Buhari administration supported states with funds than every other govt since 1999 — Lai Mohammed

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has said that the current government has supported states with funds, more than every other governments since 1999.

He said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has supported states with much intervention funds that every other government since 1999.

Mohammed made this revelation at the ‘6th session of the president’s Administration Scorecard Series (2015-2023)’, which inaugurated in October.

“I make bold to say that no Administration, since the beginning of the current political dispensation in 1999, has done more than the Buhari Administration in supporting states with all sorts of financial interventions,” the minister told reporters.

“When the Administration assumed office in 2015, at least 27 states could not pay salaries. Imagine what would have happened if Mr. President had not offered a helping hand, without discrimination, to the states?

“But for Mr. President, most of the states would have been plunged into a serious socio-economic crisis, with dire consequences for the country.

“Please note that the support to the states came at a time when national resources had dwindled drastically, and also at a time of competing needs in many areas, including infrastructure, security, global pandemic, etc.”
