Alhaji Lai Mohammed speaks on #EndSARS protest and the aftermath

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Monday, promised that the Federal Government will improve security in 2021.

Mohammed noted that President Muhammadu Buhari has continued to provide the military and other security agencies with the required support to function better.

The Minister while speaking with newsmen described 2020 as the most challenging years for Nigeria, he added that the outbreak of the pandemic led to an economic recession, a heightened security challenge, and unnecessary violence in the country.

According to Mohammed, as Buhari said in his New Year address, security operatives in the country would be re-energised and re-organised to wag war against criminals.

He condemned the opposition for constantly attacking the president for whatever he does or says.

Mohammed further stated that the opposition messed up in government and they are messing up even more in opposition and there are no lessons learned either way.

He also condemned the predictions by Doomsday, saying Nigeria would not become a failed state but would rise to become a more respected member of the comity of nations.

The Minister had earlier stated maintained that the federal government is not planning to impose another lockdown as the country battles the second wave of covid-19.

Mohammed made the submission on Monday in Lagos State during a conference where he responded to speculations that the government may impose another national lockdown as a result of the recent upsurge in cases of coronavirus infections in the country.
