LAI Mohammed, national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said on Thursday, July 2, that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had the blueprints to tackle Nigeria’s developmental challenges.
Mohammed who noted that Nigeria had enormous and critical challenges in many sectors especially in areas of health, education and unemployment, promised that the Buhari administration had worked out immediate, intermediate and long term measures to tackle all challenges in the critical sectors.
Mohammed, who spoke at his ninth Ramadan Lecture in Oro, Kwara State, assured Nigerians that Buhari was up to the task of solving the problems facing the nation even in the face of paucity of funds.
The politician attributed the paucity of funds to the fall in the price of crude oil, on which Nigeria depends for most of its foreign exchange earnings as well as an alleged “unbridled and maddening corruption that has seen public officers siphon public funds.”
Mohammed said: “I have deliberately taken us through the grim statistics in the very key areas of health, education, poverty and unemployment to drive home the point that we are in trouble as a nation if we don’t act in a deliberate, concerted and determined way to turn things around for the better.”
