Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that the hardship being faced by Nigerians will soon be over.
The minister gave the assurance in Enugu on Thursday at a town hall meeting with a cross-section of residents of the state.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to fulfilling his campaign promises to the people.
According to Mohammed, the present administration still bears in mind its promises to the masses and will fulfill them before the end of its tenure.He said, “There will be employment, school meal programme, scholarship and expansion of small-scale investments in the country, and many more. Our message is that the hardship will soon be a thing of the past.
“The President is committed to strengthening the electoral process and the Nigerian economy.” He, however, said that the delay being experienced was due to some issues in the passage of the 2016 budget.
“No government can achieve its aim or implement its promises without the budget,” Mohammed said.
He said the present government would accommodate all citizens, including the womenfolk.
“The present administration has incorporated women and would continue to accommodate capable and competent women in its strategic positions,” he said.
The minister said that the Federal Government would address the problems of the country through the diversification of its economy, quality education and good health system.
