(NAN) The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to fulfilling his campaign promises to the people.
The minister gave the assurance in Enugu on Thursday at a town-hall meeting with a cross section of residents of the state.
According to Mohammed, the present administration is still bearing in mind its promises to the masses and will fulfill them before the end of its tenure.
“The President is committed to strengthening the electoral process and the Nigerian economy,” he said, adding, however, that the
delay being experienced was due to some issues in the passage and assent 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.
“This government will not neglect infrastructure development, and will ensure that there is good governance and zero tolerance for corruption.
“There will be employment, one meal-per-day program for schools, scholarship and expansion of small-scale businesses in the country, and many more.
“Our message is that the hardship will soon be a thing of the past,” he said.
Mohammed said that the present administration will diversify the economy through agriculture, mining of the nation’s natural resources and others.
He also assured that crime would be eradicated in the country, saying that any crime with proper evidence would be dealt with according to the law. (NAN)
