Responding to this, the Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid said it would be difficult rate his performance at the Information Ministry as according to him, ‘no Information Minister has ever been popular’.
“Public Relations job cannot be quantified like other Ministries where they can boast of achievements in terms of numbers…it is difficult for the Public Relations person to come along with quantifiable figures.
“In the history of the world, there has never been a popular Public Relations person because of perception that the Information Minister is there to lie to the public on behalf of government. So I advised my deputies never to expect that they will be popular for good reasons only…,” he said.
