The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday noted that some individuals and groups now enjoy berating the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over the poor state of the economy which was not caused by the present government.
He stated this at the special town hall meeting organized by the ministry in collaboration with the Alumni Association of the National Institute, AANI, in Abuja, calling on other organizations to join hands with the government to move our country forward.
The minister said, “At a time that some individuals and groups have made it their pastime to continually castigate government over an economic situation which is not its own making, but has been working hard to mitigate, this Association has chosen instead to engage with the government.
“In other words, by their decision to hear from the government, ask questions and also make their own input, AANI has chosen to be a part of the solution, rather than to compound the challenges.
“Let me also appeal to other organizations across the country to emulate the Alumni Association by joining hands with the government to move our country forward. The task of nation building is for all Nigerians. Government alone cannot do it.”
