Why I Will Not Tell Lies As Information Minister – Idris
The newly appointed Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has said the ministry will not tell lies on behalf of the government.
Speaking to the press after his inauguration, Idris said the President has given him a matching order to speak the truth, which is now a new covenant between the government and the people of Nigeria.
He said, “As a minister of Information and National Orientation, I have the duty of telling Nigerians the true picture of what transpired about the various programmes and projects of the administration in all sectors.
“Being truthful and effective as minister of Information is essential to engender the trust of the people on various programmes and projects of the administration.”
