Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration does not “share money”, because it is focused on infrastructural development.
Mohammed said the federal government prefers to invest in what would have ripple effects on the economy, than “sharing money to people and political stooges like the previous administration did.”
The Minister stated this on Friday while inspecting the rehabilitated Ilorin-Jebba-Mokwa road project in Niger state.
“People are complaining of no money and high cost of living, but I want to tell you that it would have been worse today but for the massive infrastructural development this government is investing on.
“We are not a government that will share money like what others did which put the country in a mess.
“This government believes in investing in infrastructure because if you get this rightly, it will translate to wealth creation,” Mohammed said.
