The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed says President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the 2015 Presidential election saved Nigeria’s economy from collapse, as the past administration had almost ran the economy aground.
“For the fact that God loves this country, if any other political party had won the election, there would have been no economy to talk about. They wouldn’t have the courage or discipline to manage the economy,” Mohammed said in Kano on Friday, during a courtesy visit to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
The minister said the government of the day is gradually reviving the economy through prudent management of resources and the introduction of creative ideas to block leakages.
“This government, more than any government, has been working very hard because this is one government that genuinely believes in the people; it is one government that really cares for the poorest of the poor. For the first time we have a President whose integrity is actually driving the country,” Mohammed said.
The Buhari government will celebrate its first year in power on May 29.
