Lai Mohammed is APC’s priest of lies – Atiku

Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed has been described as the high priest of the All Progressives Congress (APC) cult of liars.

This view was expressed on Sunday by the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCO) in reaction to the comment of the minister:

“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.”

APCO in a statement said the true position of things was that ever since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the international media has been agog with praise for Atiku and hope for a new dawn in Nigeria.

It said: “One curious issue that kept occurring was that anytime I spoke about how we have waged war against corruption, the journalists kept asking me a question. They asked me: How can you claim to have succeeded in waging war against corruption, when one of the major contestants in the 2019 general election is actually a man with stupendous wealth but cannot explain the source of his wealth?

“How anyone would take the word of a confirmed liar, as Lai Mohammed, for the Gospel truth is beyond us.

“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?”

It added that not one single international paper, magazine, TV station or website has had anything negative to say about Atiku’s emergence, saying: “Lie only exists in the fallacious imagination of Lai Mohammed.”
