The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the
massive achievements of the Buhari Administration have rattled the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Alhaji
Reacting to the statement from Abubakar’s media aide, over the
widely-circulated testimony series of the Federal Ministry of
Information and Culture to showcase the Administration’s achievements,
the Minister said the action of the PDP candidate amounts to an
acknowledgement of the Administration’s impressive achievements.
He dismissed as ‘acute paranoia’ the allegation by the former Vice
President that the APC-led federal government is using state resources
for electioneering campaign.
Alhaji Mohammed however said, in a statement issued in Ilorin on
Friday, that it is up to those who made the accusation on the use of
state resources for electioneering campaign to prove it, in line with
the maxim that he who alleges must prove.
”In publicising the activities and achievements of the federal
government, the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture is only
carrying out its statutory role. Long before the elections, the
Ministry has used various platforms, including Town Hall Meetings, to
showcase the activities and achievements of the Administration.
”We understand that the PDP and the Atiku Campaign Organization have
been rattled by the achievements as well as the effectiveness of the
campaign to showcase them. We are sorry we can’t help them,” Alhaji
He however expressed surprise that the PDP that said the Buhari
Administration has not achieved anything has now turned around to
admit that the media is awash with video testimonies from Nigerians on
the Administration’s achievements.
