Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has stated that his only regret is that Nigerians have to appreciate that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is doing so much for them.
Mohammed stated this while speaking at a Special Forum of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday.
He claimed that no government in the history of Nigeria had implemented programs alleviating poverty among women and vulnerable groups as well as created jobs for the youths with little resources as the Buhari administration had done.
“My regret in this government is that Nigerians have failed to appreciate that the government is doing much more with much less,” Lai Mohammed said.
“2010 to 2014 crude oil was selling from 100 dollars to 140 dollars per barrel, but the highest we have sold since we came in is 60 dollars.
“Sometimes at the peak of COVID-19 pandemic, we were even paying for storage because nobody wanted to take our crude.
“With the drop in revenues and security challenges this government has not retrenched one person but put in place programs to cushion the effects of the pandemic.”
