The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that the victory of Muhammadu Buhari at the 2015 Presidential election saved Nigeria’s economy from collapse occasioned by the mismanagement and corruption of the past administration.
The Minister made the remarks in Kano on Friday, during a courtesy visit to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, shortly before the commencement of the Hausa language town hall meeting in the ancient city.
“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,” he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said through prudent management of resources and the introduction of creative ideas to block leakages, the President is gradually reviving the economy and assured Nigerians of a prosperous tomorrow.
“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,” he said.
