The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that the Buhari administration is steadily transforming Nigeria through innovative measures that are yielding positive results.
The minister said this while delivering a keynote address during the 2018 ‘Africa Together Conference’ at the University of Cambridge in the UK on Saturday.
According to a statement signed by his special adviser, Mr Segun Adeyemi, the minister listed investment in people, change in the business environment and building national infrastructure as some of the areas which the administration has made a great impact.
He said by focusing on education and skills acquisition, the administration is addressing the need to create opportunities for the country’s teeming youth population.
He, however, explained that one of the challenges in the education sector is malnutrition of school-age children which he says the government has made major efforts to combat.
He said the administration is also changing the business environment for good, focusing especially on removing the red tape that makes it cumbersome for business and stifles innovation.
