Presidential aspirant and former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s Presidential Campaign Organisation, has slammed Minister of Information, Lai Muhammed describing him as a high priest of fake news.
A statement released by Atiku media group partly reads, “How anyone would take the word of a confirmed liar, as Lai Mohammed, for the Gospel truth is beyond us. To show you how unreliable Lai Mohammed is, at the lecture in the Royal Institute for International Affairs (Chatham House) with the topic, “Nigeria’s National Unity: Towards Participation and Shared Values”, which was his main reason for going to London, Lai Mohammed said: “we do not need to do anything extra because we have delivered on all our promises and Nigerians are quite happy and satisfied with the government”.
“How the minister of information of a government that has turned Nigeria into the world headquarters for extreme poverty can say that is beyond imagination. Is Mr. Mohammed claiming that his party promised and delivered poverty and Nigerians are satisfied with this world record poverty?
If Lai Mohammed can lie openly at Chatham House in front of the international press and diplomatic corps, is it a big thing for him to lie about his accounts with the international media? Atiku media group said.”
