The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that the government will no longer make excuses about the current recession.

Mohammed made the comment while speaking at the fourth Commonwealth Public Relations Congress in Lagos.

“We are not unaware of the harsh effects of the recession on the citizens. We share in their pains and we make no excuses as we continue to work round the clock to ensure that this tough time is quickly brought to an end. The good news is that the prognosis for a quick end to the recession is encouraging,” he said.

“As the saying goes, the recession is a bend in the road, not the end of the road. The challenge for us as a government is to turn the bend, and we are doing just that,” he added.

The minister also denied rumours that President Muhammadu Buhari donated $500 million to the presidential campaign of former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
