Non-remittance of N100m campaign fund: 'I will respond to your false allegations in due time, Lai Mohammed tells Abdulrazaq

By Our Correspondent



The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has, however, said at the appropriate time and forum, he will respond to the false allegations levelled against him by AbdulRazaq. The Minister stated this yesterday when he featured on a phone-in programme of TV Continental, ‘This Morning’.

Recall that the governor alleged that the minister dehumanised him during the campaign and other preparations towards the 2019 governorship election in the state. AbdulRazaq also alleged that the minister did not remit some funds raised for the electioneering campaign.


Responding to a question from the anchor of the programme on the allegations and the crisis in the APC in the state, the minister said at the fullest of time, he would give his response.

“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,” he said.

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 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
