The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has on Monday, revealed that doomsday predictions against Nigeria will fail.
He disclosed this at a Press Conference, in Lagos.
He stressed that doomsday prediction about Nigeria would not come to pass, recalling that some pseudo Analysts have predicted an implosion of Nigeria in the last two decades.
“This has not happened, and it will not happen”, he said, adding that the President Muhamamdu Buhari Federal Government had made remarkable progress in tackling insecurity, as could be seen with the peaceful Christmas and New Year festivities.
He recalled that in 2010 and 2011, Christmas and New Year eve bombings left scores dead and injured, but this is no longer the case, assuring that the Federal Government would sustain its fight against terrorism and kidnapping.
Lai Mohammed described the year 2020 as a very challenging year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the #EndSARS protests, and the “heightened insecurity”.
However he assured that the country would record positive growth in 2021, and come out of the current economic recession, going by the various interventions by the government in several sectors of the economy.
He noted: “Doomsday predictions about Nigeria will not come to pass. Nigeria will not become a failed State, but will rise to become a more respected member of the comity of nations.”
