The Honorable Minister for Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, yesterday at the Nigerian Consulate-General in Atlanta Georgia, said that Nigeria was not a problematic or failed nation but a country that is facing the challenges that almost all the countries in the world face. He added that those challenges would go off with time.
Addressing The Nigeria Conversation jointly organized by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Information and the Nigerian Consulate-General in Georgia, Mr. Labaran Maku said that there was no society without its own problem just as he asked the public to stop describing Nigeria as problematic.
“People should stop lamenting about problems, they should look for ways to solve such problems and by so doing, they will turn all these problems to investment opportunities in Nigeria. This is what America has been doing to make the country look the best despite the challenges it faces as well. America does use its problems to achieve reformation” he said.
He further asked Nigerians to stop listening to negative information about the country, urging them to always go to the Social Media websites of the country in order to be properly informed about what is happening in different sectors and then find a way to actualize what they could do to help the federal government in all the sectors.
Speaking on power, Minister Labaran Maku said that there would be a power revolution between the next two and three years just as there was a revolution in the Telecommunication sector which he said had opened a lot of business opportunities and as well created employments and made communication easier in Nigeria.
