 Nigeria safe, secure for citizens, foreign investors - Lai Mohammed

The Federal Government has said Nigeria was now safe and secure for its citizens, tourists and investors.
It also stated over $9 billion had been spent on the building of infrastructure across the country since the commencement of Buhari’s administration.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated this during a press briefing in Abuja, yesterday, to herald the 61st meeting of UN World Tourism Organisation, UNWTO-CAF, which is due to start today and run through Wednesday, June 6, 2018.
The minister contended that whatever pockets of criminal acts that existed were being addressed squarely, insisting that “four years ago, hosting this event in Abuja would have been a pipe dream, considering the level of insecurity.”
He said: “Nigeria is safe and secure for its citizens and for foreign tourists and investors. Whatever pockets of criminal acts that exist are being addressed squarely.
“Four years ago, hosting this event in Abuja would have been a pipe dream, considering the level of insecurity. Remember that Boko Haram carried out many deadly attacks in this capital city. That is now history.”
He explained that the increased infrastructural development had helped improved the rate of foreign investors coming into the country, adding that 166 foreign delegates, 26 ministers and 332 Nigerian delegates have confirmed their attendance.
According to him, many more are still being expected
