The Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, claimed on Wednesday that Nigeria was a ‘pariah state’ before President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in May 2015.
Mr Mohammed made the statement while addressing reporters after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
The Minister claimed that no investors and investment came into Nigeria during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s regime until the present administration took over power.
After taking over power in May, President Buhari has made several trips which the administration said were aimed at strengthening ties and gaining the goodwill of the nations visited.
At the meeting of the Council, presided over by the President and held in the council chambers in Abuja, members assessed President Buhari’s foreign trips, describing them as good for the image of Nigeria.
