Lai Mohammed Says Corrupt Elements Are Working Against Buhari’s Administration
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said corrupt elements were doing everything possible to obfuscate the good work of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, as a response to the government’s determined fight against corruption.
Addressing members of staff of the Nigerian Embassy at Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Sunday, Mohammed said as government fights corruption, corruption is also fighting back, using even unsuspecting sources, adding that the act is the biggest challenge facing the administration at the moment.
He however assured Nigerians that the administration remained determined and focused in its efforts to root out corruption in the country.
Responding to a question on how the government can better ensure the flow of timely and accurate information to Nigerian Missions abroad, Mohammed said the Ministry would launch an Information App on December 15 to provide real time information to Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora.
He also said the Ministry is considering setting up a Foreign Service Information System as part of plans to furnish the Missions with much needed information, especially for prospective investors and tourists.
He also announced that efforts were being made to revitalize the National Orientation Agency (NOA), which he said is the closest to the grassroots, with a view to strengthening to be able to communicate the programmes and policies of the Administration to Nigerians.
The Minister, who was in Abu Dhabi to attend the International Conference on the Safeguarding of Cultural Heritage in Conflict Areas, said the Administration has acquitted itself creditably in fighting the insurgency in the North-east, tackling the incessant clashes between farmers and herders and taking concrete measures to end the militancy in the Niger Delta.
