Nigeria Slips Out of Buhari’s Control - On March 12, 2016, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed caused a stir while trying to justify President Muhammadu Buhari’s many foreign trips. He had declared that the economic situation in the country was completely out of the control of the government, as the crash in oil prices was having a negative spiral effect on it. He was later to deny the import of his statement saying, it was taken out of context by mischief-makers, even though the statement was a true reflection of the state of the economy – largely driven by the president’s outright mismanagement.
