Nigeria’s Supervising Minister of Information, Edem Duke, said Tuesday that the ministry will soon launch a fresh initiative to promote the achievements of the Goodluck Jonathan Administration on social media.

Mr. Duke, who disclosed this in Abuja on Tuesday, said the initiative will be undertaken in partnership with the office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Social Media.

The Minister stated this when he received Obi Asika, the new Senior Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, in his office.

He said the two offices will work together to present to Nigerians the achievements of Jonathan Administration via the social media.

Mr. Duke said the idea was to use the most convenient platform to showcase the achievements of the present administration.

“What it means is that information must get to our consumers at their own point of convenience, using the tool that is most convenient for them,” he said.

The minister said this had become necessary due to the eagerness of Nigerians to see the scorecard of the Jonathan Administration.

“The idea is to move our information dissemination into another gear because of the importance, the hunger of Nigerians who are very anxious to see the scorecard of this administration,” Mr. Duke said.

He said the ministry had started collating the achievements of the present administration in various sectors.

“We have done some work in trying to collect the achievements of this government in various sectors.

“But today we have decided to aggregate the efforts of our mainstream media powered by the ministry and the office of the SSA to the President on Social Media,” Mr. Duke said.

Earlier, Mr. Asika said the present administration had performed credibly well, hence the need to showcase the achievements through the social media.

He said it was unfortunate that the media pattern and consumption of news had changed.

“But now we are able to bring new media platform in collaboration with the Ministry of Information to reach most Nigerians with the Jonathan Report, which has already reached over three million Nigerians through social media platforms,” Mr. Asika said.

He also said that the programme will be aired on television and radio stations nationwide.

    An outgoing president wants to lunch non-existing achievements on facebook? The money budgeted for this empty project is enough to get at least one legacy by this mediocre administration.

  • These people should stop wasting money. Is it on Facebook we’ll get steady electricity supply or drive on good roads? Will Jonathan’s achievements on Facebook give us security? This government is most unserious.

    • Amir

      They have wasted their brain on alcohol, they have wasted their time with mediocrity and incompetence for 6 years. What more is remaining to waste for the next 17 days except looted funds in naira and dollar? A president whose achievement includes approving 9 primary schools as private universities deserves a place in ‘facebook’ hall of shame.

    Medicine after death. We have made up our minds.- SAI BUHARI !!!

  • Chris1408

    When you need social media to promote your achievements, it means you’ve failed beyond redemption.

  • Uzoma John

    Achievements are not showcased on social media rather real life. Please GEJ and his supporters should take it easy. It rather too late.

  • Du Covenant

    When has the Ministry for Information become a branch of PDP?. We want to see, feel and verify those achievements!. Gone are the days when lies and deceit are enough. Time for change is right here…right now!.

  • Charlotte

  • abc

    Too late even for the lies

  • Frances Jini

  • Edward Osadebay

    Nigerians don’t need to read about the achievements of President Jonathan. They should as a matter of right feel his so called achievements. It is deceptive and illiterate for a government to launch it’s achievements on social medium. This is a con. What purpose will serve. Honestly PDP is doing everything to lose this presidential election and lose they will going about the utterances of this mis-informed Minister.

  • tundemash

    If he likes, let him go and launch it in the moon. As long as people are paying more for rice, garrri, house rent, no electricity, no security, no job; Dumbo will back to Otuoke by the evening of May 29th in preparation for his trial.

    Since when has Ministry of Information become the media outfit for PDP/Dumbo campaign team Mr. Minister. You are Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria m0ron !

  • Mr minister, does the performance of Jonathan commensurate with the monies accrued to Jonathan government in the past six years? Where is the stolen trillions?

    • Ken

      Where did you see six years? GEJ is the best so far! Who stole the trillions? Your Apc leaders are the thieves.

      • I guess your principal who obviously is afraid of card reader is also afraid to use his otuoke technology to deal with the thieves, including himself and his gang of cabals. What a shame!
