"More Prosperous Days Will Come Soon" - Lai Mohammed

Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, wants Nigerians to be patient with president Muhamadu Buhari on the issue of price hikes.  He says better days are ahead.

He made the call in Lagos on Saturday during a meeting with online publishers.  The minister said it was mere coincidence that the hikes in both the pump price of fuel and electricity tariff happened simultaneously.  He said even with the hike in fuel prices, Nigeria still has the cheapest fuel prices and electricity tariff in all of west Africa.
