Minister of Information and National orientation, Muhammed Idris has made a promise to Nigerians.
He said that the ministry he heads will not tell lies to defend the government.
Addressing reporters after being sworn in, Idris said they will be transparent and truthful while giving out information.
Asides from stating that the ministry would own up where it errs or make any mistake and try to adjust where necessary, he added that National orientation would be a core aspect of the government, hence “in a matter of days we would roll out our plans to Nigerians.”
The new Minister went on to ask Nigerians to shun fake news and always clarify issues before taking it out to the public.
