Osinbajo unveils Information Ministry’s landmark programmes on Buhari administration’s legacies

453

The Ministry of Information and Culture says it has introduced four programmes to preserve the legacies of the eight-year Buhari administration.

The four programmes are documentary, testimony series, compendium of the administration’s achievements and the legacy portal.

The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), who represented President Buhari at the occasion, unveiled the compendium of the administration’s scorecard.

Speaking at the occasion held at the State House, Abuja, on Wednesday, Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed, noted that the four projects are variants of the recently-concluded ‘PMB Administration Scorecard Series (2015-2023)’ which provided a platform for 25 Ministers to give account of their stewardship.

“The Scorecard Series ran from Oct. 19th 2022 to Feb. 14th 2023 and witnessed presentations by 25 Ministers and the Chairman of the National Population Commission. It was a huge success, going by the feedback we have received,” he said in a statement by Mr Segun Adeyemi, the minister’s media aide.

Mohammed attributed the success of the scorecard series to the multi-dimensional strategy that was adopted in executing it.

”Apart from live coverage and live streaming on our Ministry’s social media handles, each edition was amply reported by a group of dedicated senior journalists.

“E-flyers were also generated from each presentation, while video clips from the presentations continue to receive massive play on public and private television stations across the country,” he said.

Mohammed assured that the newly-launched programmes would also benefit from the multi-dimensional strategy to ensure their success.

The Minister said the scorecard series provided a counter to the choreographed pushback by the opposition and the naysayers, who contend that the Buhari Administration has achieved nothing.

“It also provided campaign materials for our party and its candidates in the run-up to the 2023 General elections,” he said,
recalling that the singsong of the opposition was that the Administration has nothing to campaign with.

“We have now shown that not only do we have a lot to campaign with, we are spoilt for choice! We also went beyond the moment by creating the Legacy Portal which is an electronic storehouse of the achievements.

“This is unprecedented in the history of our country.”

The ceremony was attended by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo, the Minister of State (Trade), Ambassador Mariam Katagum, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, his counterpart in the Women Affairs Ministry, Dame Paulin Tallen and the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Zubairu Dada.
