The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has lashed out at critics who claimed the administration of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has failed in the area of economic development.
He said that such statements are borne out of ignorance since infrastructure “is a key driver of economic development”.
He explained this while giving his opening remarks at the ongoing 18th edition of the PMB scorecard series.
The Punch Newspaper quotes the Minister to have said “Through its massive infrastructure development that cuts across the entire country, the Buhari Administration is building, block by block, a new Nigeria, fostering economic and social development and catalysing shared prosperity. With the Nasarawa-Loko Road and the Loko-Oweto Bridge completed, another legacy of the Buhari Administration is assured”.
