The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has lauded President Buhari for his immense achievements and has revealed that his reputation cannot be soiled with the security challenges he’s facing.
The Minister spoke at a press conference on the mid-term anniversary of President Buhari’s second tenure where he revealed that Buhari is on his way to seal his legacy as one of the best presidents of the land..
He said: ”Let me repeat what I have said many times in the past: Never in the history of our country has any Administration done so much with so little.
It’s easy to forget now, but when this Administration came into office in 2015, the price of crude oil, which provides 80 per cent of Nigeria’s budgetary revenues and 95 per cent of foreign exchange earnings, dropped drastically and, along with it, the fund available to the government. It is therefore monumental that this Administration has achieved so much despite the paucity of fund.
I want to state emphatically that while more attention has been given, especially in recent times, to the security challenges facing our country, those challenges are fleeting and will not define the legacy of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Let me say that President Buhari’s legacy is assured, and will be defined by his massive achievements in office. The roads, rails, bridges, mass housing, port development, improvement in power supply and other massive infrastructural development will last for generations to come and will help propel economic growth and national development.”
He revealed some achievements of President Buhari since assuming office in 2015. They are:
*Enugu-Port Harcourt dualization
* Abuja-Abaji-Lokoja dualization
* Abuja-Kaduna- Zaria Expressway
* Kano-Maiduguri Expressway dualization
* Suleja-Minna highway
* Milliken Hill Ngwo & Bonny-Bodo-Road
