FG slam UK magazine's report on "Change begins with me"

29 September 2016, 18:30

Abuja - The Federal Government has heavily criticised The Economist, a UK-based magazine over its coverage of Muhammadu Buhari's Change Begins With Me campaign, Naij reports.

FG accused The Economist report of being racist, prejudiced and denigration of Nigeria's attempts at national re-orientation with the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed slamming the article as being racist.

"In its rush to discredit the ”Change Begins With Me” Campaign, The Economist, a widely respected newspaper, fell below its own standards by choosing to be economical with the truth. Enforcement is not part of the strategies to be employed under the Campaign, and nowhere has it been said that the ”moral police” will be unleashed, as reported by the newspaper," Mohammed said.

News24 reported that FG said the implementation of the national reorientation campaign "Change Begins with Me" started from the leadership, contrary to the position of some critics.

Mohammed said that the campaign was not meant to put any burden on Nigerians but only to ask them to do the right things.

He added that part of the campaign was for Nigerians to embrace and buy made in Nigeria products to improve the economy and create jobs.
