The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the massive achievements of the Buhari Administration have rattled the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

A statement by the minister’s Special Assistant, Segun Adeyemi, quoted Mr Mohammed while reacting to the statement from former Vice-President’s media aide, over the widely-circulated testimony series of the information and culture ministry to showcase the Administration’s achievements.

He dismissed as ‘acute paranoia’ the allegation by the former Vice President that the APC-led federal government is using state resources for electioneering campaign.

Mr Mohammed however said, in a statement issued in Ilorin on Friday, that it is up to those who made the accusation on the use of state resources for electioneering campaign to prove it, in line with the maxim that he who alleges must prove.

”In publicising the activities and achievements of the federal government, the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture is only carrying out its statutory role.

“Long before the elections, the Ministry has used various platforms, including Town Hall Meetings, to showcase the activities and achievements of the Administration.

”We understand that the PDP and the Atiku Campaign Organization have been rattled by the achievements as well as the effectiveness of the campaign to showcase them. We are sorry we can’t help them,” Mr Mohammed said.

He, however, expressed surprise that the PDP that said the Buhari Administration has not achieved anything has now turned around to admit that the media is awash with video testimonies from Nigerians on the Administration’s achievements.
