In a statement issued yesterday, by the Governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, he described Lai Mohammed as “an embodiment of contradictions, who speaks from several sides of his mouth, turning himself into a vegetable while struggling to defend a government that has done more evil than good to Nigeria and its people.
Fayose further said that it very bad on the side of Lai Mohammed, being the Information Minister to give false news to the nation saying its “more than 20 months after he claimed that 55 Nigerians stole over N1.34 trillion from the country’s treasury from 2006 to 2013, Lai Mohammed is yet to tell Nigerians who the 55 people are”.
“On June 10, 2013, Lai Mohammed spoke against the proscription of Boko Haram, saying that it stifled the press and tampered with the fundamental human rights of Nigerians. He also spoke in support of true federalism and restructuring of Nigeria. But today, in defense of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, everything Lai Mohammed supported then, he is now against and what he was against then, he now supports”.
Fayose has thereby urged Nigerians to pressure the Information Minister to name the treasury looters sponsoring IPOB, provide proof of the sponsorship as well as read out the names of the 55 people that he said stole over N1.34.
