‘We Will Stop Blaming Jonathan’s Government For Causing Recession’- Lai Mohammed
While speaking at the fourth Commonwealth Public Relations Congress in Lagos, Mohammed assured Nigerians of government’s commitment to implementing realistic policies that would reverse the trend.
“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,” Segun Adeyemi, Mohammed spokesman, quoted him as saying.
“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.”
Mohammed said while the Buhari administration rode to power on the crest of change, there can be no change without discomforts.
He, however, assured Nigerians that with persistence on the part of the government and perseverance on the part of the people, there was light at the end of the tunnel.
