Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has said that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will turn the disaster it inherited from former president, Goodluck Jonathan into a blessing.

Mohammed made the remark during a meeting with members of the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON), according to The Cable.

“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,” he said.

“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.

“In the words of Henry David Thoreau, all misfortune is but a stepping stone to fortune. 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 added.

Mohammed also assured Nigerians that the Buhari administration will deliver the promised change.
