The deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena … has described the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed as a total failure in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Daily Post Nigeria reports, Lai Mohammed had called Yekini Nabena an impostor for advising him to work with his Kwara State Governor and allow peace to reign in the ongoing nationwide membership registration and revalidation exercise of the party.
But replying the Minister in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday, Nabena reportedly stated:
”Lai Mohammed should go back to his state chapter (Kwara) if he is still relevant there and work with the governor and other stakeholders for his voice to be heard at the national level.”
“ At the the right time, Lai Mohammed and his gang will be exposed and Nigerians will then know the real impostor, that time is sooner.”
On the allegation of imposition, Yekini Nabena says Lai Mohammed does not understand that “NEC can’t commit suicide and give birth to Caretaker Committee because it is the highest body of the party. Even the President, the governors, Senate President and the Speaker are all members of the NEC. So, if NEC commits suicide, that shows there is no more party.
“Time has left Lai Mohammed behind and he can’t catch up with time.
“Lai Mohammed and his fifth columnists are the biggest problems of this administration. As the Minister of Information and Culture that is supposed to explain the policies and programmes, including remarkable achievements of this administration to Nigerians, Lai Muhammed has failed woefully. Whatever he says is considered as a lie. If not, Lai should tell Nigerians what has been his contributions in the last five years,” Nabena challenged the Minister.
