Lai Mohammed, minister of information, says the current administration does not “share money” because it is focused on infrastructural development.

He said the federal government prefers to invest in infrastructure that would have ripple effects on the economy than “sharing money to people and political stooges like the previous administration did.”

The minister said this on Friday while inspecting the rehabilitated Ilorin-Jebba-Mokwa road project in Niger state.

According to him, “people are complaining of no money and high cost of living, but I want to tell you that it would have been worse today but for the massive infrastructural development this government is investing on.’’

He added: “We are not a government that will share money like what others did which put the country in a mess.

“This government believes in investing in infrastructure because if you get this rightly, it will translate to wealth creation.”

Mohammed also said people complaining about lack of money in circulation “easily forget that for 16 years, one political party was in power, sharing money, when this road became completely failed.”

The minister said the road project was awarded by the previous administration in 2013 but was only 15 percent completed when the current government came in.

“Let us take for instance, if this road contract costs N10 billion and we share it to political stooges in this area at N1 million each, we will only give 1,000 people and there will be no road,” he said.

“At the long run, those that we share the money to will join in abusing the government of non-performance.

“On our part, we will rather slowly and painstakingly revive our economy through infrastructural development and we have a lot of stories to tell on this.”
