2019: FG Engages Foreign Media, Think Tanks To Launder Buhari’s Image - Daily Ni by Islie: 2:08pm On Oct 19, 2018
By Rayyan Alhassan



The Federal Government says it is engaging foreign media organisations, networks and think tanks to correct the negative narratives about the country and President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this in London after an engagement with the Royal African Society, a body founded in 1990 to promote relations between the UK and Africa.

Specifically, the minister said that the engagement was to shape their minds and opinions on the true position of insurgency in the North East, farmers/herdsmen clash and the achievements recorded by the Buhari administration which were being downplayed.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the minister arrived in London on Sunday and delivered a lecture in Chatham House, the UK-based Royal Institute of International Affairs.

He also interacted with foreign and Commonwealth Office officials, All Party Parliamentary Group and featured on Aljazeera television news hour.

The minister also met with the largest global news agency, Reuters, New African and African Business Magazines and African Report.

Mohammed said that the whole essence of the engagements was to correct the negative narratives about the country and place on the table the giant strides of the Buhari government.

He added that “the whole idea of the trip is to engage foreign media organisations, networks and think tanks to actually explain the activities of government.

“As you were aware, we have been to the UK twice and the U.S. on this kind of mission.

“I think generally it has been quite fruitful because it offered us the platform and opportunity to explain to them what this government has achieved in the areas of security, fighting corruption and in revamping the economy.

“It also gives us the opportunity to disabuse the minds of the people about the insecurity in the North-East and how the government has succeeded in returning normalcy in affected areas.

“It offers us the opportunity to explain that the farmers/herdsmen clash is largely due to population explosion, climate change and criminality as against the naysayers’ position that it is ethnic or religious.

“Really, it has been quite helpful and we will continue with the engagements.”

The minister said he was satisfied with the level of reception and understanding achieved during the visits.

On the challenge of unemployment in the country raised during one of the meetings, Mohammed said “the administration had been trying to clean up the mess by past governments.

“For 16 years, no attempt was made to invest on infrastructure, there was absolute corruption.

“So, what you have today about unemployment is actually as a result of bad governance.

“Even at that, we have made very positive giant strides.

“In the history of Nigeria, no administration under any programme has employed half a million unemployed graduates as we have done through our N-POWER programme.”

Mohammed said the administration had diversified the economy by repositioning agriculture to become the choice of many Nigerians.

“We have been able to grow rice farmers from five million to 11 million, we have been able to cut down on importation of rice.
“So, ours is a success story in the areas of agriculture and unemployment.”

The minister stressed that the visit was not just about the 2019 general elections, rather, it was to present the facts and figures on Buhari’s achievements and true situation of security in the country.

“Many of the organisations we met were surprised to hear that we have spent as much as 7.5 billion dollars in two years on infrastructure.

“They were quite impressed to see that power generation jumped from 2,560 megawatts to 7000 megawatts.”

The minister is scheduled for more engagements before returning to Nigeria.

Only a failure does this.

We sane nigerians living in asia support ATIKU for president 2019!

ATIKU is not tribalistic
ATIKU is not clueless
ATIKU is not lifeless
ATIKU is not dull

ATIKU is the only forward for Nigeria to be on the global map (as a world power)

South South ,South East ,North East, Middle Belt will vote massively for the WAZIRI ADAMAWA in 2019!

WITH PETER OBI AS ATIKU'S VP,THE ESTEEMED AND INTELLIGENT IGBOS WILL TROOP OUT MASSIVELY TO SEND THE lifeless,tribalistic,nepotistic,dead,useless and failed DULLARD back to DAURA .

we sane nigerians support PDP√√√√

So all the Propaganda achievements back home here can't launder the image of the Buhari government for re-election Which foreign media agency again? I understand!

This current bad imagine of this government is so unmarketable that they have to confined Lai Muhammed, Garba Shehu, Adeshina, Laurreta Onochie etc to the background.

Yet this idiots tell us that change begin with us asked us to promote Nigeria.Meanwhile all the global assessment indices have rated this useless govt on an abysmally low grade.This regime comes to an end in 2019.

The garb of usefulness you are trying to put on buhari will eventually be your albatross in the name of all the dead family members throughout the Middle belt, that you've knowingly and unknowingly killed in the useless name of fulani ethnocentric madness....

Nnamdi Kanu is the greatest thing that will ever happen to Ndigbo

Either Atiku or Obi should step down for Mazi to take over ELSE

No Referendum no Election.

PDP and Atiku will be crying now that one of their campaign strategy had being busted before implementation.

Why don't you let your achievements speak for you. Why do you need to convince people if you have really done well. None of the past governments you are condemning did this. People will evaluate u based on what they see and what is real. So you are still going to take out of the borrowed money for image building and you di not say that when asking for senate approval. I just wish our people can think right.
