Lai Moh’d fires back at Gov. Abdulrazaq, says ‘he’s a liar’

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described some comments made by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State against him as ‘false allegations’.

Recall that Governor AbdulRazaq, in an interview with a national newspaper, published on Monday, had alleged that the Lai Mohammed dehumanised him (Abdulrazaq) during the campaign and other preparations towards the 2019 Governorship and other elections in the state.

However, reacting to the allegations, the minister said he would respond to the allegations at the appropriate time.

The Minister stated this, on Tuesday, when he featured on a phone-in programme of TV Continental, ‘This Morning’.

Lai Mohammed said, “I read the article and I also read the response of some people.

“I believe that issues of national importance I have come here to discuss are more important than the personal disagreement between me and the governor.

“At the appropriate time and forum, I will respond to the false allegations.

The minister also declined response to questions on the parallel congresses held by the APC in some states.

According to him, the party executives appointed or elected as spokespersons and other officers are in a better position to respond to such issues.

“As a Federal Minister, I am not supposed to be partisan in the discharge of my duties, whether on intra-party or inter-party matters,’’ he said.
