- Lai Mohammed is optimistic that President Muhammadu Buhari will emerge victorious again in 2019
- Mohammed, the information and culture minister, says the government will continue to deliver on its promises
- He adds that this is one of the reasons he is touring federal government projects
Nigeria’s information and culture minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday, May 22, declared that the re-election of Buhari administration will come easy because it has and will continue to deliver on its campaign promises.
Daily Trust reports that Mohammed spoke during an inspection of the section 2 of the dualisation of Ibadan-Ilorin road which covers between Oyo-Ogbomoso road.
The report quoted him as saying that the federal government's response to criticism is by doing more work that impact on the masses.
He added that it was the reason he and his colleagues are busy touring the country to commission, showcase and inspect the projects the government has embarked since it came into power.
“There is only one way you can get the electorates to vote for you and that is simply by keeping your promises, delivering your promises and embarking on projects that will touch their lives.
“And I am confident that our re-election will be easy because either its in terms of infrastructure or in terms of social intervention we are everyday working for the common man in the country.
“As of today we feed 8.2 million primary school students across the country, we have employed a total of 7000 cooks in about 24 states covering 62000 primary schools just in the area of social intervention.
