We Take Full Responsibility of the Current Harsh Economy In the Country – Lai Mohammed


Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture has said the Federal Government will continue to take responsibility for the current economic situation in the country, even as he said he is aware of the harsh effect of the economic recession on Nigerians, stressing that the government is working towards ending the situation.

Mohammed made the remark at the fourth Commonwealth Public Relations Congress in Lagos and was contained in a statement by the Minister’s spokesperson, Segun Adeyemi.
Adeyemi quoted the Minister as saying the federalgovernment will stop making excuses about the state of the economy.
He said, “We are not unaware of the harsh effects of the recession on the citizens. We share in their pains and we make no excuses as we continue to work round the clock to ensure that this tough time is quickly brought to an end. The good news is that the prognosis for a quick end to the recession is encouraging.
“As the saying goes, the recession is a bend in the road, not the end of the road. The challenge for us as a government is to turn the bend, and we are doing just that.”
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier in the year said he would continue to blame past administrations for the country’s current economic situation.
