The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that if President Muhammadu Buhari had not won the 2015 Presidential election,Nigeria's economy would have collapsed.

He stated this in Kano on Friday, May 27, during a courtesy visit to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Mohammed said that the President is gradually reviving the economy through prudent management of resources and the introduction of creative ideas to block leakages.

He said: “For the fact that God loves this country, if any other political party had won the election, there would have been no economy to talk about. They wouldn’t have the courage or discipline to manage the economy.

"This government, more than any government, has been working very hard because this is one government that genuinely believes in the people; it is one government that really cares for the poorest of the poor."
