The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has advised Nigerians to be hopeful because there perseverance will not be vain as he assured them that prosperity lies ahead.

 He said this during a meeting with members of the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria, BON, in Abuja yesterday.

He lauded Nigerians for the support so far they have given to the present administration.

In his words, “In the words of Henry David Thoreau, all misfortune is but a stepping stone to fortune,” the minister said.

“Change is no instant coffee, it is a process. We are now laying a solid foundation for our country.The road will be rough, but as the saying goes, the darker the night, the brighter the morning. Our long suffering people will surely smile again.”

He noted that the country is presently going through hard times as it has lost not less than 60 per cent of national income due to the crash in the price of crude oil. He promised that the administration will surely fulfill its election promises.

“This administration is aware that it was not elected to make excuses, but to put the nation back on a sound economic footing, ensure the security of lives and property and banish corruption.

“We have therefore decided to turn the disaster that we inherited into a blessing by diversifying our economy away from the mono-product of oil, leveraging on agriculture, solid minerals as well as culture and tourism, among others,” he said.
