President Muhammadu Buhari has delivered on his campaign promises, and deserves to be voted for a second term, says Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.

“Many people did not believe that we could hold inauguration ceremony at the Eagle Square because, until we came, the eagle square had not been used for several years.” he said at NAN Forum.

“As Buhari was being sworn-in, 20 out of the 27 Local Government in Borno state and another four Local Governments in Adamawa state were under the effective control and occupation of Boko Haram.

“Three and half years later, I can say without any fear of contradiction that not even an inch of our territory today is under the control of Boko Haram.”

He said that the scorecard of the Federal Government on corruption should not be viewed from the angle of the number of people arrested, prosecuted or jailed.

The minister said that the fight should be seen from the measures put in place to ensure transparency in governance with the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA).

He said, “Between 2015 and today, N8.9 trillion has gone through the TSA and that has made possible for government to know the money it has at any given time and where to allocate it.”
