The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Friday declared that President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership style will earn him reelection on February 16.
Mohammed also said Buhari will be reelected due to his commitment to the well being and welfare of Nigerians.
He spoke during a rally organised by the ex-workers and pensioners of the defunct Nigeria Airways in Lagos.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted Mohammed as saying Buhari put an end to the 14-year wait and suffering of the 5,996 former staffers of the defunct Nigerian Airways.
He said: “It is noteworthy that since the liquidation of Nigeria Airways, successive Administrations have failed to settle the ex-staffers, leading to untold suffering and loss of human dignity by the affected people.
“It is not just the former staffers of Nigeria Airways who have benefitted from the people-oriented policy of this Administration.
“Former Biafra Policemen, former workers of the Delta Steel Company, Aladja, and former NITEL workers have also seen their years of suffering and neglect come to an end.
“For the more than 800 deceased ex staffers of Nigeria Airways, their next of kin will also receive the entitlements due to them.”
Mohammed listed some of the Social Investment Programmes of the Administration that would guarantee reelection of the President.
The Minister pointed out that the Conditional Cash Transfer had benefitted 300,000 families while 9.3 million children were being fed daily under the home grown school feeding programme.
He said the N-Power had employed 5,000 graduates and the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme/Tradermoni had covered 1.2 million people.
