it as a means to steal public funds to preserve them against foreseeable  situations facing pensioners across the nation.
May God bless Nigeria and keep all the pensioners alive to eat the fruits of their labour

There Is No Way Atiku Can Defeat President Buhari In 2019

Published

on

By

Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of Information and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday said Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President cannot defeat President Muhammadu Buhari square up in the 2019 presidential election.

Speaking in a chat with INDEPENDENT, Momoh also said Atiku dumped the APC because he wanted to pursue his presidential ambition and not because of the reasons he stated in his letter announcing his exit from the party.

“A politician has his own agenda when he enters politics. Atiku joined a political organisation called PDM. But it became a political party as at the time APC also became a political party.

“But since that PDM could not meet his aspirations, he joined APC to pursue his dream of becoming President. Consistent with that, he asked for the ticket of APC which he did not get.

“Now 2019 is coming and since he wants to be President and he feels his chances in APC are not bright, he moved to another party – PDP.

But all I know is if Atiku and President Buhari square up together in 2019, there is no way anybody can stop Buhari,” he said.
