Lai Mohammed 300x199 - How Buhari Prevented Nigeria From Becoming Failed State – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has revealed how President Muhammadu Buhari saved Nigeria from becoming a failed state.

He noted that the President prevented Nigeria following his assumption of office in 2015.

Mohammed said Buhari saved Nigeria after what he called a “long stretch of rapacious and rudderless leadership.”

The Minister disclosed this in a statement released through his media aide, Segun Adeyemi.

According to him, Buhari took over power at a time when the country was besieged by insurgents, stressing that many Nigerian towns and cities, including the capital city of Abuja, were a playground for insurgents.

He added that as at the time the President took over, Nigeria’s wealth had been looted dry, with little or nothing to show for the nation’s huge earnings.

He said: ”Nigeria today faces a lot of challenges. But whatever situation the country has found itself in, things would have been much worse but for the deft management of resources, unprecedented fight against corruption, determined battle against insurgency and banditry as well as the abiding courage of Mr President in piloting the ship of state.”

”Nigeria today is not a failed state, but a nation that is courageously tackling its challenges and building solid infrastructure that will serve as the basis for socio-economic development, a nation that is unrelenting in battling insecurity and working hard to ensure greatest prosperity for the greatest number of people.”
