Minister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku, has explained that the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration is not yet popular among Nigerians because it is carrying out deep reforms in several sectors of the economy.
Maku disclosed this yesterday at the 2013 ministerial platform in Abuja.
He said that despite inherited challenges from the previous administrations and insecurity bedevilling the country, the president had carried on with the transformation agenda, which is aimed at revamping the critical sectors of the economy and carrying Nigerians along in his style of governance.
Maku, who frowned at the spate of negative criticism and violence in the country, urged Nigerians to have confidence in the government “as it is poised to tackle the myriads of developmental problems confronting the country.”
‘‘This President is not popular because he is embarking on some secret and deep reforms and for him to be a reformer, he must carry out some deep reforms that could transform the country. In doing this, he has to carry the people together, which is what we are doing, Maku stated.
