Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has described those criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari over area of economic development as ignorant.

Mohammad underlined that the administration has done well in the last eight years during his remarks on Thursday, January 12, at the ongoing 18th edition of the PMB scorecard series.Lai Mohammed

According to him, such statements are borne out of ignorance since infrastructure “is a key driver of economic development”.

He said;

“Critics of the Administration will say that while it has done well in the area of infrastructure, it has not fared well in the area of the economy. With due respect, statements like this are borne out of ignorance.

This is because infrastructure is a key driver of economic development, meaning that when you are building modern infrastructure as this Administration is doing, you are actually putting in place the building blocks of economic and social development.

When you are constructing roads and bridges, you create jobs as you will employ workers, you trigger economic activities as you will buy sand, granite, cement and other construction materials, you create a mini-economy around the construction site as food sellers and others converge there to cater to the needs of the workers”
