The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yekini Nabena, has described the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, as the biggest problem of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It will be recalled as earlier reported by Naija News that Alhaji Mohammed on Monday had faulted the ongoing APC party registration, and revalidation exercise in Kwara State.
The minister alleged that the registration exercise is not in order in the state and called for its cancellation.
In a quick response, Nabena told the Minister to put himself in the position of the governor and submit to his leadership of the party in Kwara.
But the Information Minister on Tuesday described Nabena as an imposter, saying the APC doesn’t recognize him as the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary.
Lai Mohammed said he (Nabena) is in no position to tell him about party affairs.
Replying in a statement to newsmen on Wednesday, the APC spokesperson said Mohammed is a total failure in the administration of Buhari.
He advised the former Lagos State Chief of Staff to 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 right time, Lai Mohammed and his gang will be exposed and Nigerians will then know the real impostor, that time is sooner,” he said.
On the allegation of imposition, Nabena said 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.”
