The Federal government through the minister for information Lai Mohammed has responded to the allegations of lies and deceit laid forward by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Recall that Jonathan had accused the APC regime of running on ‘lies and propaganda’ also stating that Nigerians feared Buhari and that is why they are afraid to criticize.

Mohammed speaking at the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Conference for media handlers of state’s chief executives said that Buhari’s government had so far been able to provide petroleum products with the need to pay 1.3 trillion Naira in subsidy.

He said; “Those who accused this Administration of ‘propaganda and lies’ in the fuel supply sector, for example, did not tell Nigerians that whereas they paid between 800 billion and 1.3 trillion Naira as ‘subsidy’ yearly in their time, without making the products available even at regulated prices, this Administration is not paying any subsidy, yet all products are currently available at competitive prices and fuel queues are now history.

“In their time, they paid subsidy of 3.7 billion Naira DAILY in 2011; 2.2 billion Naira DAILY in 2012 and 2013, and 2.5 billion Naira DAILY in 2014, all for products that were never available.”
