NIGERIANS SEE ME AS A POLITICAL LIAR – LAI MOHAMMED


Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that being the face of opposition for so long before joining the government at the centre gave Nigerians the wrong ideas about him, and the perception that he is a liar.
The Minister, while speaking during the Osasu Show anchored by Osasu Igbinedion herself on AIT, said Nigerians blamed him for lying because they had associated him with the opposition party for ten years.

Lai Mohammed said no one could fault the facts and figures he had presented to Nigerians so far, stressing that he had since challenged Nigerians to point to any particular lie he told but that so far, no Nigerian had pointed to any.

Lai said: “I think I carried two major burdens. The first burden I carried is that I was the face of opposition for almost a decade and I think quite a big section of the internet has not forgiven me for the role I played in the coming of this government.

“Many of them hold me personally responsible for the defeat of the PDP. I am flattered by that but the truth of that.

“It was Nigerians that wanted a new government and I was just one of the instruments.

“I have always asked anybody to come out and say Alhaji Lai Mohammed, this is what you said at this point and we found it to be a lie and nobody so far has come out to say anything.

“You can fault me on emotions but you can never fault me on facts and figures.”
